Share this story

The Miami Heat are off to a slow start but point guard Avery Bradley is putting up solid numbers in his first season with the team. An NBA Champion as a member of the Lakers with LeBron James and Anthony Davis last year, Bradley is averaging 10.8 points, while shooting 50.0 percent from 3-point range in 23.5 minutes over six games.

Avery Bradley signed a one-year, $5,635,000 contract with the Miami Heat in November, including $5,635,000 guaranteed. According to Spotrac, the deal has an annual average salary of $5,635,000. In 2020-1, Bradley will earn a base salary of $5,635,000, while carrying a cap hit of $5,635,000 and a dead cap value of $5,635,000. Contract Notes: 2021 Club Option. Bradley had one of his best games with the Heat on January 1, scoring 15 points on 5 of 8 shooting, including 2 of 4 from beyond the arc in a 93-83 road loss against the Mavericks.

Miami has a potent roster with Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo, Tyler Herro, Goran Dragic, Duncan Robinson, Andre Iguodala and Kendrick Nunn as key cogs and the Avery Bradley addition was a good pickup.’s Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson recently asked Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra about Avery Bradley’s contribution to the team:

Avery is a guy that can play in ANY system. As long as it’s a contending team, he fits. He’s a really good basketball player, he’s a winner and a two-way player. A LEGIT two-way player.”
