This isn’t good news for Bradley. His injury hardly appears to be serious, but group workouts are exactly the kind of setting that would showcase Avery’s skills. A look at Bradley’s stats — on whichever level you choose, from counting statistics to more complicated metrics — won’t reveal him to be a lottery-worthy NBA prospect. He has a decent shooting stroke, but he’s neither a terribly efficient scorer or playmaker.
Instead, the things about Bradley’s game that are most likely to entice NBA scouts and GMs are attributes that would be in full view during a 3-on-3 or 5-on-5 workout. Avery’s pro potential is perhaps clearest when he’s picking up an opposing guard full-court, cutting through the lane at full speed, or jumping a passing lane.
Those are obviously still things that will jump out on video, and Bradley’s video resume from his year at Texas will no doubt persuade someone to take him in the first round. The question is where he’ll go in the first, and that’s the kind of thing that could have been altered by an impressive workout with this team or that one.
