Avery Bradley, drafted 19th overall by the Boston Celtics in the 2010 NBA Draft, signed his rookie contract on Friday.  Terms of the deal were not disclosed.  However, as the 2010-11 rookie scale stipulates, Bradley will make a minimum $1,181,800.00 million his first year and $1,270,400.00 million his second year.  Rookies can make up to 120% of the rookie scale amount, if negotiated between player and team.  The Celtics hold options for the third and fourth year.

Bradley will not play for the Celtics summer league team, as he also underwent successful ankle surgery on Friday.  He injured his ankle June 13th during a pre-draft workout for the Oklahoma City Thunder.  Julian Benbow of the Boston Globe has more on Bradley’s signing and surgery here.
