In response to Fierce34's comment:
Think about it, Jared Sullinger is still 21 years old, Olynyk and Pressey are 22 years old, Vitor and Jordan Crawford are 25 years old, and Avery Bradley is 23 years old.
The question is, is Courtney Lee part of the future plans?
Remember, Lee will get 5.5m, on average, next season and the season after that.
So is Lee worth 5.5m per year just to play 17 minutes per game?
Bradley may leave.
According to Synergy Sports data, Bradley is averaging 1.112 points per play over the past eight games (119 points on 107 possessions). To offer some perspective, of players with at least 350 total offensive possessions finished this season, LeBron James ranks tops in the NBA at 1.127 points per play overall. If Bradley maintained his recent production, he'd rank second in the NBA.
Now normally I'd say that is to small a sample size, but since you are Mr. "we're 6 and 2 withoult KO" I figured you'd accept that.
