I wrote earlier in the month that point guard Avery Bradley left the team in order to be with his family following the death of his mother.
A sad story, but something everybody goes through in life. But now that Rajon Rondo may not be ready until December, Bradley could be in position to become the teams starting point guard until Rondo makes his return to the starting lineup.
Ainge thought that Bradley could miss the start of training camp but not appears to be ready to get back to business. Bradley only shot 40 percent from the field and only averaged 2.1 assists and 1.4 turnovers last season with 29 minutes per game.
Now when it comes to Sullinger, Ainge expects him to attend training camp although he could be charged with domestic assault. He’s one of the three handfuls of athletes who have gotten themselves in trouble with the law this year.
Prosecutors intend to pursue domestic assault charges against the Celtics forward even though the person who accused him wants to drop the case.
I would assume they’re looking to make an example out of Jared Sullinger.
