Breaking down the Avery Bradley trade between the Celtics and Pistons

Will sign with Celtics

THE Boston Celtics are finalizing a trade that would send starting two-guard Avery Bradley to the Detroit Pistons for Marcus Morris and a second-round draft pick, multiple reports bared on Friday.

The Miami Heat traded oft-injured forward Josh McRoberts to the Dallas Mavericks for center A.J. Hammons and a 2023 second-round draft pick. Bradley set career highs in points per game (16.3), rebounds per game (6.1), and assists per game (2.2). He carries a cap hit of $5 million in 2017-18 and is signed through the 2018-19 season.

Caldwell-Pope seemed sure to sure to find a diminished role in Detroit next season.

Morris will be joining his fourth team in six National Basketball Association seasons; he averaged 14.0 points and 4.6 rebounds last season. These exceptions allow teams with an extra bit of cap space to bring in a free agent and go over the luxury tax threshold without having to pay the penalty. Bradley locked down opponents when Thomas could not, and shot the second-best on the other end of the perimeter (of all Celtics who averaged at least one 3-point attempt a game).

"We are thrilled to share that we welcomed our son Liam James Tell into our family ", the couple exclusively told the magazine. She told People last month about her impending parenthood that she was preparing to throw herself into it fully.

"But he gives the Celtics something they didn't have with Kelly Olynyk, a better rebounder and a more physical defender", said Nelson. After a drawn out process, Hayward made a decision to rejoin his ex-Butler head coach Brad Stevens in Boston.

Bradley will also be pairing up in the backcourt for Detroit with Reggie Jackson.

With the departure of Bradley, look for more playing time for young guards Marcus Smart and Terry Rozier. The Utah Jazz would miss out on a previously discussed sign-and-trade deal for Crowder, per ESPN.com reporters Ramona Shelburne and Wojnarowski. Bradley has also been regarded as one of the better two-way guards in the league, being a two-time member of the All-NBA Defensive Team in his career (and arguably was snubbed of that honor this season).

The Pistons have spent recent years trying to do the best they can with limited resources each offseason. Thomas is the team's starting point guard, though he could play alongside Smart, who isn't almost the same kind of scorer. It only becomes a great move if they sign Bradley long-term, and he'll command much more than his current $8.8 million salary. Yabusele's $2.2 million rookie contract can now be fit in, so you can expect the Celtics to sign the 21-year-old power forward to a deal in the coming days.
