Avery Bradley G BOS 2 Months

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 new 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. Details of the contract should surface soon, and it 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, so there's some inherent risk in drafting him.

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.

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 one 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.

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.

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) 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.

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.
