Los Angeles Clippers guard J.J. Redick will be an unrestricted free agent and is drawing interest from New York, Brooklyn and Philadelphia, according to a podcast from The Vertical.
Redick is a 6-foot-4 shooting guard who averaged 15 points as a starter with the Clippers last season. He turns 34 years old in June. There is a chance he returns to the Clippers for another run next to Chris Paul and Blake Griffin — but there’s a chance he could be moved in a sign-and-trade as well.
NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski reported the news on Redick. Per NetsDaily:
Woj said Philly would appear to be in the lead for the Duke legend.“Redick is a guy who at least in the short term who give them a guy who comes in and start to space the floor a little bit and gives them the reason why they wanted Manu Ginobili last year… they wanted Manu to come in and be a mentor, be a veteran.
Redick of course recently purchased a $4 million condo in Brooklyn’s DUMBO neighborhood. Earlier this week, Jeremy Lin said he’s been working out with his Nets teammates and Redick, making it seem that Redick has been working out at HSS Training Center.
Woj said Redick could fill the veterans void for the Nets.
It will be interesting to see which direction both the Clippers and Redick, and all those said to be interested, ultimately decide to take.
