The Philadelphia 76ers had loads of salary cap space entering NBA free agency, and they reportedly used a lot of it to acquire shooting guard JJ Redick.
Redick and the 76ers reportedly agreed to a one-year contract worth $23 million on Saturday, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Redick taking a one-year deal is surprising, but he will be paid handsomely and is able to enter free agency again next summer.
Clearly, he is a believer in what Philly is building.
Redick averaged 15 points per game for the Los Angeles Clippers last season. Most importantly, he shot an impressive 43 percent from 3-point range, which should help spread the floor and open up driving lanes for the 76ers’ offense.
The 33-year-old veteran joins a young, talented 76ers team that includes top three draft picks Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, Jahlil Okafor and Markelle Fultz.
The 76ers might not be done adding players, either.
