Bradley, 29, signed a two-year, $11.6 million contract with the Heat.
The veteran played with the Los Angeles Lakers last season, though he did not participate in the resumption of the 2019-20 campaign in the NBA bubble in Orlando, Fla.
The Lakers defeated the Heat in six games in the 2020 NBA Finals. Now, Bradley will try to help the Heat get over the hump and win a title.
Last season, the guard collected 8.6 points and 2.3 boards per game while shooting a sizzling 44.4 percent from the field. He is an amazing defender and reliable shooter.
