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

Redick appeared to confirm the signing by tweeting the 76ers' slogan "Trust the Process" shortly after 4 p.m.

Free agent guard JJ Redick has reached agreement on a one-year, $23 million contract with the Philadelphia 76ers, league sources told ESPN. This marks the second Clippers starter lost in just a few days after the team traded point guard Chris Paul to the Rockets. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because nothing can become finalized until the NBA's summer moratorium is lifted on Thursday.

On a team full of youngsters, Redick will instantly jump in as a veteran mentor.

Redick had interest from other clubs, including Minnesota, but couldn't get the Wolves to totally engage in moves toward a deal. Millsap, 32, spent his first seven seasons in Utah and past four with the Atlanta Hawks. 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. Redick is also a career 89 percent shooter from the foul line. Redick averaged 15 points and made 42.9 percent of his three-pointers last season. Redick played last season for about $7.4 million.
