News about the Jimmy Butler trade has left Avery Bradley in mystery about the off-season plans of his club, Boston Celtics. When reached out for a comment, Dannie Ainge, the Celtics president of basketball operations expressed that he never had the chance to discuss Butler with the Chicago Bulls prior to the draft. Butler left the Bulls for the Minnesota Timberwolves at a mediocre fee that Ainge could have surpassed. On Monday, Bradley expressed his uncertainty about what will transpire at their basketball camp at Brandeis. Betting on basketball games will still seem challenging even after the loss of Butler to the Timberwolves.

With such unforeseen occurrences, it is imperative for Ainge to skip Bradley, Isaiah Thomas and Marcus Smart and instead trade some backcourt players first. By next summer, all these players will hit free agency, which makes Bradley contented about his future. He vehemently expressed that he is focusing on playing basketball rather than worrying about trades. Jayson Tatum landed a place with the Celtics after the team chose him with their No. 3 overall pick. Bradley showed his confidence in Danny, whom he believes would step up to decide shrewdly, while he prepares to play the best for the team.

Bradley joined the Celtics as a rookie when he was only 19 years old and was led by Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. Since no other Celtic has such a resume, draft pick Jayson Tatum should take a leaf from the 26-year-old point guard. Bradley said that he will commit himself to helping Tatum develop a humble and optimistic mentality to improve his game unceasingly. Bradley emphasized that Jayson Tatum must exude a high level of humility to create room for learning new things, which he was certain the small forward has that mentality. He also applauded the rest of the players and the coaching staff who will ensure everything flows smoothly.

When it comes to his game plan this summer, Bradley said he will sharpen his finishing skills around the basket, especially his floaters. Among other drills, he chose floaters because he believes an improvement in this part of my game will help in making commendable plays for our team, including making baskets and rebounding. Furthermore, adding these options to his game would make it difficult for opponents to guard him, he said.

The Celtics usually display a more defensive type of play combined with basic defensive skills on the offensive end. Bradly even mentioned big names like LeBron James and Steph Curry, who everyone looks up to for these drills. Even if the team prefers doing the boring stuff, he believes it helps the kids develop a strong foundation for other advanced drills, which many of them enjoy.

When commenting about the camp, Bradley expressed the importance of working hard, while mingling with the kids. The point guard sees it as a second home where he can enjoy every moment while improving his game. The team had their first camp in Trinidad and Tobago, but they converged in Boston, which is fun and nice because of the many familiar faces. He concluded by saying that giving back to the community is the most important factor for all their camps.
