NBA free agency rumors: Avery Bradley signing with Lakers, agent says

Avery Bradley is heading back to Los Angeles, but with a different team.

The free-agent guard plans to sign a two-year, $9.7 million contract with the Lakers on Monday once he clears waivers, Bradley’s agent, Bill Duffy, told ESPN.

The deal will include a second-year buyout option.

Bradley, 28, was waived by the Grizzlies Saturday to make him a free agent. He started the season with the Clippers, but was traded in February to the Grizzlies for JaMychal Green and Garrett Temple.

The latest Lakers signing will boost their bench further after the team added Danny Green and re-signed Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

He will also join newcomers Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins, both of whom signed with Los Angeles this summer.

While with the Grizzlies, Bradley averaged 16.1 points and 4.0 assists per game.
