Terrence Williams, you passed the test.

The Celtics brought in the former Louisville wingman and NBA veteran, gave him a 10-contract and waited to see if he could help and provide a little depth.

The answer is yes, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

Williams got in three Celtics games for a total of 44 minutes, but they liked what they saw both in games and in practice. He’s not going to see much time, especially come the playoffs, but it’s about filling out the last couple spots on the roster with guys who can help in practice and in the roles given when called on.

This does not impact the two outstanding 10-day contracts the Celtics have to check out big men — D.J. White and Shavlik Randolph — who also are trying to earn a reserve role for the rest of the season.

    i wonder if any player who started their season with a 10 day contract, on a playoff team, will have a significant play in the post season. not just a hot highlight, but a play that helps impact a win. that would be a story.

    I’m happy for T-Will. I think his attitude could use a little Doc/KG.

    TWill must be in heaven right now. Dude went from playing thousands of miles away to being a used rotation player on a “if everything breaks right and I mean everything” contender.

    Note: I am a Celtics fan.

    Terrence Williams attitude screwed his career all up. I remember the nets sent him to the D-league for punishment and he averaged a triple double. Dude have game just his attitude is ugly.
