Avery Bradley wants to remain with the Los Angeles Lakers, but he is interested in a long-term deal with the team.

Bradley is expected to opt out of his current contract with LA, but only to negotiate a new deal with the Lakers, per Robert Mavri of Lakers Daily.

Bradley is a great on-ball defender and would offer decent solutions in the team. However, the Lakers have not revealed their plans yet and it is unknown if they will negotiate a new deal with Bradkey.

The versatile guard has a player option worth $5M. If he declines it, he will enter free agency this Friday, November 20.
