Lakers Offered Jordan Clarkson For Avery Bradley

He sat out the Pistons' loss Sunday to the Cleveland Cavaliers. That future may or may not include shooting guard Avery Bradley, who is scheduled to be a free agent at the conclusion of this season.

He was a free agent in the offseason, and met with team owner Steve Ballmer, president and coach Doc Rivers, special consultant Jerry West and several players at Staples Center in a celebration of his career.

The Pistons have made the veteran shooting guard available in trade talks, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, but suitors for his services likely won't snag Bradley without giving up a big asset.

This season, he is averaging 22.6 points, 7.9 rebounds and 5.4 assists in 33 games for the 25-24 Clippers, who are in ninth place in the Western Conference, 14 1/2 games behind the Golden State Warriors. He started out well, like the team, but has struggled with his shot lately (30-of-84, 35.7 percent; including 6-of-26 from 3-point range, 23.1 percent).

Tears Achilles, out for season
An obviously upset Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry said the team has just started playing good basketball. Pelicans center DeMarcus Cousins has initially been diagnosed with a torn Achilles', ending his season.

As far as specifics go, not much was given.

Bradley, however, has seen a noticeable drop in his defensive stats per 100 possessions. It will take a significant financial commitment to retain Bradley, but is it worth the cost if the team's long-term outlook remains mediocre at best?

Prior to being traded to Detroit, Bradley spent seven seasons in Boston after the franchise drafted him 19th overall in the 2010 Draft.

They could have up to $32 million in cap space if they were to rid themselves of non-guaranteed contracts, but could also be at $23 million if those contracts - like Alan Williams and Tyler Ulis - were to stay. Bradley is now making $8.8 million in the final year of his contract. The Clippers signed him to a five-year, $173 million deal in late June and meant to rebuild around the 28-year-old.
