NBA officials and sources confirmed the Los Angeles Clippers and Avery Bradley have agreed to a two-year deal worth $25 million. Players will be able to officially sign deals starting Friday, July 6.

Bradley was originally acquired by the Clippers back in January as part of a trade that sent Blake Griffin to the Detroit Pistons. He averaged 9.2 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.8 assists in six games played prior to a season-ending abdominal injury in February.

According to reports, $14 million of the $25 is guaranteed, with the second year being partially guaranteed. If the Clippers decide not to opt in for year two, Bradley would get $14 million for one season.

With Bradley and Patrick Beverley as the starting backcourt, watch for the Clippers to be a nightmare for the opposition’s guards. Beverley already has a reputation for being a tough on-ball defender, and Bradley — in eight seasons — has established himself as a solid two-way player capable of contributing in a myriad of ways.

Bradley has made two all-defensive teams in his career, most recently first-team in 2016.
