Welcome to today’s NBA free agency roundup:

 The Celtics had originally extended a $3.6 million qualifying offer on Monday that gave them an opportunity to match any outside offer that Bradley received when free agency opened.

Boston made Bradley a priority when free agency opened at midnight on July 1 and the two sides, who couldn’t come to an agreement on an extension before an October deadline to extend rookie pacts, moved quickly to put a deal in place.
