Avery Bradley might be a free agent.

The Lakers guard revealed to ESPN’s Shams Charania on Thursday that he is evaluating” whether he will decline his $5 million player option and enter free agency, which is set to begin on Nov. 20.

According to Bleacher Report’s Timothy Rapp, Bradley, who signed a two-year, $9.7 million deal with the Lakers in 2019, had a player option on his second year.

This past season, Bradley decided to opt out of the 2019-20 season restart in Orlando, Florida — telling ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski that his decision was based off of his family’s health, specifically his oldest son, Liam, who has “has a history of struggling to recover from respiratory illnesses.”

In addition to potentially opting out of his player option ahead of next season, set to start on Dec. 22, Bradley also told Charania that he will be changing representation and will sign with agent Charles Briscoe.
