The Sixers landed their top target, signing former Clippers sharp-shooter J.J. Redick to a one-year, $23 million deal, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com.
"It's where I wanted to be," Redick said via a tweet from Wojnarowski.
And the Sixers are glad to have him.
Redick likes the idea of playing with a young team that is on the cusp of making the eastern conference playoffs, with a young core, he is the veteran piece that could put them over-the-top. After cutting ties with veteran Gerald Henderson earlier in the day, the Sixers didn't wait long to replace him, Redick could step in and start right away and gives them a veteran presence to go along with Jerryd Bayless.
