Restricted free agent guard Avery Bradley has received calls from the Sixers since free agency started, a source told Marc J. Spears of Yahoo.

The move to shooting guard has worked out well for Bradley last season, posting career highs of 14.6 points, 3.8 rebounds and 39.5 percent from the 3-point line, but expect the Celtics to match almost any offer.  Bradley wasn't a good shooter when he entered the league, but has turned it around to become a pretty consistent NBA scorer.

One thing that makes sense here is Bradley is a very good defender.

His defensive intensity shows and makes it seem like he wants to be the best perimeter defender in the league and at times it looks like he could be.  The Sixers could definitely use that type of play on the perimeter playing next to Michael Carter-Williams.

Bradley has never made it through a full NBA season, only making it through 60-games last season.  He missed 22 games this season due to right ankle and Achilles problems, and it will be interesting to see how he's valued in restricted free agency this summer.
