According to Chris Forsberg of ESPN.com, Tacoma native, Avery Bradley will re-sign with the Boston Celtics Wednesday. The Boston Herald, who first reported the agreement, the free agent point guard will receive $32 million over four years.

Forsberg reports Bradley said at his Boston-based basketball camp on Monday, “I wante to be here. And I let [the Celtics] know that. When the time comes, we’ll just see what happens, and see if we come to an agreement.”

Forsberg continues, “Bradley is coming off a solid 2013-14 season in which he averaged a career-high 14.9 points to go along with 3.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.1 steals over 30.9 minutes per game in 60 appearances.”

The 6 foot 2 guard attended Bellarmine Preparatory School in Tacoma before transferring to Findlay College Prep, in Nevada, for his senior season. He led Wolverine to the National High School Basketball championship in 2009.

Lummi Nation done talking about proposed Coal Terminal

In this photo taken Oct. 23, 2012, a dilapidated structure is seen jutting out into the Strait of Georgia along the beach just south of the location of a proposed coal exporting terminal in Ferndale, Wash., just north of Bellingham, Wash. In the distance behind are an existing aluminum plant and oil refinery. The progressive college town of Bellingham is at the center of one of the fiercest environmental debates in the region: should the Northwest become a hub for exporting U.S. coal to Asia? A proposal to build one of as many as five coal terminals here has divided the town, pitting union and businesses that welcome jobs against environmentalists who worry about coal dust and greenhouse gas emissions. A trade group is running TV ads touting the projects, while numerous cities such as Seattle and Portland are opposing coal trains through their communities.

The tribe says it sent the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers its final letter on the matter and now expects the corps to deny permits for the project.
