Williams, 25, starred at University of Louisville under Rick Pitino and has bounced around the basketball world ever since. He was drafted 11th overall in 2009 by the Nets. From there, he's played for the Houston Rockets, Sacramento Kings and joined the Detroit Pistons briefly before the 2012-13 season. After being waived by Detroit, he landed with the Guangdong Southern Tigers in China.

Washburn reported that Williams needed a clearance letter from the Tigers before his deal with the Celtics could be made official. Williams will meet the Celtics in Denver for their game with the Nuggets tomorrow, according to Washburn.
