Last season was a rough one for Avery Bradley.

The fit with the Pistons’ offense was not smooth, he struggled with turnovers so Stan Van Gundy shipped him out to the Clippers as part of the Blake Griffin trade. Los Angeles was supposed to be a chance for Bradley to correct course, but injuries cut his time on the court in L.A. short.

The Clippers must have seen something they liked, they are bringing him back, something is broken by Shams Charania of The Vertical at Yahoo Sports.

Bradley will split time at the two guard spot with Lou Williams (Bradley will probably start, Williams was the Sixth Man of the Year). He could play a little three in a small-ball lineup.

If he gets healthy and back to form, this is a quality signing at a fair price for the Clippers. Los Angeles is not going to be tanking, this is still a solid lineup from Patrick Beverley at the point through Marcin Gortat at the five. Not sure they make the playoffs in a brutal West, but it’s a good lineup.
