The 2018-19 campaign marked Bradley's ninth year in the league. Bradley has played just 164 games over the last three seasons due to a variety of injuries. He's played for three teams -- the Pistons, Clippers and Grizzlies -- over the last two years. After some coasting with the Clippers, he enjoyed newfound success with the Grizzlies after being traded to the team at the trade deadline last season. In 14 appearances with Memphis, Bradley averaged 16.1 points, 4.0 assists, 3.1 rebounds and 1.0 steals. He also shot 38.4 percent from downtown. It was an excellent way to bounce back and end the season on a high note. His best game of the season was Feb. 2 against the Kings. Bradley racked up 33 points on 21 shots while notching six rebounds, six assists and one steal in 38 minutes. Overall during the 2018-19 campaign, Bradley compiled five games with at least 20 points, 15 games with at least five rebounds and 11 games with at least five assists. On the defensive side of the ball, he racked up eight games with at least two steals and 14 games with one or more blocks.2017
The 2017-18 campaign was one of transition for Bradley. After playing his entire career with the Celtics, he was traded to Detroit before the start of the season. With the Pistons, Bradley played in 40 games -- all as a starter. However, he missed seven contests in the middle of the season with a hip and groin injury and was traded to the Clippers a few weeks after returning to the court. Bradley played only six games with Los Angeles before he suffered another injury. This time, he required surgery and was lost for the remainder of the season. Despite the changing scenery and unfortunate injuries, Bradley managed to post numbers in line with his career norms. He finished the campaign with per-game averages of 14.3 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists. He also made 1.6 three-pointers per contest and hit 36.9 percent of his attempts from beyond the arc. He scored 20 or more points 12 times during the season, topped by a 28-point, five-assist effort for Detroit on Nov. 15 in which he made 6-of-10 three-point attempts.2016
Bradley continued to evolve in his seventh NBA campaign, starting all 55 games in which he played and averaging 33.4 minutes per contest for the second straight season. Despite missing 27 games with a variety of injuries, the 6-foot-2 guard posted the highest per-game scoring average of his career (16.3) and blossomed as a rebounder. Bradley's average of 6.1 rebounds per game was nearly two better than his previous career high. The expanded repertoire helped him notch 10 double-doubles on the season, eight more than the amount he had posted in his first six seasons combined. One such outing was a Nov. 16 victory over Dallas in which Bradley scored 18 points and set a career high with 13 boards. The University of Texas product also improved as a three-point shooter, averaging a career-best 2.0 treys per contest while shooting 39.0 percent from deep -- his best mark in three seasons. In a victory over the Hornets on Oct. 29, Bradley set a career high with eight three-pointers en route to a season-high 31 points. His steady play throughout the season helped Boston go 53-29 and earn the top playoff seed in the Eastern Conference. The Celtics advanced past the first round for the first time since 2012, ultimately falling in the Eastern Conference Finals. In 18 postseason contests, Bradley posted per-game averages of 16.7 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.3 steals. He enjoyed a number of memorable playoff moments, including a game-winning three-pointer with less than a second remaining on the clock in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals against Cleveland.2015
Bradley's sixth NBA season saw him establish a number of career highs, including minutes per game (33.4). He played 76 games during the campaign, starting 72 of them. Other career bests included per-game averages of 15.2 points and 1.9 three-pointers. Bradley's shooting percentage (44.7) was his highest since his sophomore season, and he converted 36.1 percent of his attempts from deep. On the other side of the court, he built upon his reputation as a tough defender, averaging a career-best 1.5 steals per contest, ranking 23rd in the league. Bradley was rewarded for his defensive ability with his first selection to the All-NBA Defensive First Team. He twice scored 27 points in a game during the season, including a performance against the Nets on Nov. 22 in which he made a career-high seven three-pointers. He also notched four games of four steals, one of which was a 27-point, three-rebound performance in a win against Denver on Jan. 27. For the second straight season, Boston qualified for the postseason, finishing with a 48-34 record. Bradley scored 18 points in the opening game of the Celtics' first-round matchup against Atlanta but injured his hamstring in the fourth quarter. He was unable to play for the remainder of the series, and Boston ultimately fell to the Hawks.2014
The 2014-15 campaign was important for Bradley as he maintained a full season of relatively good health while establishing himself as one of the Celtics' most reliable players on both ends of the court. The 6-foot-2 guard set career-highs by playing 77 games and averaging 31.5 minutes during the campaign. He posted per-game averages of 13.9 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.8 assists while continuing to build his reputation as a solid defender. Bradley also connected on a career-best 1.6 three-pointers per contest and made 35.2 percent of his attempts from deep. The University of Texas product notched his second career double-double in a win over Philadelphia on March 16, scoring 20 points while grabbing 10 rebounds and dishing out six assists. He scored a career-high 32 points versus Dallas on Nov. 3, making 13-of-22 shots from the field, including 4-of-6 three-pointers. He collected another career high with six steals in a victory over Phoenix on Feb. 23. With Bradley leading the team in points and minutes played, the Celtics finished with a 40-42 record and qualified for the playoffs. In the team's first-round series against Cleveland, Bradley posted per-game averages of 12.2 points and 3.8 rebounds in four games. He scored 16 points and grabbed five rebounds in the series finale, but it was not enough to stop LeBron James and the Cavaliers from advancing.2013
Avery Bradley broke out in his fourth NBA season, starting 58 of the 60 games in which he played and averaging a career-best 30.9 minutes per contest for the Boston Celtics.

On the season, Bradley posted per-game averages of 9.2 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.1 assists -- all career highs. On the defensive end of the court, his 1.3 steals and 0.4 blocks per game were also the best marks of his young career. Despite missing over 30 games, Bradley's defensive prowess earned him a spot on the All-NBA Defensive Second Team. Bradley was also a starter for all six games of the Celtics' first-round playoff series against the Knicks. In those contests, he averaged 6.7 points and 1.8 steals per contest.2011
