Avery Bradley is Leaving the Lakers

NBA free agency begins on Friday, and you can add one more name to the list...Avery Bradley. According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Bradley has decided to decline his $5 million player option with the Los Angeles Lakers, making him an unrestricted free agent. 

The defensive specialist will certainly field some calls from other interested teams. Bradley can guard multiple positions and can chip-in offensively when needed. 

Last year Bradley averaged 8.6 points per game and shot the three and a 36.4% clip in 49 games last season for the Lakers.  He didn't play in Orlando's playoff bubble as he opted-out due to family concerns. 

The Warriors, Bucks Hawks, Celtics, Pelicans and Suns are expected to be interested in Bradley's 3-and-D capabilities.
