When you’re dealing in the world of stocks, buying low and selling high has always been the goal of any good investor. You select a security that you believe is under-valued, you buy it at a discount, and then you sell it when you think that investment has reached its peak.
If I were Danny Ainge, I would strongly consider trading Avery Bradley. Not now – Bradley’s shoulder problems make moving him nearly impossible, and it will take another season of solid play to convince the market that Bradley is worth taking a chance on. But if I’m Ainge, I’m hoping Bradley comes back strong by mid-season, and that he plays an integral role in a run to a championship. And that’s when I consider making my move. I would trade Bradley something the Celtics clearly need – a big. It may necessitate a package deal to land a talented front court player, but Bradley could prove to be an enticing part of a future trade package.
