Avery Bradley started at point guard and scored 12 points on Sunday, adding one assists, one rebound, one block, and one steal in 26 minutes.
He shot 6-of-13 from the field and 0-of-4 from deep so it wasn't the best game from him. His value will elevate slightly until Rajon Rondo returns, but Bradley is little more than a late-round asset at the moment. Oct 19 - 5:31 PM

Avery Bradley knocked down six 3-pointers against the Sixers on Thursday, finishing with 20 points, one rebound and one turnover.

He's been extremely efficient so far this month, posting a sterling 65.2 effective field goal percentage in the preseason. Bradley's minutes are safe at shooting guard and he'll look to improve off his shocking career-high 39.5 percent from deep in 2013-14. He won't give you much else besides scoring, but feel free to give him a look if that's your fancy.

Avery Bradley hit 6-of-11 shots and a 3-pointer for 13 points, two assists and a steal on Wednesday.

He's the Celtics starting shooting guard and will have some big games this season, along with some duds. He had 22 points on Friday and is worth targeting in the later rounds of your draft.

Avery Bradley made 9-of-15 from the field for 22 points against the Raptors during a 116-109 loss on Friday, adding two rebounds and four 3-pointers in 21 minutes.

He has just one assist in his three preseason games and has really lacked the ability to fill up a stat sheet in his career. Bradley has been much better from beyond the arc and is trending up, but the lack of diversity to his contributions make him a lower upside target.
Oct 10 - 11:24 PM

Avery Bradley made 3-of-10 from the field field and missed both of his free throws for eight points on Monday against the 76ers.

He had two 3-pointers, two turnovers and two fouls, but didn't register any other stats. Bradley hasn't been a stat-stuffer and his game hasn't yielded positive results for owners in standard leagues. There are probably better late-round targets.

Avery Bradley said his top individual goal this season is to make the NBA All-Defensive First Team.

Bradley struggled at the point guard position last season, but will exclusively play shooting guard this year, according to head coach Brad Stevens. Bradley averaged 22.4 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.4 steals, and 3.6 three-pointers during five April games last season and while that's a small sample size, the 23-year-old could be a late-round fantasy steal if he's able to take another step in his fifth NBA season.

Avery Bradley will not be an option at point guard this season.

Coach Brad Stevens said he wants to play Bradley exclusively at shooting guard. That means sense because Bradley really struggled at the point and had a mini-breakout last season after being bumped to the wing. The Celtics offered up some big money to keep him and he could improve even more in his age-23 season.
Sep 30 - 8:16 PM

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.
Aug 21 - 11:57 AM

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.
Jul 15 - 11:55 AM

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.
