In a noteworthy three-team sign-and-trade agreement, the Dallas Mavericks have secured the services of restricted free agent forward Grant Williams on a lucrative four-year contract worth $54 million.

Reliable sources have confirmed the details of this deal, which involved the Boston Celtics and the San Antonio Spurs as well. As part of the arrangement, the San Antonio Spurs will acquire forward Reggie Bullock from the Mavericks along with an unprotected first-round pick swap set for 2030.

In return for their involvement, the Boston Celtics will be receiving multiple second-round draft picks and a valuable $6.2 million trade exception. Grant Williams, a first-round pick from Tennessee in the 2019 NBA Draft, has been a part of the Celtics organization for the past four seasons.

During the previous season, he showcased his skills by averaging 8.1 points, 4.6 rebounds, and an impressive 39.5% shooting accuracy from beyond the arc in 79 games, including 23 starts. Throughout his career, which spans 288 games with 58 starts, the 24-year-old Williams has maintained averages of 6.2 points and 3.4 rebounds.

However, he recently underwent surgery on his left hand, but is expected to make a full recovery well before the commencement of the upcoming training camp. It is worth noting that this trade marks the second major departure for the Boston Celtics during this offseason, with guard Marcus Smart, the 2021-22 NBA Defensive Player of the Year, having been previously traded to the Memphis Grizzlies.

It is important to highlight that the teams involved in this transaction are not permitted to officially sign free agents or publicly announce the trades until Thursday, as per the league rules. As for Reggie Bullock, a seasoned player at 32 years old, he has spent the last two seasons of his decade-long NBA career with the Dallas Mavericks.

During the previous season, he contributed an average of 7.2 points and 3.6 rebounds across 78 games, with 55 starts. His notable performance included making 151 three-pointers, the second-highest in his career, trailing only his 163 three-pointers made during the 2020-21 campaign with the New York Knicks.

Throughout his career, spanning 512 games with 294 starts across six teams, Bullock has impressively registered 852 successful three-pointers.
