Bradley, 26, is entering the final season of a four-year, $32 million deal and is set to make $8.8 million in 2017-18. Every team knew the Celtics were desperate to clear cap space and dump a player, and Bradley's contract situation didn't help Boston, seeing as he hits free agency next summer and could very well demand a max deal.
Bradley was Boston's best on-ball defender last season, a defensive menace that hounded the opponents' best guard. He provides another power forward option alongside Jae Crowder - assuming Crowder sticks around. The blockbuster trade, by Detroit standards, shakes up the imminent future of the Pistons, and not only ships out Morris, but could send Kentavious Caldwell-Pope packing.

Saudi Arabia and the UAE used it to launch what the Qatari foreign minister called an unjustified blockade. He said the demand shows "a lack of respect toward us and Qatar ".
With Gordon Hayward joining the Celtics, they need to cut some salaries, and that process has already begun. On Friday, the Celtics finally made the move that allows Hayward to sign with the team. With Jaylen Brown - last year's No. 3 pick - also in the fold, the Celtics look primed to contend for years to come, although the roster could keep changing. The Celtics will likely pay Morris and Smart less in 2018-19 than they would have paid Bradley all by himself.
Morris, 27, has spent the last two seasons in Detroit.
Marcus Morris was taken with the #14 overall pick in the 2011 National Basketball Association draft by the Houston Rockets, one slot after his brother was taken at #13 by the Phoenix Suns. He was a beacon of professionalism during the rebuilding years and pretty inarguably the best two-way player on an Eastern Conference finalist last season. He averaged 16.3 points per game for Boston this past season in an average of more than 33 minutes per game.
