Bradley, a 6-foot-2 combo guard, is regarded as one of the best perimeter defenders in the league and his acquisition spells an unexpected end to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope's tenure with the Pistons.

In lineups that Morris will typically be in, his teammates will likely be Thomas, Hayward, Horford, Crowder, and Brown. That was faulty logic from the start, especially considering Brad Stevens' progressive approach to the sport and the way the Celtics play. With their depth lost and depleted, the Celtics won't really improve next year and will be, as LeBron said "top-heavy". "It may be as simple as three positions now, where you're either a ball-handler, a wing or a big".

We'll have to wait and see if more moves are coming for the Celtics. Dedmon's defensive rebounding percentage, which counts the percentage of rebounds a player pulls down while he is on the floor, was an excellent 30.6%.

That's how the Detroit Pistons reportedly traded Marcus Morris for Avery Bradley and a second-round pick.

#6 Before Hayward can officially sign a max contract with the Celtics, he must wait for them to create cap space by putting Crowder and Smart on the trade block (after Olynyk agreed on a deal with Miami Heat). Bradley, who turns 27 in November, is older than the 24-year-old Caldwell-Pope, but he's also been a better shooter from 3-point range, finishing at 39 percent last season.

Bradley, 26, an unrestricted free agent after next season.

For the Pistons, though, the peril of potentially going into the luxury tax for to retain Caldwell-Pope and not drastically alter a team that finished 37-45 last season was not a good gamble.

The other component of this trade to look at is Boston's return. If Johnson proves a major downgrade from Morris at forward, it may offset the improvement at shooting guard and leave the Pistons on the fringes of the Eastern Conference playoff race with Bradley's free agency looming. His scoring production has gradually improved over the course of his first seven National Basketball Association seasons, averaging 12.1 points and shooting better than 36 percent from three-point range.

Morris is a versatile big man on a reasonable contract. Now, the Celtics grab Morris to run with second units and they may be able to fly Yabusele over. The former first-round pick from Texas was well-liked in seven seasons there, considered one of the league's underrated players and a gritty piece to the Celtics' rise.
