The NBA’s Summer League is underway, meaning we get our first look at a few Tennessee players in the pros. Grant Williams headlines the group for the Vols after being selected 22nd overall by the Boston Celtics.
In Las Vegas, Williams got his first pro action for the Celtics, coming off of the bench. He ended up logging 19 minutes on the night, putting up 12 points and six rebounds. He added two assists, two steals and two blocks. Williams shot 50 percent (4-8) from the field.
Just your typical night for the former Tennessee star power forward.
Here’s a look at Grant drilling a three, which is something that he’s going to have to get more consistent with at the next level. So far, so good.
Grant Williams excites me a lot. This is a 6'7", 240lb forward initiating pick-and-roll, making the correct read off of a hard gap stunt and with the awareness to relocate and hit an open three.— Andrew Kurzeja (@AndrewKurzeja) July 7, 2019

Admiral Schofield also made his debut on Saturday night after being selected by the Washington Wizards in the second round. The 6-6, 240 pound wing also came off of the bench, putting together a productive night.
Schofield logged 23 minutes and scored nine points, while added five rebounds on the night. He added an assist, while shooting 50 percent (3-6) from the field.
Jordan Bone has yet to appear for the Pistons as he awaits the league’s trades to become official. Bone was selected in the late second round and ultimately acquired by Detroit. Kyle Alexander is spending his summer playing with the Miami Heat, looking to make an impression ahead of this NBA season.
Williams will return to action on Monday night as the Celtics face the Cavaliers. You can catch that game on NBA TV at 7:30 p.m ET, if you’re looking to kill a little time before football season. Admiral Schofield’s Wizards hit the floor at 5:30 p.m. ET on Monday, also on NBA TV.
