Hello Lakers Nation.
00:00:07
Trevor Lane here senior writer for lakers nation dot com.
00:00:10
Back continuing Our series leading up to the start of N ba training camp for your Los Angeles Lakers were breaking down each player as we get closer and closer to training camp.
00:00:20
And today we're talking about Avery Bradley.
00:00:23
This is a guy the Lakers brought in.
00:00:25
I'm pretty excited about him.
00:00:27
I think he would bring Ah lot of good things to the team this year.
00:00:30
They brought him in on the room exception.
00:00:32
Just over $4 million will make almost 10 million over two years with the Lakers.
00:00:37
But before we dive into all the particulars energy drinks so energy should feel confinement.
00:00:42
7 11 g n.
00:00:43
C and amazon dot com.
00:00:45
And, of course, bet online dot e g.
00:00:48
All you have to do is head over to bed online dotty G bunch of the promo code C L N s 50 and you get a 50% welcome bonus.
00:00:57
All right.
00:00:58
So Avery Bradley Look, the Lakers signed Bradley thinking that he could come in and be a solid three and DIY type player for them again.
00:01:06
He's on that that room exception.
00:01:08
Deal to your deal with almost $10 million the second year is a player option, and we've seen the Lakers give out a lot of these deals.
00:01:16
KCP has one.
00:01:18
JaVale McGee has a deal like that where the second year of it is a player.
00:01:22
Options means if he wants to stick around and be a Laker after this season, he can only has to do is pick up that option.
00:01:29
Otherwise, if they decide they want to test the free agent market, they can go and do that as well.
00:01:33
And we know the free agent market is gonna be really, really thin next summer.
00:01:37
So it's possible that some of these guys may decide to part ways with the Lakers and move on.
00:01:41
We'll see.
00:01:42
It depends on how the season plays out for each of them, but the bottom line is, the power's gonna be in their hands.
00:01:47
The one benefit of doing that for the Lakers is you put some faith in them.
00:01:51
You are giving them that peace of mind of going.
00:01:53
Hey, I can be here for a least two seasons if I want.
00:01:57
I have that control.
00:01:58
I don't have to worry about having Thio going to go find another place to play next season, and hopefully that will help the team's chemistry.
00:02:05
Avery Bradley is a guy who has been a tremendous defender, but he's dealt with a lot of injuries, and so that's been a big thing that is bogged down his career.
00:02:13
This is a guy who has appeared on all defensive teams twice, one time on the all defensive first team.
00:02:20
He's that level of defender, one of the best in the entire n ba.
00:02:24
Well, at least when he's not playing for the Los Angeles Clippers, that's the big question here.
00:02:29
Which every Bradley are we gonna get.
00:02:31
Are we going to get the Clippers version of Avery Bradley because that guy's not good? That was not a good version of Avery Bradley Anil.
00:02:38
Or are we gonna get the Memphis Grizzlies Detroit Pistons Boston Celtics version of Avery Bradley? If you get that guy, then the Lakers have really found something here.
00:02:48
And the money they spent will be well worth it to you right now.
00:02:51
The Lakers.
00:02:52
If you're looking at the the way their rosters set up around LeBron James and Anthony Davis.
00:02:57
You don't necessarily need a true point guard.
00:03:01
You don't need a guy who is used to handling the ball the entire time and running an offense, being the sort of Steve Nash style point guard Chris Paul, anything like that.
00:03:11
What you really need is you need a guy who could do two things, play defense, hit three pointers.
00:03:15
Okay, we've talked about this before.
00:03:16
It's a Derek Fisher style point guard not gonna have the ball in his hands all the time.
00:03:21
And with that in mind, I think Avery Bradley could make a run for the starting point guard position.
00:03:27
In fact, he might even be the favorite because he could do those things because he can knock down threes.
00:03:32
He's in 36% shooter from deep on his career, and he can play.
00:03:38
So the defense now again didn't do that very well with the Los Angeles Clippers.
00:03:42
In fact, last season with the Clippers, he averaged 8.
00:03:45
2 points, 2.
00:03:47
7 boards and two assists per game in almost 30 minutes.
00:03:52
It was bad.
00:03:53
It was brutally bad.
00:03:54
But then he got traded to the Memphis Grizzlies, played 14 games with them, and this is the spark.
00:04:00
This was what you wanted to see, how to Avery Bradley.
00:04:02
And this is probably what played a big factor in the Lakers.
00:04:04
Signing him.
00:04:05
16.
00:04:06
1 points, 3.
00:04:07
1 boards, four assists, one steel per game for Avery Bradley, 38% from 3 46% from the field.
00:04:16
He looked like the Avery Bradley of old.
00:04:18
He looked like the guy who was one of the best young players in the n B A.
00:04:22
At one point, looking back to his Boston Celtics days, This looked like the guy that we've been hoping we would be seeing for a while now.
00:04:31
For whatever reason, things did not work with the Los Angeles Clippers, and the Lakers were taking the risk that whatever waas it was a Clippers thing.
00:04:40
Maybe it just wasn't fitting in the system.
00:04:42
Maybe he didn't feel comfortable.
00:04:43
Whatever it was, it was more of a being on the Clippers problem for Avery Bradley.
00:04:48
Then he's not good anymore than that type of problem.
00:04:51
And this burst with Memphis Grizzlies.
00:04:53
Hopefully, that was not just a flash in the pan.
00:04:56
Like I said, this guy could be a real contender to start with the Lakers, as long as he can place all the defense and knocked down threes.
00:05:04
Now, he's not the kind of shooter that Quinn Cook is.
00:05:06
He's not the kind of all around player that Alex Caruso is.
00:05:10
He's not gonna bring that kind of passing flare that Caruso has as a true point guard.
00:05:14
But he's the best defender of the group.
00:05:16
Winnie's at his top quality shape, whatever you want to call it.
00:05:21
And look, Avery Bradley is not big.
00:05:24
He's not a huge guy.
00:05:25
62 That's one concern.
00:05:27
Alex Caruso.
00:05:28
It's 65 Maybe you give him a little bit of an edge there, but Avery Bradley does have any 67 wingspan, and that helps to mitigate things.
00:05:35
This is a guy who can defend ones, can defend twos.
00:05:38
We've seen him switch on the threes from time, time to time, but most likely you're going to see him flop flip flop between ones and twos.
00:05:45
Now, if he doesn't wind up being the team starting point guard, if they go with the big lineup or if Captain America himself Alex Caruso wins out the rule that he be looking at would be backing up Danny Green at the two, Most likely, and then he'd be battling contagious Caldwell Pope For minutes there, we talked about K.
00:06:02
C.
00:06:03
P's inconsistency on the last show.
00:06:04
We talked about how he's been a roller coaster and how somebody might be able to come in and steal minutes away.
00:06:09
Avery Bradley kind of the same thing.
00:06:11
You don't know for sure what you're gonna get if you see the Memphis Grizzlies version of a Avery Bradley.
00:06:17
He very well could steal a minutes away from KCP at the two.
00:06:22
So something to certainly keep an eye on here as we get ready to head into training camp and then the regular season.
00:06:28
All right, guys, what do you think about Avery Bradley? Was this a good signing for the Lakers? And should he be the starter, should he be the starting point guard for the team? Even if he isn't really a pure point guard, he can still do those things.
00:06:43
The things that the Lakers need their point guard to do.
00:06:45
So should he be the starter, should he start over guys like rage on Rondo, Alex Crusoe Quinn Cook? Or should he be coming off the bench battling KCP for minutes at the two? Let me know what you think.
