Inks one-year contract with 76ers

In a seven-game series loss to the Utah Jazz Redick averaged just 9.1 points and shot just 9-of-26 from 3 while being bullied and outplayed by Joe Ingles, who was cut by the Clippers in training camp two years earlier.

He will now start next to Fultz this fall.

J.J. Redick has agreed to sign a one-year deal with the Philadelphia 76ers.

Appearing on SportsCenter on Saturday morning (h/t NBC Sports' Michael Gallagher), ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski said Redick is bound for a new home and is expected to have three serious suitors.

"It's where I wanted to be", Redick told ESPN in a text message.

This deal works for both sides because not only will the Sixers be able to maintain future financial flexibility with this one-year deal, but J.J. Redick will also be able to cash-in perhaps for one more big contract next summer. Redick averaged 15 points and made 42.9 percent of his three-pointers last season. He spent six-plus seasons with the Magic, then was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Sixers' backcourt of the future appears to be set with Simmons and Fultz, but Redick is the potentially the ideal complementary player who can thrive on the court with either of them.
