After missing out on LeBron James, the Sixers moved quickly to secure Redick, and will still be left with significant cap room to fill out the roster with the required pieces.
The biggest need in Philly is shooters, so it made sense to learn that the Sixers were bringing Redick back for the 2018-19 season on another one-year deal, but this time for a much lower price. He signed last summer to a $23 million, one-year contract and provided stout 3-point shooting and needed veteran presence on a young team.
It turns out, Redick signing with the 76ers was more than just a direction change for Philadelphia.
National Basketball Association insider Adrian Wojnarowski first reported the news. Redick is the latest big-name free agent to go off the board within the first two days.
Above all else, Redick is a victor, with his teams having reached the playoffs in each of his 12 seasons in the league. Philadelphia needs consistent floor spacing around Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, and Redick has now shot 42% or better from three-point range in four straight years.
