Celtics Draft Tennessee Forward Grant Williams At No. 22

BOSTON (CBS) -- With their second pick on draft night, the Boston Celtics took Tennessee forward Grant Williams at No. 22.

Williams played three seasons at Tennessee, averaging 15.7 points off 52 percent shooting and 6.5 rebounds per game. In his junior season, the 6-foot-7 Williams averaged 18.8 points and 7.5 rebounds, shooting 56 percent from the floor. He also attempted seven free throws per game, hitting 82 percent at the line.

He was a consensus first-team All American and SEC Player of the Year last season. Williams is a gritty player who can take care of business down low and score in the paint.

With their first pick of the night, the Celtics drafted guard Romeo Langford out of Indiana with the No. 14 overall selection.
