JJ Redick agrees to 1-year, $23M contract with Sixers

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 33-year-old sharpshooter averaged 15.0 points per game while shooting.429 from beyond the arc for the Los Angeles Clippers. For now, that looks to be point guard Patrick Beverley and, perhaps, career sixth man Lou Williams, both acquired on Tuesday in the trade with Houston for Paul. The news was initially broken by Redick, who tweeted out a phrase that has become a rallying cry for the franchise. After building up a talented young core with the likes of Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid and rookie Markelle Fultz, the Philadelphia 76ers have reportedly added a top-end free agent.

He shot 43% from three last season.

A spokesman said police investigations were continuing to "establish whether there is any link between his death and the attack ". The attack raised fears of retaliation against Muslims after a series of deadly assaults in Britain by Islamist extremists.

But Philadelphia won out, with Redick telling ESPN: "It's where I wanted to be".

The Sixers would have to shell out money to get the restricted free agents in order to avoid the Pistons and Wizards, respectively, from matching the contract offers.

Once Paul informed the Clippers he meant to leave as a free agent if they did not trade him to Houston, the franchise accomplished its next top objective: agreeing on a new contract with All-Star power forward Blake Griffin on Friday evening. That's a potential playoff team right there.
