The deal averages out to 8 million a year. Is that a bit high? Maybe it is, and maybe Bradley is ready to be healthy. I'm thrilled just for the fact that I think he's better than a Hayward or other guard that Ainge looked at.
Free agent point guard Avery Bradley has agreed to re-sign with the Boston Celtics on Wednesday, according to a league source.
Bradley's new deal is for $32 million over four years. The Boston Herald first reported the agreement.
The Celtics had originally extended a $3.6 million qualifying offer on Monday that gave them an opportunity to match any outside offer that Bradley received when free agency opened.
Boston made Bradley a priority when free agency opened at midnight on July 1 and the two sides, who couldn't come to an agreement on an extension before an October deadline to extend rookie pacts, moved quick to put a deal in place.
