Avery bradley

From Tacoma, Washington, was one of the most highly touted basketball players in the country. From his grade school days at Findlay Prep as one of the Nation’s top recruits to his 1- year stop at the University of Texas, one thing has remained constant, “I will always focus on working hard, bringing energy and competing at a very high level, doing anything I can to help my team win”.

In his 7th season with the Detroit Pistons, Avery is one of the NBA’s best defenders and truly welcomes the challenge of competing against the best guards in the league every night. Avery’s work ethic and consistent energy has made the 26 year old a key piece of the Pistons organization. With a passion to give back through the game that has given so much to him, Avery has created the Bradley Sports Group, an organization focused on the enhancement of youth through education and basketball skills camps. The Bradley Sports Group will serve as a source for youth wellness, community engagement and moral development.
