The Los Angeles Lakers are continuing to fill out their roster after acquiring Anthony Davis.
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Lakers will sign veteran shooting guard Avery Bradley to a two-year deal worth nearly $10 million.
Once guard Avery Bradley clears waivers today, he plans to sign a two-year, $9.7M deal with the Los Angeles Lakers, his agent Bill Duffy of @BDA_Sports tells ESPN. Bradley will have a player option on the second season.

Bradley gives the Lakers a needed boost defensively. He is known as a great perimeter defender, and was selected to All-Defensive teams in 2013 and 2016.
After several seasons with the Celtics, Bradley played for multiple teams, most recently the Memphis Grizzlies. He averaged 10 points in 63 games last season, while battling injuries the last few seasons.
If Bradley can come back fully healthy for the Lakers, he can be a great asset off the bench. Bradley, Quinn Cook, Jared Dudley, DeMarcus Cousins and others can be a solid bench while LeBron James and Davis are off the court.
