Free agent security guard Avery Bradley has agreed to a two-year contract with the Miami Heat. The Times has confirmed this through those with knowledge of the situation who are not empowered to speak publicly about the matter.
Bradley, who quit his deal with the Lakers who would have paid him $ 5 million the next season, is set to sign $ 11.6 million.
Bradley waived playing with the Lakers when they went to the bubble of the Wide World of Sports Complex near Orlando, Florida to end the pandemic-delayed NBA season for health reasons.
But Bradley stayed on contract with his teammates throughout the franchise's 17th championship run.
In Bradley, who turns 30 next week, the Heat gets a dogged defender who picks up his offense while playing for the Lakers.
Bradley played 49 games for the Lakers last season, averaging 8.6 points in 24 minutes while shooting 44.4% off the field, 36.4% of which from three-point range.
