On this day in history, Avery was traded; Olynyk and Knight were signed; and Barnett and Simmons were born


On this day in Boston Celtics history, veteran combo guard Avery Bradley was traded to the Detroit Pistons in 2017 for power forward Marcus Morris Sr. as part of the team’s effort to clear salary space following the signing of Utah Jazz star Gordon Hayward.

The Celtics selected Avery, a 6-foot-3, 180-pound native of Tacoma, Washington, with the 19th overall choice in the 2010 NBA draft out of the University of Texas. While coming up with the older core of the 2008 title squad, the former Longhorn immediately established himself as one of the league’s top man-to-man defenders.

In total, the Texas native spent seven seasons with the organization, averaging 12.1 points, 3.1 assists, and 1.7 rebounds per contest.
