Not much is known about what direction the Boston Celtics are going after the departure of Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett prior to the 2013-14 season. The Celtics finished 25-57 during the regular season, earning the team the 6th pick in the upcoming draft and the front office may be looking for more changes with the roster as the offseason begins to continue their rebuilding effort.
Avery Bradley’s future with the team will remain up in the air as he enters restricted free agency this summer, however Bradley will be looking to stay in Boston, according to A. Sherrod Blakely of Comcast SportsNet.
And while no one knows how the Celtics and their rebuilding efforts will play out, Bradley reiterated to CSNNE.com that he wants to be part of it.
“Of course this is where I want to be,” Bradley told CSNNE.com in a phone interview on Thursday. “I’ve been in Boston for four years and I love it; I love the fans, the front office. I definitely want to be back.”
The 23 year old guard was selected by Boston with the 19th pick in the 2010 draft and has be an important role player with the Celtics through the past 4 seasons. The Celtics will have an option to issue a qualifying offer of around $3.5 million, which will give the team the ability to match any offer sheet Bradley signs.
