The Los Angeles Lakers reportedly will add another key piece to their roster. The team plans to sign veteran guard Avery Bradley to a two-year deal, according to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
Bradley will need to clear waivers before he signs the contract, which is reportedly worth $9.7 million. The second year of the deal will have a player option, according to Wojnarowski.

Bradley has earned a reputation as one of the best defensive guards in the league. His presence should help solidify the Lakers' guard rotation after a busy offseason that saw the team add Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins, Quinn Cook, Jared Dudley, Danny Green and Troy Daniels.
The 28-year-old guard spent last season with the Clippers and Grizzlies.
