JJ Redick Signs with 76ers

J.J. Redick, the Los Angeles Clippers free-agent shooting guard who was a target of numerous teams, reportedly made a decision to go with the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN first reported the deal and Redick, 33, confirmed the signing on his Twitter account Saturday, writing "Trust the process" - a reference to the 76ers' rebuilding slogan. Redick is looking to nail down a new contract somewhere other than with the L.A. Clippers and he is getting plenty of interest from different teams.

The 6-foot-4 outside-shooting specialist became the Clippers starting shooting guard after arriving via trade in the summer of 2013 and averaged 15.8 points in four seasons while shooting 44 percent from 3.

Redick has been to the playoffs every year in the league. Originally drafted 11th overall by Orlando, the Duke product has spent the last four years of his career with the Clippers.

But Philadelphia won out, with Redick telling ESPN: "It's where I wanted to be". He signed as a free agent with the Clippers the following season.

The Sixers, Timberwolves, and Nets all finished in the bottom half of the league in three-point percentage last season and adding Redick to the mix would nearly certainly improve any of those squads' offense from beyond the arc.
