BOSTON - The Boston Celtics introduced Robert Williams on Friday morning at the Auerbach Center. The team’s first round draft choice met the media alongside head coach Brad Stevens and General Manager Danny Ainge.

Despite questions surrounding Williams’ motor, the 6-10 forward stressed his hard working mentality. In fact, he was working out at the Auerbach Center at 6:30 A.M. on Friday morning.

Williams seemed confident and ready to go when asked about the next few months, while also praising the efforts of Al Horford. “Al doesn’t rush at all. He takes his time. Even if some people say his moves are too slow, they’re efficient. They work. His game, from dribble handoffs to how he’s coming off screens in attacking mode, it’s all beautiful. It all helps me prepare myself.” The Texas A&M product will certainly benefit from playing under Horford.
