Per Brad Turner of the LA Times, the Clippers will meet with Avery Bradley tomorrow (July 1st) to discuss re-signing him.
Bradley is a 27 year old shooting guard who’s a tenacious on-ball defender and can hit threes. He came over to the Clippers last year as part of the Blake Griffin deal, but only played 6 games for them before getting shut down with a sports hernia. He spent the first seven years of his career with the Boston Celtics, where he was coached by Clippers’ coach Doc Rivers.

Just like the Kentavious Caldwell-Pope news, this interest in Bradley doesn’t make a ton of sense on the service. Bradley is a fine role player, but he’s an injury-prone, veteran guard, and the Clippers just drafted two guards with lottery draft picks. They don’t need any more guards, and it’s curious they appear to have an interest in them. Maybe a big deal is coming?
