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 on Saturday to make him a free agent. He started the 2018-19 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, among other newcomers, Anthony Davis, acquired in a trade, and DeMarcus Cousins, who signed with Los Angeles.
While with the Grizzlies, Bradley averaged 16.1 points and 4.0 assists per game.
