What is his wingspan?


At 6-2 without shoes, with a 6-7 ¼ wingspan, Avery Bradley might just be able to get by at the shooting guard position, which appears to be a more natural fit for him. Numerous NBA executives pointed out how impressed they were with him this weekend. His stock appears to be rising considerably at the moment. Adding strength to his 180-pound frame looks like a big priority for the freshman at the moment. - Source: http://www.draftexpress.com/profile/Avery-Bradley-5285/ ©DraftExpress

Why not? McCollum for example is 6'3" - 6'4". Eric Gordan. Many shortish SG's.

I wonder what the average height of SGs are these days.
How many 2s can actually take advantage of shorter 2s these days?

I don't like this signing at all.

For the last time, Iggy ain’t getting bought out lol. The best chance we have of signing a buyout candidate right now is Korver

Bradley will start and will play well in this system IMO

How do you know?

Too valuable to a contender to get bought out. A team like the Rockets or Blazers will match salary and attach picks to get him


Houston would need to give up Gordon to get Iggy.

Portland would need to trade Bazemore.

Both aren’t going to make those trades.

The one team that could trade for him is Utah.

Speaking of Porland, they've gotten better too. With Hezonja, Hood and Nassir Little for SF, not sure if they need Iggy. Looks like they need a PF and a back-up PG more.

Lillard / ??
McCollum / Bazemore
Hezonja / Hood / Little
Collins / ??
Whiteside / Nurkic

If we still need an SF down the line, perhaps, we could interest them in trade of one of Rondo/Caruso for one of Hezonja/Hood?

Hopefully no more injuries for AB going forward, we need his toughness and he can definitely provide that when he's fully healthy.

In LG lore, there can never be another bulldog at the one...there is only one Marcus Banks.

Marcus Banks, Jonathan Bender, and that 19th pick are the trinity of the mid-2000s LG faith.

“... Avery Bradley was the biggest pickup of the off-season for the Lakers (... you take out Anthony Davis) ... people forget how elite of a defensive guard Avery Bradley is ... Pat Bev is a great a defensive player but he’s not Avery Bradley ...”

- Jared Dudley on The Dan Patrick Show this morning.

Dudley added that Bradley has battled injuries of late and will need to “reshow the NBA” what he once was.


That's right. Surprise the hater AB!

It's so crazy. It looks like Memphis gave the lead guard duties to AB. Must have been due to injuries or something? I wonder if the Lakers would allow him to run some PNR action.

I stopped when he said 15 out of 50 is about 45%. Guy is an idiot.

With the time passing by I am thinking he is actually perfect starting guard for us. Lebron will basically run the offense and Bradley is perfect for that role of PG who is not main ball handler. He can make shots and he posses high IQ. Also IMO he is capable of defending all guards out there.

Everyone gushes over AB defense. Doesn’t gamble too much and just harasses whoever he’s guarding. Stays glued to their hip while chasing them around screens. I like having good defensive guards in our team. Green, Bradley and KCP. We’re going to be tough to score against with Davis behind them.

I agree. He's not 'Green' Bradley but we've got ourselves a good defender

One thing you will notice about AB is that he is quick.
He should be able to keep in front of those burner PGs like Fox
and Lillard.
And he can shoot.
He should start at PG.
Rondo would if he was younger, but he can guide the second team.
