Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will be shown the door by the Detroit Pistons?

Marc Gasol trade celtics gordon hayward nba

Morris was traded to Boston on Friday in exchange for Avery Bradley, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.

The Celtics, who earned the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference last season, reached the conference finals a year ago and added prized free agent Gordon Hayward, along with No. 3 pick Jayson Tatum, during the offseason. That's money the Celtics aren't likely to have, particularly after they pay Isaiah Thomas (who will also be an unrestricted free agent next season). Picked 19th overall in the 2010 draft, he developed into one of the league's best defenders, making the All-Defensive second team in 2013 and first team in 2016.

It's unclear what the plan is for Morris in Boston, but the most likely scenario is that he will come off the bench.

Smart, meanwhile, will be a restricted free agent, meaning Boston can match any offer sheet from other teams, potentially curbing his value.

Middle East crisis: Gulf media predict more sanctions on Qatar
The Egyptian foreign minister went on to say that media outlets in Qatar were guilty of "glorifying terrorist activities". Egypt is part of a quartet of Arab countries led by Saudi Arabia boycotting Qatar over alleged ties to terrorism.

Beggars can't be choosers, and while teams around the league surely want some of Boston's spare parts, no one is going to part with prime assets when they know the Celtics have no choice but to shed salary. Bradley now brings some extra scoring punch - he averaged more points than any Pistons player last season.

Assuming the Celtics were paying Thomas, Bradley had some limitations that made him more hard to keep.

England's Broad allays injury fears ahead of South Africa Test
England have managed a solitary series win against the South Africa since the Proteas' readmission to Test cricket that came in 1992.

Bradley's $8,808,989 salary this season is far less than Caldwell-Pope could get, and that matters for the Pistons, who are up against the luxury tax. Both the Boston Celtics and Detroit Pistons seem immediately pleased about these National Basketball Association trade rumors, so thus far, it is a win for both franchises.

Are the Celtics better with Avery Bradley or Marcus Morris? Morris averaged 14 points for Detroit.

10 hurt after cab strikes pedestrians in Boston
A taxi reportedly crashed into a group of pedestrians Monday afternoon, July 3, at Boston's Logan International Airport. Two law enforcement sources told CNN the incident is being treated as an accident, not an act of terrorism.

In order for that deal to make sense, Bradley would have to be a substantial upgrade on Caldwell-Pope.
