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

Amir Johnson drawing interest from 3 teams in East

A couple months later, Redick was acquired by the Clippers in a sign-and-trade after agreeing to a four-year, $27.7 million deal.

Redick himself seemed to confirm the news, tweeting out "trust the process".

I believe the Jazz have a team that will give him the best chance of winning, and they are close to becoming a serious contender. Rubio was a bad three-point shooter, and Jimmy Butler and Andrew Wiggins are midrange players who can get to the rim.

"It's where I wanted to be", Redick told ESPN about the signing.

Redick, who was a Nets target, chose a team with a promising if injury-concerned core of Embiid, 2016 No. 1 pick Ben Simmons and 2017 No. 1 pick Markelle Fultz. However, as free agency approached it became increasingly clear that Redick was not in the Clippers' plans and that he was no longer interested in them.

He mistakingly labeled the United States as an energy exporter, correcting himself after checking his notes again. The industry consensus is that so far, natural gas is the driving force behind coal power plant closures.

Redick also took to Twitter to indicate he's heading to Philly. Originally drafted 11th overall by Orlando, the Duke product has spent the last four years of his career with the Clippers.

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. This past season with LA, Redick averaged 15 points per game, shooting 45% from the floor and 43% from deep.

Antetokounmpo also earned an All-Defensive Second Team nod, the first for a Buck since Alvin Robertson in 1990-1991. Gobert received just one first-place vote.

Redick, 33, was ranked No. 25 on the list of top available free agents this offseason compiled by ESPN's Kevin Pelton.
