BOSTON, MA – The Boston Celtics announced today that they have assigned guard Avery Bradley to the Maine Red Claws of the NBA Development League. Bradley is the team’s first assignment to the Development League this season.
Bradley, a 6’2” guard, has appeared in 14 games for the Celtics this season averaging 1.1 points in 4.7 minutes per game. The 19th overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft recorded a season-high four points and a steal against the Sacramento Kings on January 12.
The kid needs work and with Rondo healthy and Delonte coming back in a few weeks… might as well get it in Maine. He's certainly got the skills, I think, to stick around in this league. I don't know how good a player he'll become, but I think he can find a spot as a solid player and maybe a good back-up for Rondo in the coming years.
