Report: Sixers land Redick on 1-year deal

J.J. Redick says he didn't want to re-sign with the Clippers.

The Philadelphia 76ers have signed Los Angeles Clippers free agent sharpshooting guard J.J. Redick, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:

Redick himself seems to have confmirmed the news:

Redick, 33, will be the presumed starter next to no. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz in the Sixers’ backcourt next season.

In 78 games (all starts) for the Clippers last season, Redick averaged 15 points per game while shooting 42.9 percent from three-point range.

In his 2015-16 campaign, Redick shot 47.5 percent from deep, the 27th-highest single season mark in NBA history.

With non-shooter Ben Simmons as the team’s primary ball-handler, an elite outside shooter like Redick looks to be the perfect fit for the 76ers. Furthermore, Redick will offer veteran guidance to a very young team. With Redick in the lineup, the Sixers appear primed to make a playoff run this season.
