Reports surfaced on Monday that the Golden State Warriors were bringing in avery bradley for a workout. His training session also included free agents Isaiah Thomas and former Warriors’ member Quinn Cook.

By the looks of things, the Warriors’ focus is finding a backup point guard for Stephen Curry. Here are three reasons the Dubs should sign Bradley.

Avery Bradley Warriors 

Three-point threat

Bradley is a streaky shooter. During his career, he has been a 36% three-point shooter. He has shot over the 40% mark from deep once during his career. If the Warriors pick him up, his ability to hit open shots will be a significant factor. The amount of shooting the Warriors currently have on the roster means excellent spacing. It will equal clear looks at the basket, especially from the corners.

When attempting corner threes, Bradley is shooting a decent 37% for his career. During the 2019-20 season, Bradley shot 40% from deep on wide-open shot attempts. Last season, the Warriors struggled to find shooting consistency from their backup point guards. If Bradley knocks down open shots during his workout, it could land him a spot.

He’s a defensive stud

The one advantage Bradley has over the other free agents in this audition is an elite defensive ability. He made an all-defensive team twice in his career. His defense is what people love most about him. During the 2019-20 season with the Los Angeles Lakers, he held guards to 40.8 percent from the field and 26.7 percent from downtown.

Defense is more of a science and not a stat. Bradley won’t ever lead the NBA in steals, but he is constantly in your face. Anyone who plays basketball understands those are the most challenging players to score against in a game. These guys are not dirty players, but it’s hard to shake free of them.

Adding a scrappy defender that doesn’t hurt you on the offensive end could be an upgrade from last season. That’s who Bradley has been during his career. Not the most outstanding offensive player in the world, but you have to be aware of where he is. While defensively, he is a silent menace who many guards have problems finding simple scoring opportunities.

Some players just fit

Bradley has played on seven NBA teams, and he’s been the same player on each team. His ability to fit in with multiple rosters allowed him to play valuable minutes everywhere he’s played. Bradley wouldn’t play massive minutes for the Dubs, but he is someone you can trust. That’s big when you think of a backup point guard.

You can use Bradley in situational moments, or you can play him extended minutes if needed. He is always in great shape and should be prepared for whatever the Dubs can throw at him.

Bradley could be the newest addition to the Warriors. If he can prove at 30 years of age, he is still the same player, and he’s the player the Dubs need.
