Avery Bradley is looking to get paid this summer. His shooting has improved a great deal, and his defense has been more controlled in the best way. But for me, his injuries worry me. I don't know if I pay him more than 6 million a season. Those extra millions add up when your trying to build a team, and if you don't want to pay a huge luxury tax.
According to Sports Illustrated's Chris Mannix
Mannix reported Tuesday that rival executives think Bradley "could command a contract in the neighborhood of $7 million to $9 million per year." The Boston Celtics would have the option of matching any offer, but a salary that rich could leave them with a difficult decision. Three league sources agreed during separate conversations with MassLive.com that $6 million per season sounds about fair, but all it would take is one team willing to pay more.
