The Celtics are trying to keep Avery Bradley and they offered him a four-year, $24M contract extension last summer but he turned it down.

He wants at least 8 mln per year

Per Bleacher Report,  In fact, that's why, according to a source, the Celtics offered Avery Bradley a four-year $24 million deal (with a team option on the fourth year) this past offseason, but he turned it down. That's because he wants at least $8 million per year, which another source confirmed. Bradley will be a restricted free agent next summer, so things could get "tricky," as one source said, for the Celtics to keep him.
While Bradley had been considered limited offensively coming into this season, he's improved in that category from November to December. So far this month, he's averaging 15.2 points per game while shooting 50 percent and 60 percent from the field and three-point range, respectively.

If that's the case then I believe he will be gone by the trading deadline. I don't see Danny wanting to pay Bradley 8 million a year.

Dang you just beat me to it! TP ;D
I think that they would eventually agree on something during FA. I mean they could meet halfway and give Avery 7 million pr. year.
On the other side, he is a restricted FA so i dont see him going anywhere, unless its through a trade.

Don't think that will happen, I don't see anyone offering him this type of contract next summer.

It is Bleacher Report, but I suppose it's possible. I don't know how psyched I am going forward with 8 mill / yr for Bradley. I guess if Rondo were more in the Westbrook mold (score first pg), it would make more sense, but I think we are going to need a superstar sg moving forward and Avery doesn't seem to quite have that potential.

I may totally be underrating him, though. If we had a Gasol / Cousins / Drummond at the center position already, then I might feel more comfortable with Bradley moving forward - especially with Crawford coming off the bench.

There is no need to trade him. No one will pay him that and if he signs an offer sheet the C's will just match.

Also, Bradley is shooting 38% from 3 and 45% overall. He is certainly having a breakout year on offense and I only expect this to improve once Rondo comes back. The troubling thing is, his defensive numbers are some of the worst of his career. I think when Rondo comes back they allow him to pressure he ball more and he becomes worthy of four year $24 MM deal.

Is a Gordon for Bradley swap possible

Bradley's such a peculiar player because of his tweener size, and still-uncertain offensive capabilities. I can see him being a great fit on some rosters and with certain types of players, but not on others.

So, I don't see the logic in making a big commitment to him before we get the more important pieces of our roster sorted out.

hmm 4/24 was what i figured he was worth going into the season. i would have gone as high as 4/26 since i expected his FG% to go up since he simply has to good of form to keep shooting poorly. today i might go as high as 4/29. i find it difficult to see him at 4/32, although on a contract that goes down per season instead of up i could live with it ie 9.5/8/7.5/7

im thinking hes going to be dealt at the deadline instead thought.

I'd wait for the draft before we did anything.  If we end up drafting where I think we will, there might be a decent SG or combo guard (Semaj, Garry Harris, James Young) but there won't be any Centers.  If we can trade some combination of Bradley + Pierce Exception + ATL pick + future pick(s) + an expiring for a legit center, we could have:

Rondo
James Young
Green
Sully
Legit Center (Asik, one of the Gasols, Monroe)

I'm not exactly sure how the trade would work, but this draft could at the very least make Bradley redundant and he could help us upgrade at the 5 in the meantime

Then we'd have a legit bench, too.

I think that Bradley should be able to get a full MLE contract from someone, so it makes sense that he shouldn't sign an extension unless he gets significantly more than that.  In Bradley's shoes, I'd probably also want to wait and see about the direction of the franchise.

I would be willing to go over the MLE to retain Bradley, but in terms of salary cap maneuvers, I don't think it made sense to extend him unless he was willing to sign a contract that started out at less than his cap hold for next season ($6.3m).

Yikes.

I don't think I'd go over $5mill or so for Avery.
