The ripple effect of the Avery Bradley-Marcus Morris trade

Report: Celtics May Pursue Marc Gasol From Memphis In Trade

Per Adrian Wojnarowski, the team is sending forward Marcus Morris to the Celtics in exchange for guard Avery Bradley and a second-round draft pick.

Bradley is entering the final season of a four-year contract, so it's not clear if he can be a long-term solution for Detroit. Losing the defense that Bradley provided could be tough for the coaching staff, though, as he is one of the best in the league at the position. At various times last season, Smart guarded point guards, shooting guards, small forwards and even big men like Anthony Davis, Kristaps Porzingis and Paul Millsap. He will be an unrestricted free agent next summer.

The Pistons Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and the Celtics Avery Bradley both eye a first half loose ball.

Gordon Hayward joining the Boston Celtics meant someone on the team had to go.

With a surplus of guards and a need up front, the Boston Celtics made somewhat of an inevitable move on Friday. With Jaylen Brown - last year's No. 3 pick - also in the fold, the Celtics look primed to contend for years to come, although the roster could keep changing.

Reacting on the double taxation by the state, Haasan said in a statement: "Filmmaking has been made hard deliberately". Tamil Nadu is the only state to have imposed an additional 30% entertainment tax over and above the GST for film trade.

Morris, 27, has spent the last two seasons in Detroit. If he doesn't take a lot of preparation to get up to the National Basketball Association speed, then this could be a really good Celtics team.

The Celtics are weaker on the perimeter, though Marcus Smart can handle some of Bradley's defensive responsibilities.

This past season was Bradley's best season yet. He averaged 14.0 points and 4.6 rebounds in 79 games in 2016-17.

Bradley is coming off of a career year, in which he set highs in points (16.3 per game), rebounds (6.1), assists (2.2), and shot 46.3-percent from the field and 39-percent from three.
