JJ Redick signs with the Philadelphia 76ers

Posted July 02, 2017

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Redick and the 76ers have come to terms on a one-year deal that will pay him $23 million, a sum the 76ers can afford to dole out with the bulk of their roster still on salary-cap friendly rookie deals. The news was initially broken by Redick, who tweeted out a phrase that has become a rallying cry for the franchise.

Redick averaged 15 points per game on an impressive 43 percent shooting from three-point range.

The 33-year-old veteran joins a young, talented 76ers team that includes top three draft picks Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, Jahlil Okafor and Markelle Fultz.

While the Clippers have made the playoffs every year with Redick, they have not advanced past the second round.

The ride was stopped by an operator after word was received that there was a rider in distress, officials said. They didn't know how she'd fallen out of the ride.

Last season, the Philadelphia 76ers starting backcourt consisted of T.J. McConnell and Gerald Henderson.

Redick was linked most heavily to either Philadelphia or Brooklyn, where he has a home, although Houston and Minnesota reportedly entered the fray after adding superstars via trade, Paul for the Rockets and Jimmy Butler for Timberwolves.

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

He could have signed a contract for as many as four years, but opted to take more money up front and re-enter the free agent pool again in 2018.
