In the modern NBA, 3-point shooters are a hot commodity. So when a player like JJ Redick becomes available on the free agent market, the offers come pouring in.
Redick, who has played the last four seasons with the Los Angeles Clippers, becomes an unrestricted free agent on July 1, and according to The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor, the sharpshooter is expected to draw serious offers from the Philadelphia 76ers and Brooklyn Nets:
Multiple league sources I've spoken to expect the Sixers and Nets to make a hard push at Redick. Were he to go to either of those teams, Redick could receive an opportunity unlike anything he's had before. He is one of the greatest 3-point shooters in league history, and is coming off a season in which he averaged a career-high six 3-point attempts per game. That's a lot of triples, but it's not enough. Even Sixers swingman Robert Covington averaged more last season, at 6.1 per game, and he shot only 33.3 percent. A gunslinger of Redick's caliber should be averaging about 8.5 treys, in the same range as Klay Thompson or Eric Gordon. Had Redick taken 8.5 3s last season and posted the same 42.9 percent clip, he would've averaged 18.2 points per game. Redick could receive those chances with the Sixers or Nets, all while living within close proximity to his home in Brooklyn.
Redick is a career 42 percent 3-point shooter and led the league with a mark of 47.5 percent in the 2015-16 season. O'Connor brings up a good point about the volume of 3s that Redick could launch with a new team, and it will be interesting to see what decision he ultimately makes.
Chris Paul and Blake Griffin are also entering free agency, so the status of the Clippers' core is in serious doubt. If Paul and Griffin do decide to re-sign, however, they're likely to do everything in their power to convince Redick to take less money to stay with the Clippers -- we saw with the DeAndre Jordan a couple offseasons ago that they're are willing to do anything short of kidnapping to keep their guys.
But if Paul and Griffin decide to leave, or if Redick simply craves a change of scenery with a larger role in the offense, the Sixers and the Nets could end up being attractive options.
