Celtics make deal to send Bradley to Detroit, ESPN reports

- Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) July 7, 2017Sources: Detroit sending forward Marcus Morris to Boston for guard Avery Bradley.

An off-season that presumably was going to be uneventful and predictable for the Detroit Pistons took an unexpected turn Friday.

Now, the Pistons have officially renounced their rights to Caldwell-Pope.

Bradley, 26, has been selected to the NBA's all-defensive team twice - second team in 2012-13 and first team in 2015-16 - and averaged career highs of 16.3 points, 6.1 rebounds and 2.2 assists last season with the Celtics, where he's played all seven of his seasons in the National Basketball Association.

"It's no secret that Avery had been one of my favorite players, and on behalf of our entire organization, I'd like to thank him and Ashley for all of their contributions on and off the court", Ainge said in a statement.

While 6.5 rebounds in only 17.5 minutes is impressive enough, Dedmon's per 36 averages were 10.5 points and 13.6 rebounds, with 9.9 of those rebounds being on the defensive glass. The Celtics will likely pay Morris and Smart less in 2018-19 than they would have paid Bradley all by himself.

Contrary to reports, the Boston Celtics are not done making moves this offseason. Despite climbing as high as the second seed in the East, Boston would finish in fifth place and a showdown with the Atlanta Hawks was looming.

Entering free agency, many theorised that Hayward would indeed go to the Celtics to pair up with his old college coach back in Butler - Brad Stevens - and move to the weaker Eastern Conference where he could push the C's over the three-time defending conference champions, the Cleveland Cavaliers. Bradley is in the final year of his current contract and is set to make a little more than $8.8M this upcoming season. In the 2017 draft, they were able to select Luke Kennard.

What does the move allow the Celtics to fill the remainder of their roster for the 2017-18 season amid a complex salary cap squeeze?

Isaiah Thomas averaged 28.9 points last season, and Al Horford, Jae Crowder and Marcus Smart were all in double figures as well. The Pistons finished dead last in the league in true shooting percentage.

Last season for Detroit, Morris averaged 14 points and 5 rebounds per game. The small forward shot 46.3 percent from the field and 39.8 percent from three-point range.
