Philadelphia 76ers sign J.J. Redick to one-year deal

Latest news

    J.J. Redick is joining the Philadelphia 76ers on a one-year deal worth $23 million, according to a published report.

    Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN first reported the deal and Redick, 33, confirmed the signing on his Twitter account Saturday, writing “Trust the process” — a reference to the 76ers’ rebuilding slogan.

    “It’s where I wanted to be,” Redick told ESPN about the signing.

    The veteran sharpshooter was enticed by the prospect of playing with Philadelphia’s young talent and in coach Brett Brown’s system, per Wojnarowski.

    Redick recently relocated his home to the East Coast after spending the past four seasons with the Los Angeles Clippers, averaging 15.8 points and shooting 44.0 percent from 3-point range.

    The former Duke standout played his first six-plus seasons with the Orlando Magic from 2006-07 to 2012-13 before being traded to the Milwaukee Bucks. He signed as a free agent with the Clippers the following season.

    Redick has averaged 11.9 points in 690 games over 11 NBA seasons.
