The Process is playing out right in front of our eyes. 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.
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Sixers have signed veteran guard J.J. Redick to a one-year contract that will pay him an absurd $23 million in cold hard cash.

Redick, 33, has averaged 15-plus points in each of the past four seasons. During that span with the Los Angeles Clippers, he also shot at a remarkable 44 percent from three-point range.
Redick will likely round out a Sixers starting-five that will also include Fultz in the backcourt with Simmons, Dario Saric and Joel Embiid in the frontcourt. That’s a potential playoff team right there.
