Lakers Stole a Proven Veteran Stephen Curry Desperately Wanted the Warriors to Keep

The Los Angeles Lakers pulled yet another move to change the roster. It was a big move for the team and many would agree that the veteran is the right player to join the team. The Lakers just stole a great veteran and it was a big loss for the Golden State Warriors. Yes, Avery Bradley is one of the players Stephen Curry wanted on his team. Guess what… He is a Laker now.

The Warriors waived Bradley and kept 14 players on their roster.

“I’ve always called him a bulldog. Everybody asks, ‘who are some of the toughest defenders you’ve had?’ and he’s the first guy that comes to mind,” Curry said. “Just because he’s relentless. Physical; Quick. He’s got good awareness of not just on-ball defense, but team defense as well. He’s shown not only the skill set, but the commitment to it.”

The Lakers stole the veteran for a reason, and the Warriors lost a valuable player

Curry did his best to keep Bradley on his roster. Bradley was great, but the front office made a decision.

The Lakers had an open spot on the roster and getting Bradley was quite a surprise. Many thought that general manager Rob Pelinka would keep this spot open.

In the summer of 2019, Bradley got a two-year deal worth $9.7 million. He was good but didn’t join his teammates in Orlando due to his health concerns.

Beal joined the Miami Heat and then played with the Houston Rockets. He was averaging 6.4 points, 2.1 rebounds, and 1.7 assists while shooting 37.4%.

The Lakers had to make some adjustments as they deal with too many injuries at the moment. Some of the players had to undergo surgery while others will miss significant time on the floor. Trevor Ariza, Kendrick Nunn, and a few others will be missing time.

Frank Vogel has to make a decision on the minutes his players will get. LeBron is playing somewhere between 34 and 36. What about the rest of the team? It’s a long season, and we can’t wait to see them in real action.
