Pistons willing to go into tax for Avery Bradley
The Detroit Pistons are willing to go into the luxury tax to retain guard Avery Bradley, per head coach Stan Van Gundy.
As Detroit's coach and President of Basketball Operations, you have to think that Van Gundy is entirely in tune with what ownership is looking to do moving forward. Assuming that's the case, the Pistons would likely offer Bradley a max deal in free agency next season. Such a deal would presumably put the Pistons over the projected tax line ($123 million) if they were to retain all their current assets.
In 2016-17, Bradley averaged a career-high 16.3 points per game on 46.3% shooting and 39% from deep. His -1.4 nERD represented the third-best season of his career but ranked 133rd of all NBA guards a year ago.
