Report: JJ Redick returning to 76ers on one-year deal

By Jesse Reed

The Philadelphia 76ers are getting sharpshooter JJ Redick back for at least one more season, as ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports he’s signing a one-year deal worth between $12-13 million.

Redick was a huge reason why Philly was so dynamic last year, and he loved his first season playing with this team.

He provided both leadership (here’s a great example of that) and a spark on the floor on both ends of the court. Of course, in particular his ability to drain open threes was a critical aspect of the team’s offensive attack.

Playing in 70 games, he averaged 17.1  points, 2.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 0.5 steals per game, shooting 46 percent from the floor and 42 percent from behind the arc.
