RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2016-17

Bradley averaged a career-best 15.2 points per game last season while earning First-Team All-Defense honors for the first time. The 25-year-old shot 44.7 percent from the floor -- his best mark since 2011-12 -- and converted 36.1 percent of his three-point attempts, right on par with his career average. While he provides only nominal production in terms of assists and rebounds, Bradley ranked among the top 25 players in the league in steals last season, averaging a career-high 1.5 per game. Boston improved its already-deep roster this offseason, but the high-profile additions of Al Horford and Jaylen Brown won't impact Bradley's standing. Bradley is expected to open as the starting shooting guard, and he'll compete with another strong defender, Marcus Smart, for court time. Bradley topped 33 minutes per game for the first time in his career last season, but that number doesn't figure to climb much higher in 2016-17, particularly if Smart improves as a jump shooter.

2015-16

Bradley played 77 games in 2014-15, a career high for the oft-injured shooting guard. Unfortunately, the more consistent playing time did not necessarily convert into better per-game stats. Bradley finished the year with slight dips in points per game (14.9 to 13.9) and field goal shooting (44 to 43 percent), though his three-pointers increased from 1.3 to 1.6 per game. Of current Celtics, Bradley lead the team with 32 minutes played per game last year. Yet despite the departure of Rajon Rondo, Bradley faces stiffer competition for minutes this upcoming season. 2014 first-round pick Marcus Smart and 2015 first rounders Terry Rozier and R.J. Hunter all need playing time to develop. Plus, the Celtics desperately need the scoring of sparkplug Isaiah Thomas off the bench. Finally, Evan Turner proved last year that he can effectively play both backcourt positions. All these factors, as well as Bradley's injury history, point towards him seeing fewer minutes in 2015-16, his sixth in the NBA. Bradley's defensive intensity is still his best strength. Coach Brad Stevens will continue to mix and match lineups, relying on Bradley and Smart to shut down top flight point guards. Bradley's defense will help the Celtics, but his low assist figures (1.8 per game) and mediocre shooting rank him as bench fodder for standard league fantasy teams.

2014-15

Bradley battled through injuries for a second consecutive season, playing 60 games last season following a 2012-13 season when he played just 50 games. He plays hard, so it's fair at this point to wonder about his style of play leading to future injuries. The Celtics, however, are less concerned, as they signed Bradley to a four-year, $32 million deal. Known for his elite on-ball defense – head coach Brad Stevens feels Bradley will be integral to the defensive posture he wants his team to establish – the shooting guard showed an expanded offensive game in 2013-14, taking nearly 14 shots per game. He averaged a career-high 14.9 points on 44-percent shooting (40 percent beyond the arc) with 3.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.1 steals, and 0.2 blocks in 31 minutes per game. If he maintains his offense and continues to play good defense, the price tag won't be a hindrance. Whether or not he continues on an upward trajectory offensively is the real question. While his offense improved, Bradley is not what you'd call a weapon with the ball in his hands. He's not adept at setting up others, nor does he drive often. Many of his near-the-rim touches are the result of baseline cuts where he finishes on a dump-off pass. He'll be Boston's starting shooting guard, and it'll be interesting to see if he can diversify his offensive repertoire.

2013-14

Bradley led the league last year in defensive highlights per game. He plays fierce perimeter defense, which makes up for his inability to create his own shot. Hopefully Bradley can stay healthy this year, after battling shoulder and collarbone issues over the past two years. Bradley is frankly more valuable in real basketball than fantasy hoops.

2012-13

Bradley burst onto the fantasy scene last year in the wake of Allen's ankle injury, averaging 15.1 points and 1.2 steals while shooting 54.5 percent from downtown in March. Bradley, however, will begin this season sidelined by offseason shoulder surgery. When Bradley is back and healthy, expect him to take full control of the backup point guard role and even pressure Lee for time at shooting guard.

2011-12

Rookies in a Doc Rivers-led system rarely, if ever, play, and such was the case with Bradley last year. His eventual true value is as a perimeter defender and three-point shooter, but it may be another year or two before he can display that potential.

2010-11

Bradley has oodles of potential, but is at least two to three years from realizing it. He was an excellent three-point shooter at Texas last year, and may have been the best perimeter defender in all of college basketball. Still, Celtics coach Doc Rivers is loath to give rookies much playing time, so don’t expect much, if anything, out of Bradley this year.
