Beyond that the league schedule is going to be heavily compressed next year, using the Williams Gang as your only backups is a recipe for Theis breaking down. So having two starter quality centers means that, in theory, Boston gets to the playoffs next year with both guys rested and healthy. And still plenty of minutes for Gill and Rill to get playing time and develop. One more big wing and they’re ready to roll.Williams is always hurt (whether he's on the court or not) and he's in year 3. At this point the Celtics cannot rely on him to be the only backup big, and if he wants the playing time, he has to get there on his own. Theis is undersized (making him weak in a few key matchups) and a FA after this year.
