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.



"There plan is to be aggressive and to be big game hunting," Wojnarowski said on ESPN. "They're not ready to go out and load up, but next summer they might be." Wojnarowski added that the Sixers were a team that Redick really identified with and pretty much targeted from the outset of free agency, adding that he loved the idea of playing for Brett Brown and is a fan of the city of Philadelphia.

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.
