The Los Angeles Lakers started hostilities on Sunday by bringing in Dennis Schröder of the Thunder. A deal that will only be validated once the draft has passed. But Californians lost Danny Green in the exchange. Now they need to find another fullback who can do the job.
Especially that Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is also free and Avery Bradley could become so if he declined his option on his last year of contract. And the main contenders for the title have every intention of nabbing their most valuable players from the Lakers. According to Chris Haynes, Bradley is precisely followed closely by several teams.
The Golden State Warriors and the Milwaukee Bucks – decidedly – would notably be in the ranks. Logic given the profile of the man. If he was not in the bubble, the veteran Lakers is a very valuable back. Mainly thanks to his defense. A real plague, hard on the man, able to slow down several types of attackers despite his size (1.88 m).
He’s also a more than correct three-point shooter. 8 points and 36% behind the arc last year. With a $ 5 million option, Avery Bradley can arguably be looking for an equivalent contract this winter. Everything will ultimately depend on whether he prefers to stay with the Lakers or join another contender.
