He is now a Player Development Coach with the Dallas Mavericks where he spent 12 years of his NBA playing career.

After attending the University of Maryland, College Park, Brad became a professional basketball player.

He began his career as a first-round pick (15th overall) of the 1977 NBA Draft by the Los Angeles Lakers.

In 1980, Brad was picked up by the expansion Mavericks, where he has since spent his career to date.

A 6-3 guard, he holds the Mavericks' record for most consecutive three-pointers without a miss.

Brad won five straight Favorite Maverick Awards from 1982-86.

He is the Mavericks' all-time leader in games played at 883.

Brad is one of only 15 players in NBA history to play 15 NBA seasons. (961 games)

In April 1992, Brad retired as a player.
