Celtics expected to move Jae Crowder following Avery Bradley trade


According to an ESPN report, the Boston Celtics are finalizing a trade to send guard Avery Bradley to the Detroit Pistons.

Mar 8, 2017; Indianapolis, IN, USA; Detroit Pistons forward Marcus Morris (13) continues to argue with a referee after being called for a technical foul against the Indiana Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Morris started 79 games for the Pistons past year and averaged 14.0 points and 4.6 rebounds per contest, while shooting 33 percent from 3-point territory. He is now an unrestricted free agent, free to sign with any team he chooses.

The Celtics are weaker on the perimeter, though Marcus Smart can handle some of Bradley's defensive responsibilities. While the Celtics are still making a big addition to their backcourt, losing a fan favorite like Bradley to pick up what was thought to be a no-strings attached free agent has to sting a bit.

Players find a more personal and expansive world full of heroes and villains, iconic locations and more. A promotion to purchase the game for 80% off is also running on those platforms and PlayStation 4 .

Morris averaged 14 points and 4.8 rebounds per game last season. And while Smart is also in the final year of his deal, he'll be a restricted free agent next summer, allowing Boston to control the process and potentially keep down his salary.

He shot over 46 percent from the field and 39 percent from deep. Morris will likely fill a void left in the frontcourt by Kelly Olynyk's departure to the Heat via free agency, as it left the Celtics rather light on reliable power forward depth. Both the Boston Celtics and Detroit Pistons seem immediately pleased about these National Basketball Association trade rumors, so thus far, it is a win for both franchises. Much of the attention this offseason has centered on Jackson and big man Andre Drummond, since Detroit could use more production from that point guard-center tandem. Crowder is a more valuable trade chip than Bradley ever would be (even though Bradley was the better two-way player) thanks to his absurdly team-friendly deal that runs through 2020. I think they somewhat understate his value, which is somewhere in the very good range.

The question now is what the Celtics do with all these forwards. The Pistons relied heavily on the trio of Morris, Tobias Harris and Jon Leuer at forward last season. Detroit has another solid wing player in Tobias Harris, and the Pistons drafted sharp-shooting Duke guard Luke Kennard in the first round.

Of course, it remains to be seen what head coach and team president Stan Van Gundy has in the works.
