The Lakers nab a player from the Warriors just before facing them!
While the Lakers and the Warriors will cross swords to open the season on the night of Tuesday to Wednesday, the franchise of Los Angeles has just stolen a player from that of the Bay! What annoy Steph Curry and Draymond Green …
The market never really stops in the NBA, and here’s more proof. While we thought the Lakers fixed and their roster fully composed, GM Rob Pelinka took advantage of a combination of circumstances to recover an unforeseen veteran in the workforce in the person of Avery Bradley, already passed through the city of angels two seasons ago.
Bradley was part of the 2019-20 championship Lakers and the 11-year veteran returns to fill the team’s open roster spot. https://t.co/Tuq8QNqLUT

The Los Angeles Lakers signed Avery Bradley after his cut, sources inform The Athletic.
Barely cut from the Warriors, Avery Bradley bounces back to the Lakers
Bradley was a member of the 2019-20 championship squad, and the 11-year NBA veteran returns to fill the final spot in the Lakers roster.
Absent from the bubble for personal reasons, Bradley must necessarily have a taste of unfinished business, and he hopes to live the adventure from start to finish with Lebron james and co this time around.
Where the story is rather funny, is when we know that the guard had spent the preseason with the Warriors, who cut him just a few dozen hours ago! A decision that angered Stephen Curry and Draymond Green, not very happy to see a seasoned veteran not being retained in the squad.
We imagine that the two leaders of the Golden State locker room will be even more annoyed and annoyed by learning that Bradley directly put his bags a little further in California, among the rivals that are the Lakers. A little extra spice before a meeting that promises to be already hot to resume the season on the night of Tuesday to Wednesday …
The Angelinos are adding a new veteran anyway – one more! – to their squad, and are more armed than ever to dominate the West. The most superstitious fans will also be satisfied to see Bradley, like Dwight Howard, both of the famous 2020 epic, make a big comeback in LA.
Steph Curry and Draymond Green have something to think about: after being cut against their advice, Avery Bradley signs with the Lakers in the hours that follow. A nice move from the Angelino front office!
