Former Tennessee star Grant Williams set up the Vols’ current basketball team in style ahead of their 10-day trip to Italy on July 31.

As seen in a video posted to social media from Vol Hoops, the former Celtic and now Dallas Mavericks forward gave each U.T. player custom Beats Studio headphones for the nine-hour flight. The all-white headphones feature an orange Power T above the ear cuff.

Williams stopped by alongside former Tennessee teammate Kyle Alexander before Tennessee takes off for Europe on Monday.

Grant Williams is certainly one that loves to give back.

Williams was given the moniker of Granta Claus last December after the Celtics posted a video of the former Tennessee star delivering gifts to the staff workers in Boston’s organization.

After four years with the Boston Celtics, Williams was acquired by the Dallas Mavericks via sign and trade on July 5.

Following his arrival in Dallas, Williams was a guest on the Run Your Race podcast alongside former Maverick Theo Pinson. Williams’ Vols and Pinson’s North Carolina Tar Heels met up for a matchup in Knoxville on Dec. 17, 2017. While Tennessee did go on to lose the game by five points, Williams and Pinson recalled the beginning of the game on the podcast.

Tennessee’s 2023-2024 basketball team will embark on a 10-day trip to Italy that will include stops at Lake Como, Florence, and Rome. The Vols will also compete in three exhibition games while taking in all the sights and sounds of the European vacation.
