JJ Redick Rumors: 76ers, Timberwolves, Nets Interested in SG

02 July 2017

But the one-year contract gives Philadelphia plenty of payroll flexibility as it continues to build the team.

The newest ex-Los Angeles Clipper is shooting guard JJ Redick.

On Saturday, Redick tweeted, "Trust the process", a nod to former executive Sam Hinkie's mantra about the Sixers slow but deliberate rebuild. After building up a talented young core with the likes of Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid and rookie Markelle Fultz, the Philadelphia 76ers have reportedly added a top-end free agent. Redick was the Clippers' third-leading scorer behind Blake Griffin and Chris Paul, averaging 15 points on 44.5 percent shooting in 2016-17.

Redick was drafted in 2006 at No. 11 overall out of Duke by the Orlando Magic.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Friday called the outrage over the request "mostly a political stunt". In California, the state's Democratic secretary of state Alex Padilla said he would not comply.

The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor first reported the Sixers and Nets meant to make a "hard push" for Redick, and it's not hard to see why. In fact, I actually didn't like the idea of them pursuing Redick, because I feared that the veteran guard would command at least a three-year deal.

Instead, the Sixers were able to get him to sign off on a short-term deal by taking advantage of their wealth of cap space and overpaying him for one season, and the team will now get the best possible situation because of it.

Redick has averaged 11.9 points in 690 games over 11 National Basketball Association seasons.

Free agent signings can't become official until Thursday.
