Suns planning to pursue Pistons' Avery Bradley in free agency

Clippers reportedly not done blowing it up after Blake Griffin trade

The Detroit Pistons have made starting shooting guard Avery Bradley available in trade talks, league sources told ESPN.

Bringing in Bradley, of course, would effectively give Booker more to do offensively, pushing him toward a primary initiator role as the team's point guard.

Bradley is averaging 15.0 points per game and is shooting just 40.9 percent from the floor, down from 16.3 points and 46.3 percent a year ago with Boston. In addition, there is more value to trading Bradley due to his contract expiration - he is slated to become a free agent this upcoming summer.

As the calendar gets closer to flipping to February, it's getting closer to basketball fans' favorite time of year, the NBA trade deadline. Bradley is now making $8.8 million in the final year of his contract.

Bradley is now playing out the final season of a four-year contract that he signed with the Celtics, in which he has been paid an average salary of $8 million per season.

A crowdfunding campaign raised almost $140,000 to finance the rescue and support the wife and three children of Mackiewicz. In June a Spanish man and an Argentinian perished in an avalanche while trying to scale its peak.

According to the report, Detroit is looking for a trade partner for Bradley to avoid receiving no compensation should Bradley leave via free agency.

He sat out Sunday's loss in Cleveland because it was the second on back-to-back nights after returning from a groin injury that forced him to miss seven games in December.

Crowder, like Bradley, played for the Celtics last season and has floated between roles as a starter and reserve with the Cavaliers.

It's been a season full of ups and downs for the Detroit Pistons, but their current eight-game slide has made the front office start to consider the future. But I don't think this deal was about Bradley vs. Morris, it was Bradley vs. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope or Bradley's replacement vs. Caldwell-Pope.

Bradley is considered one of the NBA's best two-way shooting guards.
