Avery Bradley joins a series of others who have been added to the Lakers roster in the last few days like JaVale McGee, Quinn Cook, Rajon Rondo, and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.
After missing out on Kawhi Leonard, the Lakers are scrambling to add capable players around Lebron James and Anthony Davis. With a mixture of players who were on the Lakers last year and quality guards like Cook and Bradley, the roster is starting to take more shape.
Bradley owns career averages of 12.0 points (.436 FG%, .364 3P%), 3.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.0 steal in 522 games (449 starts) for the Celtics, Pistons, Clippers and Grizzlies.
In 63 games for the Clippers and Grizzlies last season, Bradley notched 9.9 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 30.2 minutes. He played in 39 career playoff games for Boston, notching 12.2 points, 3.1 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.2 steals in 32.1 minutes.
