The Los Angeles Lakers officially announced the final piece to their roster, Avery Bradley.

On October 16, he was waived by the Golden State Warriors, along with Jordan Bell, Mychal Mulder, and Gary Payton II.

Bradley averaged 4.3 points, 1.3 rebounds, 1 assist, and 1.25 steals in 12.8 minutes over 4 preseason contests for Golden State. The guard signed with the Warriors as a free agent on September 24.

Bradley, 30, has played in 598 games with seven teams over 11 seasons and has averaged 11.5 points and 2.9 rebounds per game.

He split last season between the Miami Heat and Houston Rockets and averaged 6.4 points in 27 games (6 starts). The 1.91-meter combo guard shot just 37.4 percent from the field.

Bradley played his first seven seasons with the Boston Celtics before he began bouncing from team to team.

In July 2019, Bradley signed a two-year deal with the L.A. Lakers. However, the 2019–20 season was suspended mid-season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The campaign resumed, but Bradley opted out of playing in the restart due to family reasons. The Lakers filled his roster spot by signing J. R. Smith. Without Bradley, the Lakers won the 2020 NBA Finals.
