The Celtics have eagerly waited for Avery Bradley to physically mature as well as mentally develop. He appears ready for a breakthrough season after averaging 14.9 points last season, although he missed 22 games with an ankle injury.

Having spent an injury-free summer working out and feeling rewarded by the Celtics’ surprising long-term investment, Bradley said he is determined to live up to expectations.

“I’m motivated to be the best teammate I can be,” he said. “One thing I want to improve this year is I want to get my teammates involved a little bit more [by passing the ball]. I know that’s something I can get better at, especially because the game’s slowing down for me. I’m willing to do whatever it takes.”
