National Basketball Association roundup
July 7 (The Sports Xchange) - The Boston Celtics traded guard Avery Bradley to the Detroit Pistons for forward Marcus Morris, the team announced Friday.
The deal creates the salary-cap space the Celtics needed to sign All-Star free agent forward Gordon Hayward to a four-year, $128 million maximum contract, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. The Celtics also will send a 2019 second-round pick to the Pistons.
ESPN reported Bogdanovic received a two-year, $21 million contract. The agreement came shortly after the Washington Wizards renounced Bogdanovic's rights, making him an unrestricted free agent. Bogdanovic averaged a career-best 13.7 points last season while splitting time with the Brooklyn Nets and Washington.
Lowry's contract is a reported three-year, $100 million deal, and Ibaka's is for three years and worth $65 million.
The Memphis Grizzlies signed free-agent guards Tyreke Evans and Ben McLemore.
Evans reportedly agreed on a one-year, $3.3 million deal. McLemore reportedly landed a two-year deal worth $10.7 million.
McRoberts, 30, averaged 4.9 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 22 games with Miami last season. He joined the Heat as a free agent on July 14, 2014.
Hammons, 24, was selected with the 46th overall pick of the Mavericks in the 2016 draft. He averaged 2.2 points and 1.6 rebounds over 22 games during his rookie season.
