Avery Bradley signed a non-guaranteed contract with the Los Angeles Lakers after being cut by the Golden State Warriors.
Despite these circumstances, the 31-year-old point guard started 25 out of 30 games that he played for the Lakers this season. He is averaging 6.4 points, 2.5 rebounds and 0.7 assists in 23.9 minutes per game this year.
Lakers head coach Frank Vogel praised Bradley when asked about him by the media. “He’s done a great job for us all year,” he said after the Minnesota game. “A difficult circumstance for him bouncing around early in the season.
“He’s a part of what our culture has been the last couple of years. He started with us two years ago. We just talked about a minute ago having two-way players. He sets a great tone for us on the defensive side of the ball and he’s really brought a lot on the offensive side as well.”
