Avery Bradley is ready to step into a leadership role for the Celtics during his fifth NBA season.
"I’m taking a leadership role," said Bradley. "I’m open to taking it and not only that, I’m excited to take it. I feel like I can teach the younger guys a lot, all the stuff that I’ve been through, all the stuff that I’ve learned from the amazing players I was blessed enough to play with." Bradley also stated that he's looking to improve on his passing abilities, which would help his fantasy value as he averaged just 1.4 assists last season. Bradley figures to be a late-round sleeper in standard leagues this year, but just know that in four years of NBA experience, Bradley has never suited up for more than 64 games. Aug 24 - 12:52 PM

Avery Bradley received calls from other teams during restricted free agency, but knew he would be returning to Boston.

"They were the first team that called and -- we had other calls -- but Boston, I knew I was coming back here," Bradley said. The 23-year-old averaged 14.9 points, 1.3 three-pointers, 3.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and 1.1 steals in 60 games with the Celtics last season and has the potential to be a late-round fantasy sleeper -- especially if Rajon Rondo is traded in the near future.

Avery Bradley officially signed a four-year, $32 million deal with the Celtics on Tuesday.

Bradley averaged a career-high 14.9 points last year, while shooting 39.5 percent from downtown, and the Celtics are convinced that he'll only get better. "He is still far from reaching his ceiling," said team president Danny Ainge. "We're ecstatic to have him back." The contract is fully guaranteed with no option years, and Bradley is locked in as Boston's starting SG for the foreseeable future.

Avery Bradley will reportedly sign his four-year, $32 million deal with the Celtics on Tuesday, according to Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald.

This should put an end to speculation that the Celtics were holding off on signing the deal so that they could include Bradley as part of a trade. According to Bradley's representative, Mitchell Butler, the hold-up came because the two sides were trying to iron out the language and the terms. Bradley averaged 14.9 points, 1.3 three-pointers, 3.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and 1.1 steals in 60 games with the Celtics last season and could emerge as a fantasy sleeper if Rajon Rondo ends up being traded.

The Celtics and restricted free agent SG Avery Bradley have agreed to terms on a four-year, $32 million contract, according to Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald.

Boston had the right to match any contract offer for Bradley, but they presented him with a lucrative enough offer to bypass the restricted free agent process. He didn't come cheap, at $8 million per season, and the deal should help set the market for players like Isaiah Thomas and Lance Stephenson. Pesky defense has been Bradley's calling-card but he showed an expanded offensive game last season, averaging 14.9 points, 1.3 threes (39.5 percent from downtown), 3.8 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game. He was a late-round fantasy value last year and hasn't played more than 64 games in any of his four seasons in the NBA, however, so there's some inherent risk in drafting him.
Jul 2 - 9:27 AM

Restricted free agent Avery Bradley has received interest from the Celtics and the Sixers.

The Celtics aren't a surprise but this is the first we've heard about Philly. Boston may not want to pay the market rate for Bradley and they've been tied to Isaiah Thomas since drafting Marcus Smart. Bradley landing in Philly would probably be a better-case scenario for his fantasy value, and James Anderson was just waived earlier today for what it's worth.
Jul 1 - 1:15 AM

Restricted free agent Avery Bradley said he wants to remain with the Celtics.

"I’ve been worried about getting better. I try not to think about anything I can’t control," Bradley said. "All I can do is continue to try to get better every single day, and I know everything else will work out." After a mini-breakout in 2013-14, the Celtics are likely going to face some competition from teams to sign Bradley to a long-term deal. His minutes shouldn't be affected by Marcus Smart or James Young too much, so his fantasy value could hold in the late-middle rounds thanks to some improved 3-point shooting last season.

The Celtics have extended a qualifying offer to Avery Bradley, making him a restricted free agent.

It was a no-brainer after Bradley really came on last season. He was a bit of a late bloomer despite how he was rated as one of the best prospects out of high school -- many had him higher than John Wall -- and he still has room to grow at age 23. The move to shooting guard has worked out well and the Celtics will likely match almost any offer.

Avery Bradley said on Thursday that Boston is "where I want to be".

"I've been in Boston for four years and I love it," Bradley said. "I love the fans, the front office. I definitely want to be back." He had his best statistical year this past season, posting career highs of 14.6 points, 3.8 rebounds and 39.5 percent from the 3-point line. What is concerning to the Celtics is he only played in 60 games this season as he battled injuries all year. Bradley is a restricted free agent heading into next season, and he may regret turning down Boston's four-year, $24 million extension offer this past winter.
May 22 - 4:40 PM

Avery Bradley's decision to cut off extension talks during the winter, even though both sides weren't very far apart, may have hurt his best-case money scenario for next season.

Boston was discussing a four-year, $24 million extension before Bradley and his camp decided to break off the talks. As Bradley struggled through yet another injury plagued season (only making it through 60-games) he has definitely earned the "injury prone" label. Bradley has never made it through a full NBA season, and his perceived brittleness will likely limit what he finds on the open market this summer. The talent is there, but an injury prone label is never a good thing to have.
May 4 - 9:30 AM

Since returning from an injury three games ago, Avery Bradley has gone 13-of-16 from beyond the arc.

Bradley has really been draining his 3-point attempts lately, and with a favorable matchup vs. the 76ers on Monday, that hot streak could continue. Despite a laundry list of injuries, Bradley has turned in a nice season, improving his averages across the board in points (14.7) rebounds (3.8) 3-points made (1.3) and shot attempts (13.5). If he can manage to stay healthy next season, he could be a nice asset to have on your fantasy roster.
Apr 13 - 9:12 AM

Avery Bradley hit 9-of-15 shots and five 3-pointers for 25 points, eight rebounds, two assists and a steal on Saturday.

This one was easy to see coming, as Rajon Rondo and Jerryd Bayless were both out for the Celtics. Bradley wasn't a good shooter when he entered the league, but has turned it around to become a pretty consistent NBA scorer. Use him freely over the last couple games.
Apr 12 - 10:37 PM

Avery Bradley scored a team-high 22 points during Friday's 106-103 win over the Bobcats, adding two boards, one assist, two steals and four 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

Apparently, he must have spent a lot of time shooting 3-pointers while out with his Achilles injury. In his two games back in the lineup, Bradley is 8-of-10 from deep on his way to averages of 23.0 points, 3.0 boards and 2.5 steals. Hopefully the back-to-back factor doesn't keep him out of the lineup on Saturday because he's played very well over the past couple months. Plus, the Celtics could be without Rajon Rondo (shin) and Jerryd Bayless (knee).
Apr 11 - 11:53 PM

Celtics GM Danny Ainge said that Avery Bradley's injury history is "a concern," but the team is still "big fans of Avery's."

"He’s very young, and they're not any injuries that have set him way back," Ainge said. "The shoulder injuries two years ago took away a summer of his development." Avery has missed 22 gamest this season due to right ankle and Achilles problems, and it will be interesting to see how he's valued in restricted free agency this summer.
Apr 10 - 5:16 PM

Avery Bradley played well in his return to the lineup on Wednesday vs. the Hawks, making 8-of-12 from the field for 24 points with four boards, two assists, three steals and four 3-pointers.

He made all four free throws, all four attempts from deep and only turned the ball over once. Bradley played 35 minutes tonight, which is a lot higher than many expected after missing three games due to an Achilles issue. He's having a career year and is worth a look in all standard leagues.
