The Los Angeles Lakers have signed veteran guard Avery Bradley, the team announced in a news release.
The deal is for two years and $9.7 million, with a player option after the first season, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
Bradley, 28, was waived by the Memphis Grizzlies earlier in the week.
He was acquired by the Grizzlies in a trade-deadline deal with the Los Angeles Clippers in February and impressed in 14 games with Memphis, showing his usual dose of strong perimeter defense and averaging 16.1 points.
But his salary of nearly $13 million for next season was to become guaranteed Monday. By being waived before that, Bradley was owed just $2 million of that.
He joins a veteran Lakers backcourt that includes Rajon Rondo, Danny Green and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.
