Avery Bradley (MEM, PG/SG) - Week 20 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-team leagues

OWNED IN: 22% of Leagues

ANALYSIS: Avery Bradley was really struggling with the Los Angeles Clippers, but he has gotten a second wind with the Memphis Grizzlies. Bradley, who was in the midst of his worst season since his rookie campaign with the Celtics, has been a pleasant surprise since coming over in a trade deadline deal for JaMychal Green and Garrett Temple.

The 6-foot-2 combo guard has shot the ball well during his short tenure with the Grizz, making at least 50 percent of his shots from the floor in three of his four outings with the team. He also has been more of a distributor, as well as more active on the defensive end during this stretch. Bradley has scored in double-figures in each of his last three games after turning in a 17-point performance in Friday's loss to the Clippers. Overall, the ninth-year vet is averaging 18.3 points along with 2.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.8 three-pointers, and 1.3 steals while with Memphis.

While the 28-year-old will not continue the torrid shooting pace that he is currently on, there is some good news. Bradley has been aggressive on the offensive end and his usage is at the highest since he was with the Pistons at the beginning of the 2017-18 campaign. He is also knocking down his mid-range and three-point shot attempts at surprisingly high levels and should be able to get open looks with Mike Conley's ability to get into the lane and willingness to find the open man.

With Memphis struggling this year and Kyle Anderson still out as a result of injury, Bradley should continue to get all the run he wants. Plus, he will likely be the team's secondary scoring option for the remainder of the year. So, fantasy owners in need of scoring and three-point shooting should pick him up.
