JJ Redick Signs with 76ers

NBA Draft: 76ers' smart trade picks could see them go from bottom-dwellers to contenders

Prior to signing J.J. Redick to a one-year deal worth $23 million on Saturday, the Sixers had approximately $46.5 million in cap space as National Basketball Association free agency began, according to RealGM.

Roughly a week and a half after the Philadelphia 76ers executed a trade with the Boston Celtics for the No. 1 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft - which turned into Markelle Fultz - the Sixers have reportedly come to an agreement with J.J. Redick.

"It's where I wanted to be", Redick told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Wolves, Nets and 76ers were known to be interested in Redick, who spent the past four seasons with the Los Angeles Clippers. While Redick's contract with the Sixers will only go for one year, he's in for a massive payday.

The state's Coordinating Council for Economic Development also has approved job development credits for the project. The high-tech plant will employ engineers and a variety of technical and non-technical workers, the company said .

He shot 43% from three last season. Redick was the Clippers' third-leading scorer behind Blake Griffin and Chris Paul, averaging 15 points on 44.5 percent shooting in 2016-17. He began his National Basketball Association career with the Orlando Magic who eventually traded him to the Milwaukee Bucks in the past year of his contract.

He averaged a career-high 18.1 points and 3.7 assists this past season and also grabbed 7.7 rebounds.

The Sixers' backcourt of the future appears to be set with Simmons and Fultz, but Redick is the potentially the flawless complementary player who can thrive on the court with either of them.
