The Memphis Grizzlies have unrestricted free agent Avery Bradley as one of their top free agent targets, according to Marc Stein of the New York Times.
Hearing that the Grizzlies -- who will be looking for wing upgrades with their mid-level exception -- have Avery Bradley high among their free-agent targets— Marc Stein (@TheSteinLine) June 27, 2018
Bradley split the 2017-18 campaign between the Detroit Pistons and LA Clippers, averaging 14.3 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 46 games combined with both teams. He played just six games in LA before his season was cut short due to sports hernia surgery.
When healthy, Bradley is viewed as an elite defender on the perimeter and would be a serviceable piece to the Grizzlies. Memphis was tied for the seventh-worst defense in the league last season.
Free agency opens July 1.
