J.J. Redick Has Decided To Re-Sign With The Sixers

The 76ers moved quickly to close on Redick's deal once LeBron James chose to join the Los Angeles Lakers.

While the Los Angeles Lakers were fumbling around in the post-LeBron signing haze, Redick appeared to be the flawless addition to the Lake Show, but as they were scurrying to lock down JaVale McGee and Lance Stephenson, Philadelphia ensured the former Duke standout was not going to call anywhere but the Wells Fargo Center home in 2018-19. The all-world shooter signed what he described as a "tricky" one-year contract before the 2017-2018 season and, in short, Redick provided exactly what the Philadelphia 76ers envisioned when adding him at a high, short-term price.

National Basketball Association insider Adrian Wojnarowski first reported the news. He signed last summer to a $23 million, one-year contract and provided stout 3-point shooting and needed veteran presence on a young team.




"Free agent guard JJ Redick will return to the Philadelphia 76ers on a 1-year deal in the $12M-to-13M range, league sources tell ESPN", he reports.

Defensively, Redick is a steady hand, with his 102.1 defensive rating ranked fifth among all Sixers, and 10th league-wide among guards who had played at least 60 games. Philadelphia needs consistent floor spacing around Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, and Redick has now shot 42% or better from three-point range in four straight years.

There was obvious incentive for both player and team to get a deal done here after how well things went for Redick and the Sixers last season.
