Grizzlies waive veteran guard Bradley before guarantee date

Veteran guard Avery Bradley averaged 16.1 points in 14 games with the Grizzlies.

The Memphis Grizzlies have waived veteran shooting guard Avery Bradley, according to the NBA’s transactions tracker.

Bradley, 28, was acquired by the Grizzlies in a trade-deadline deal with the Los Angeles Clippers in February. He impressed in 14 games with the Grizzlies, 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, he is owed just $2 million of that.

He is likely to draw plenty of interest once teams begin to set their rosters for training camp.
