REPORT: Clippers, Avery Bradley agree to two-year, $25 million deal
The LA Clippers have been the lesser talked about NBA team in Los Angeles over the last couple of days after the Lakers secured star LeBron James as well as number of solid veteran role players as well like Rajon Rondo, JaVale McGee, and Lance Stephenson.
On Monday, the Clippers added stretch-power forward Mike Scott, and before the night of July 2nd came to a close, the Clippers made another move, locking up shooting guard Avery Bradley to a two-year, $25 million deal, per Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports.
The Clippers acquired Bradley, alongside forward Tobias Harris and center Boban Marjanovic, as part of a blockbuster deal that sent Blake Griffin to the Detroit Pistons back in January of 2018. He dealt with a groin injury for a large chunk of January, but appeared to be past it upon arrival to L.A. Unfortunately, he was only able to suit up for six games before the pain became too much, forcing him to miss the final two months of the season due to sports hernia surgery.
Since then, however, Bradley has been rehabbing hard, and securing a luxurious deal that’ll pay him $12.5 million annually certainly hints that the Clippers believe he’s well past the injury struggles.
Bradley averaged 14.3 points, 2.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.1 steals, and 1.6 three-pointers per game on 41.4 percent shooting from the field and 37 percent from beyond the arc.
