DETROIT (AP):

The Detroit Pistons have acquired guard Avery Bradley from the Boston Celtics for forward Marcus Morris.

Detroit also receives a 2019 second-round draft pick. The Pistons announced the trade yesterday.

Bradley's arrival gives the Pistons a replacement for Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who had been a restricted free agent. Detroit has renounced the rights to Caldwell-Pope.

Bradley averaged 16.3 points per game last season for the Celtics, but they are moving on from him as they add All-Star forward Gordon Hayward. Morris averaged 14 points for Detroit.
