With the Boston Celtics set to officially announce the signing of big-time free agent Gordon Hayward in the very near future, the team was expected to make some moves to clear cap space in order to take on the hefty new salary headed Hayward's way.

when they shipped veteran 2-guard and lineup stalwart Avery Bradley to the Detroit Pistons, along with a future second-round pick. In exchange for Bradley and the pick, the C's received forward Marcus Morris.

Bradley, who entered the league as a defensive minded guard and has become one of the league's best back court defenders, has spent the last couple of seasons as one of Boston's biggest scoring threats as well.

Last season, Bradley averaged a career-high 16.3 points per game, though he played in just 55 games because of multiple injuries. Bradley has dealt with health concerns throughout his career.

Morris comes to the Celtics with a little less money owed to him than Bradley and the ability to play a few different positions in the front court. While his abilities as a player are a bit less exciting than Bradley's, he did average 14 points per game last season and has a strong track record when it comes to defending Celtics foe Lebron James.
