JJ Redick adds Sixers, Timberwolves, and Nets to possible destinations

Posted July 02, 2017

Hours after trading point guard Ricky Rubio to Utah on Friday, the Wolves reportedly reached an agreement on a three-year, $57 million contract with free agent point guard Jeff Teague.

ESPN reported Saturday afternoon that J.J. Redick has signed a one year deal with the 76ers. The sharp-shooting guard averaged 15.0 points per game while appearing in 78 contests and Redick converted 42.9 percent of his three-point attempts. Just as this news hit, Redick tweeted "Trust the process", so he is excited about his new team.

Redick, who was a Nets target, chose a team with a promising if injury-concerned core of Embiid, 2016 No. 1 pick Ben Simmons and 2017 No. 1 pick Markelle Fultz. Redick also said Philly is where he wants to be.

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.

He could have signed a contract for as many as four years, but opted to take more money up front and re-enter the free agent pool again in 2018.

The Sixers, Timberwolves, and Nets all finished in the bottom half of the league in three-point percentage last season and adding Redick to the mix would nearly certainly improve any of those squads' offense from beyond the arc.

Free agent signings can't become official until Thursday.
