Robert Williams has not been an NBA player for long, but the beginning of his professional career hasn't exactly gone smoothly.

First, he overslept his own introductory press conference and then he missed the Celtics' first summer league practice after failing to make his flight.

And now it turns out the 20-year-old rookie reportedly has misplaced his wallet twice since being drafted June 21, which might have been at least one reason he didn't make his flight at the beginning of the month.

Per MassLive's Tom Westerholm:

On the Friday before the Boston Celtics began practicing for Las Vegas Summer League, Robert Williams had a flight to catch back to College Station, TX. Before he went to the airport, he worked out with Celtics coaches in the morning, gave his introductory press conference around noon, and participated in a Celtics Shamrock Foundation event at a local school a couple of hours later.

All the while, Celtics staffers were racing to find Williams’ wallet.

The rookie big man realized he had left it at his hotel, and making his 5:30 p.m. flight briefly looked dicey as the community event ticked toward 3 and then 3:30 p.m. Eventually, however, the staffers recovered the wallet back at the hotel, and Williams finished his event peacefully.

A day later, as Williams was preparing to leave for the airport to hop on a flight back to Boston, he realized that — once again — his wallet was missing. Once again, he knew where it was — former Texas A&M forward D.J. Hogg had it. But Hogg was already back in Dallas, nearly three hours away.

MassLive notes that Hogg suggested Williams may have missed his flight because he couldn't find his wallet. However, Williams was confident he'd still be able to get through security without his ID.

"It was like almost morning, close to the flight, just getting everything ready, putting everything by the door, and I'm like '(Expletive), I ain't got my ID,'" Williams said. "I'm like, 'Cool, they'll let me through.' I kept telling myself that. And then a couple of my homeboys was like 'Bro, like, that (expletive) is gonna be tough.
