Lakers’ Bradley opts out, set to enter free agency

Lakers guard Avery Bradley drives to the basket vs. the Pelicans.

Los Angeles Lakers guard Avery Bradley is declining the $5 million player option on his contract and will enter unrestricted free agency, per Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.

The free agency period begins Friday at 6 p.m. EST.

Bradley sat out the NBA restart on the Disney campus, where the Lakers won their first championship in a decade. He still started in 44 of his 49 appearances on the season, compiling averages of 8.6 points and 2.3 rebounds.

Bradley recently signed with a new agent in Charles Briscoe and is expected to receive plenty of interest.
