Celtics make deal to send Bradley to Detroit, ESPN reports

Will sign with Celtics Boston Celtics 2016-17 player report card: Jae Crowder
June Sullivan | 09 July, 2017, 01:18

The Bradley deal creates the salary-cap space needed to sign free-agent forward Gordon Hayward to a four-year, $128 million maximum contract.

Boston.cbslocal.com reports that Morris is a big fan of former KU and former Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce, who according to published reports will have his No. 34 retired in Boston perhaps as early as next season. If you want details on the trade and Avery Bradley's contract, then our Avery Bradley wiki is just for you.

Bradley, a 6-foot-2 combo guard, is regarded as one of the best perimeter defenders in the league and his acquisition spells an unexpected end to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope's tenure with the Pistons. With Jaylen Brown - last year's No. 3 pick - also in the fold, the Celtics look primed to contend for years to come, although the roster could keep changing. The move gives the Celtics front office $30.8 million ($1.1 million over Hayward's 2017-18 due), which opens another move: Ditching Jordan Mickey or Demetrius Jackson would give Boston space to sign 2016 first-round pick Guerschon Yabusele.

#7 The last straw to pull out of his decision would be that next year both Isaiah Thomas and Avery Bradley will become free agents and likely demand max contracts or at least somewhere in that region.

Bradley is entering the final season of a four-year contract, so it's not clear if he can be a long-term solution for Detroit. And trust me, the Celtics weren't eager to unload Bradley. The Celtics will likely pay Morris and Smart less in 2018-19 than they would have paid Bradley all by himself.

"It's no secret that Avery had been one of my favorite players, and on behalf of our entire organization, I'd like to thank him and Ashley for all of their contributions on and off the court", Ainge said in a press release. In the playoffs, he upped that average to 16.7 ppg including a 29-point performance in the conference semifinals against Washington.

The Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers also were pursing Bradley in the past 24 hours, league sources told ESPN. The team is desperately in need of big men to play alongside center Al Horford. He will be an unrestricted free agent next summer. The Pistons were woeful at shooting and defending last season, and oddly enough, that's not a great mix in the National Basketball Association. Rudy Gay was seen as another option, but he signed with the Spurs, and there was talk about a possible attempt to get Porter (though that never made much sense), which went away when he agreed to the deal with the Nets.
