But dealing him gives Boston room under the salary cap to sign All-Star free agent forward Gordon Hayward to a four-year, $128 million maximum contract.

With Caldwell-Pope now on his way out of the Motor City, the Pistons are expected to extend a long-term offer to make Bradley a part of the team's core for years to come. But they signed guard Langston Galloway to a three-year, $21 million contract and acquired Bradley, one of the top two-way guards in the National Basketball Association, from the Boston Celtics for forward Marcus Morris.

The Detroit Pistons are renouncing the rights to restricted free-agent guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, turning him into the marketplace's No. 1 unrestricted free agent, league sources told ESPN. KCP may have been known as one of the team's best defensive players, but he can't boast Bradley's accomplishment as a two-time NBA All-Defensive Team selection.

Caldwell-Pope is coming off averaging 13.8 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 2.0 three-pointers per game in his fourth National Basketball Association season and could see an expanded offensive role in 2017-18, depending on who he ends up signing with. Join the Detroit Jock City team!

The Pistons were put in an unusual situation when they were able to land Avery Bradley in a trade with the Celtics while already hard capped to the contract given to Langston Galloway. If not, they gain cap flexibility they wouldn't have if they were locked into a deal with Caldwell-Pope.
