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.
