TheBoston Celticshave a big decision to make, one that s gonna cost them nearly $300 million for the next five years.
But besides Jaylen Brown and his future, they also need to weigh in on what s going to happen with Grant Williams.
Williams will be a restricted free agent, meaning they have the right to match every offer he gets.
However, they might not be able to go as high as other teams, as Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated reports that the Dallas Mavericks, Indiana Pacers, and Orlando Magic all have shown an interest in his services.

Moreover, Mannix adds that multiple young teams with cap space could be intrigued by the prospect of making a run at him, citing the Houston Rockets as a potential example, given the fact that they re now coached by his former coach, Ime Udoka.
While not an All-Star by any means, Williams has been one of the Celtics most steady contributors for years now.
He can hold his own on defense and guard multiple positions, and he s an efficient three-point shooter from everywhere beyond the arc, not to mention he s a high-IQ and big-energy guy off the bench.
Williams could thrive in the right system and could even be a starter in the right place.
He s still likely to run it back in Boston to try and make another championship run, but don t be shocked if multiple teams come on knocking and trying to lure him away from the TD Garden this summer.
