Marcus Morris headed to Celtics in two-player exchange

Posted July 08, 2017

The 26-year-old guard was dealt along with a second-round pick to the Detroit Pistons for forward Marcus Morris yesterday.

The deal was much needed since Boston wanted to clear up salary cap space after agreeing to sign all star Gordon Hayward to a 4 year, $128 million dollar deal. Bradley is in the final year of his current contract and is set to make a little more than $8.8M this upcoming season.

Asa Hutchinson issued a statement following the shooting, expressing sympathy for the victims and vowing action, according to CNN. At the crime scene, windows on the club's second story were shattered and empty drink cups were scattered across the ground.

Bradley was instead traded to the Pistons in exchange for Marcus Morris.

These Boston Celtics trade rumors are obviously more about saving money than improving the roster.

The only issue the Detroit Pistons have in front of them is that Bradley may only be with the Pistons for one year. Marcus is best suited at power forward, and he's also capable of sliding to center and guarding multiple positions. He will be an unrestricted free agent next summer. He'll provide an immediate upgrade at shooting guard in Detroit - even over Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who remains a restricted free agent. Bradley was the first truly painful casualty as Ainge looks to return the Celtics to contender status.

Marcus Morris was taken with the #14 overall pick in the 2011 National Basketball Association draft by the Houston Rockets, one slot after his brother was taken at #13 by the Phoenix Suns. Bradley now brings some extra scoring punch - he averaged more points than any Pistons player last season. He may give it all he has every night but according to Bradley last season is the first time he was a vocal leader and Celtics forward Al Horford helped. At best, they've just kicked their luxury-tax concerns down the road a year, since re-signing Bradley would push them deep into the tax in 2018-19. He averaged 16.3 points per game for Boston this past season in an average of more than 33 minutes per game.
