Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said team owner Tom Gores is more than willing to wade into luxury tax territory to retain Avery Bradley.
"The finances will not inhibit our ability to re-sign Avery at whatever it takes," SVG said. "If we’re in a situation where we want Avery back and Avery wants to be here, we’ll be able to bring him back." Assuming Bradley commands a max deal as a free agent next summer, the Pistons will more than likely have to cross the projected tax line of $123 million to re-sign him. SVG loves his 3-and-D players and Bradley is one of the best in the NBA, so it's hard to imagine the Pistons letting him walk. Aug 14 - 11:58 AM

Reggie Jackson said he's expecting Avery Bradley to get even better as a shooter.

"I'll be a beneficiary," Jackson said of the improved Bradley shooting. "I get to play a little one-on-one, attack. I don't doubt he loves to shoot. He may not have come in as the most respected shooter but he's worked extremely hard on his game for him to be where he is now after seven seasons." Bradley had a career-high 2.0 treys last year while he had a career high in scoring, rebounds, and assists. If Bradley can avoid an injury, he could put up early-round value.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN is reporting that the Celtics are trading Avery Bradley and a 2019 second-round pick to the Pistons in exchange for Marcus Morris.

The Celtics had to clear approximately $3.8 million dollars in salary to sign Gordon Hayward to a max contract. This deal does the trick, as Bradley will make $8.8 million next season and Morris will make $5.0 million. The Pistons are getting a rising star, as Bradley is viewed as one of the best perimeter defenders in the entire league, with a blossoming offensive game to match. It will be interesting to see if the Pistons chose to bring back restricted free agent Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. If the Pistons let KCP leave, Bradley should put up similar fantasy numbers to the stats he posted last season in Boston
Jul 7 - 10:02 AM

Avery Bradley, Jae Crowder and Marcus Smart have been mentioned in trade talks as the Celtics "aggressively" try to create sufficient cap space for Gordon Hayward, according to

Boston has reportedly talked with "at least half a dozen teams" and it sounds like at least one of the aforementioned players will be dealt. Jae Crowder could be their preferred option due to Hayward's arrival and the presence of recent draft picks Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. The fantasy implications hinge entirely on which teams get involved, and so far there are no specifics.
Jul 5 - 7:10 PM

Avery Bradley hit a game-winning 3-pointer with 0.1 seconds left on Sunday, finishing with 20 points in the Celtics' 111-108 Game 3 victory.

Bradley's final shot bounced around the rim a few times before dropping through the hoop, a fortuitous time-waster that prevented the Cavs from getting off another shot. He didn't shoot well overall, at 8-of-23 from the field, but he added four assists, three rebounds and two steals without any turnovers in 42 minutes. With Isaiah Thomas (hip) out of commission, Bradley's production is as critical as ever for the Celtics' playoff hopes.

Avery Bradley scored 27 points during a Game 6 loss to the Wizards on Friday, adding three rebounds, one assist, four steals and three 3-pointers in 42 minutes.

Usually, when Bradley goes off in the postseason, the Celtics have been winning those games, but not today. He played excellent defense on Bradley Beal for almost the entire night to go with the scoring. It seemed like coach Brad Stevens saw something in the Wizards defense because Bradley had several cuts to get some easy hoops to go with those three treys. He's clearly healthy and will be a very important piece on Monday.
May 12 - 10:56 PM

Avery Bradley (hips) is still all set to play in Game 6 despite how his hip pointers are still bothering him.

He finally showed up in a big way in Game 5, scoring 29 points to help the Celtics dominate to get a 3-2 lead. Bradley was a big reason why the Celtics won four straight against the Bulls, so another strong game from him today could put the C's over the top today.
May 12 - 2:37 PM

Avery Bradley said the two days off between Games 4 and 5 "were very important" to his health.

"I feel like our training staff is the best," Bradley said. "They made sure I was in [twice a day] icing my hips, taking care of myself, and I just wanted to come out and play as hard as I can, play through the pain." Bradley played through two hip pointers in Game 5, but it certainly didn't look like it as he racked up 29 points on 12-of-19 shooting with four 3-pointers, six rebounds and three assists in 30 minutes. The Celtics might be a little cautious and hold him out of Thursday's practice, but there's no reason to think he won't be ready to go for Game 6 on Friday as the Celtics look to finish off the Wizards on the road.
May 11 - 9:52 AM

Avery Bradley (hip pointers) scored a playoff career-high 29 points during Wednesday's Game 5 victory, making 12-of-19 shots with four 3-pointers, six rebounds and three assists in 30 minutes.

Bradley was visibly refreshed after getting two days to rest before Game 5 -- in the first four games of the series, he averaged 11.0 points on 34.0 percent shooting, but he dropped 25 points in the first half alone tonight. His two-way play was instrumental to the Celtics' success as the No. 1 seed in the East this season, and there's no reason to think he'll be limited for Game 6 in D.C. on Friday.
May 10 - 11:08 PM

Avery Bradley (hip) will start Game 5 on Wednesday, as expected.

Bradley joins Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Amir Johnson and Al Horford in the starting five tonight, but Brad Stevens said that he won't hesitate to yank a starter if needed. "We'll be on high alert if we need to make a change," he said. He also cautioned against turnovers, so a few careless passes could get a player benched tonight.
May 10 - 8:03 PM

Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said after Tuesday's practice that it "looks like Avery Bradley is all set to go for Game 5" on Wednesday vs. the Wizards.

Bradley injured his right hip pointer in Game 2 and his left hip pointer in Game 3, but it's not been something that's required him to spend any time on the sidelines, and he said he was feeling "a lot better" after Tuesday's practice. Stevens also implied that he'll stick with the same starting lineup he went with for Game 4, so for now, expect Isaiah Thomas, Bradley, Jae Crowder, Amir Johnson and Al Horford to be in the starting five for Game 5.

Brad Stevens said he's hopeful that Avery Bradley (left hip pointer) will be able to practice in full on Tuesday.

Bradley suffered the hip injury during Game 2, and he was noticeably inhibited by the injury during Games 3 and 4, but it doesn't seem likely that this will be an issue that forces him to spend any time on the sidelines. We'll have a better idea on his status based on his activity level during Tuesday's practice. Stay tuned.
May 8 - 2:49 PM

Avery Bradley favored his left hip during Sunday's game, which he finished with just five points on 2-of-9 shooting and four turnovers in 33 minutes.

Bradley tweaked his right hip in Game 2, and he was seen trying to loosen up his left hip multiple times while on the bench. The good news is that neither injury has cost him significant time and he should continue to play through any discomfort. We'll leave him off the injury report prior to Wednesday's Game 5.
May 7 - 9:18 PM

Avery Bradley (hip) scored seven points with two rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes against the Wizards on Thursday.

His hip wasn't a problem, but guarding Bradley Beal was in this loss. Bradley hasn't been quite as good as he was in the final four games of the Chicago series, and his usage has dropped off, as well. He'll have a couple days to get right before Sunday's Game 4.
May 4 - 10:43 PM

Avery Bradley (hip) will start in Game 3 against the Wizards on Thursday.

He was limited in practice on Wednesday, but he was never in jeopardy of missing this game. Bradley has struggled with his shot in the last couple games, making just 36.1 percent from the field in the two wins.
