Ainge also noted that Bradley and his girlfriend welcomed their first child, Avery Bradley III, on Tuesday morning. Said Ainge: "So AB3 we’ll call him. And everybody’s doing well from what I’ve heard."
So, congratulations to Avery Bradley and his family. Unfortunately though, we can't yet congratulate him on a contract extension with the Celtics.
The Boston Celtics have until Oct. 31 to work out a contract extension with 2010 first-round pick Avery Bradley, but president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said Tuesday that nothing is imminent and that the sides will likely wait until after the season to revisit.
"We may talk in October, but most likely next summer," said Ainge.
That obviously means that Bradley will be in a contract year. The young guard has proved to be a game changer on the defensive end, but has shown some wild inconsistency on the offensive side of the ball. It's the offense in all sports that earns money. If Bradley is looking for a decent pay day he'll have to dial it back to the way he was playing at the end of 2011.
