|Though first rounders were reportedly offered in exchange for Avery Bradley, Danny Ainge remained averse to trading his two-guard.|
"Avery Bradley is a ravenous defender with legit 3-point range, but he shoots too many long 2s early in the shot clock and needs a dynamic off-the-dribble guy to create shots for him. Ainge loves Bradley and has already answered the question of whether he thinks the 24-year-old will be in Boston when the Celtics rise again: Multiple teams offered low first-round picks and expiring contracts for Bradley at the trade deadline, and Ainge flatly refused, per several league sources."
If Ainge swiftly refused a late first and expiring contract, it looks like a team would really have to overpay to acquire Bradley via trade. Evidently, Ainge truly values Bradley and sees him as part of the game plan going forward--for now.
A look at the 24-year-old's season to season per-game numbers:
