Should be able to replace his playoff production fairly easily

He lost his job to Caruso in the bubble and he didn't sound like he even gave a crap about winning a championship. I was never a big fan of his and won't miss him now.

Dude i liked him. However going to the Miami should be meaningless for us as i don't expect them to come out of the East again.

Man I didn't know that they win a ring with a full of retards in the team. The guy sign the same contract that could be here and he is going to play much less.

We really do need to sign KCP now.
Guard depth was a strength for us last year.

I thought AB was a solid contributor throughout the regular season.
This is not a disastrous loss but we do need to keep KCP now.

WAS a big fan until he decided to skip the play in tournament and ESP playoffs. Him signing elsewhere meant Pelinka losing some leverage with KCP negotiation. Not a lot of good alternatives now in case Pope signs with another team. Rob can wait and see, I hear the Knicks have some interest but how much exactly will they offer? Right now, Kent Bazemore is the only one who might be able to contribute but I'm not sure he will accept the minimum.

He didn't even play in the playoffs. I will miss him. Great energy guy.

He is fine for what he is, a defensive bulldog with mediocre offensive repertoire. We have Matthews, Caruso and THT to play at the 2 already, and Bradley can't play any other position. If we land Bazemore and Batum, we'd be solid on the wings.

Pretty good moves so far with Harrel, Dennis and Matthews. But dang we can’t afford to keep losing key players. Please lock the rest of the crew!!!

Meh. I'm ok with him going. Great ball pressure gaurd but that's really it. His offense will be easy to replace.

It's not a big loss. Lakers easily won a championship without him.

Bradley’s analytics have never supported his biggest fans’ feelings about him. His ball pressure on defense earns him a lot of fans, but years of data suggest his overall defensive impact is pretty average.

Meanwhile, offensively he’s really struggled the last three seasons … with the ironic exception being the 14 games we had him in Memphis in 2019. Bradley’s 3-point shooting is solid enough (36.4 percent), but he’s not a high-volume launcher. He’s a good enough midrange shooter that it’s actually a pretty acceptable shot, but he rarely gets to the rim and virtually never draws fouls, and doesn’t create anything for others.

Unfortunate, he woulda been a good bench piece for us. Although im kinda confused, how much PT is he gonna see in MIA since he's not a real PG. He's basically PG sized, with SG game. MIA already has Herro, Nunn, and Robinson, so i guess they'll just rely on Butler more for playmaking.

MIA has had a nice offseason value wise. Bradley is very tradeable and Harkless for BAE is a damn good deal. I was hoping to grab Harkless for the BAE here.
