The Boston Celtics traded Avery Bradley, a fan favorite, to the Detroit Pistons for 27-year-old forward Marcus Morris.

Despite agreeing to a four-year, $128 million deal with Gordon Hayward, the Boston Celtics still had work to do in order to create enough cap space to actually sign their star acquisition.

The Detroit Pistons acquired Avery Bradley in a trade with the Boston Celtics earlier today, and he's expected to be the team's starting shooting guard.

Bradley is coming off a tremendous season in which he was poised to make the All-Star team but missed almost six weeks from mid-January to late February with a strained Achilles tendon. "We're trying to get a team that not only is a group of good players, but also a team that does fit".

The NBA has three forms of the mid-level exception: a non-taxpayer exception for teams under the salary cap, a taxpayer exception for teams over the salary cap, and a room exception for teams too close to the salary cap to use the non-taxpayer exception.

Beggars can't be choosers, and while teams around the league surely want some of Boston's spare parts, no one is going to part with prime assets when they know the Celtics have no choice but to shed salary. "Looking to finish out the roster with two more".

Detroit had been reluctant to meet Caldwell-Pope's $25 million-plus asking price.

Morris averaged 14 points and 4.8 rebounds per game last season.

This season Bradley will be entering the final year of his current contract.

The Pistons have spent recent years trying to do the best they can with limited resources each offseason.

McRoberts is due to make just over $6 million next season.

Outside of Isaiah Thomas, the Celtics are loaded with interchangeable pieces. The small forward shot 46.3 percent from the field and 39.8 percent from three-point range.

With Bradley headed to Motown, the Pistons withdrew their qualifying offer and renounced the rights to restricted free-agent guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

ESPN first reported the trade was being finalized. Smart now needs to take a page out of Bradley's book and make the shooting improvement that most are saying is impossible.
