Top NBA Free Agents Available After JJ Redick’s Retirement

NBA Analysis Network

There was some surprising news in the NBA today, as sharpshooter JJ Redick is stepping away from the game and retiring. He announced by sharing a video on his social media account.

The 37-year old Redick spent his 15-year career with six different franchises. He played parts of seven seasons with the Orlando Magic, four seasons with the Los Angeles Clippers, two with the Philadelphia 76ers, parts of two with the New Orleans Pelicans, and cameos with the Milwaukee Bucks and Dallas Mavericks.

The Duke product is one of the best shooters the NBA has ever seen. He is one of only three players in NBA history to make at least 2,000 3-pointers at a 40 percent clip and 2,000 free throws at an 89 percent clip. The other two are Stephen Curry and Ray Allen.

There were rumors throughout the offseason that Redick would eventually join a contending team. He wanted to remain close to his family in Brooklyn, so the Brooklyn Nets were a logical choice.

The Philadelphia 76ers, New York Knicks, and Los Angeles Lakers were also reportedly interested in signing him.
