The Boston Celtics have selected Tennessee Volunteers forward Grant Williams with the 22nd pick in the NBA Draft.

Williams led the SEC in scoring with 18.8 points per game last season, and his 7.5 rebounds per game were seventh in the conference.

Williams won SEC Player of the Year in 2017-18 and 2018-19, making him the 11th player to ever win the award more than once.
