Sixers re-signing Redick, have money to spend

J.J. Redick is returning to the 76ers after agreeing to a one-year contract.

Veteran shooting guard J.J. Redick has agreed to a one-year deal to remain with the Philadelphia 76ers, according to ESPN.

The contract will pay Redick somewhere in the $12-$13 million range, per the report.

Redick, 34, averaged a career-best 17 points last season. He shot 46 percent on 3-pointers, freeing himself for open looks while playing alongside Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons.

As Philly.com noted, “With Redick returning, the Sixers will have around $13 million in cap space to lure free agents.”

He has also spent time with the Orlando Magic, Milwaukee Bucks and Los Angeles Clippers.

The Sixers advanced to the Eastern Conference semifinals before losing to the Boston Celtics.
