PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – JJ Redick is taking his talents to New Orleans. Redick agreed with to a two-year, $26.5 million contract with the Pelicans, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. But it’s not all bad news on the Sixers’ front.
The 35-year-old Redick averaged 17.6 points and shot 40.7% from three-point range during his two seasons with the Sixers.
Last season, Redick set a career high, averaging 18.1 points in 76 games.
While the Sixers lost Redick, they did reportedly re-sign Tobias Harris and Mike Scott on Sunday.
Harris, according to Wojnarowski, agreed to a five-year, $180 million max contract with the Sixers. Scott inked a two-year, $9.8 million contract, per The Athletic’s Shams Charania.
Sixers general manager Elton Brand wasn’t done with Harris and Scott.
The Sixers weren’t able to retain Jimmy Butler but essentially turned Butler into five-time All-Star Al Horford and guard Josh Richardson.
The Sixers, per Wojnarowski, will sign Horford to a four-year, $109 million contract and acquired Richardson in a sign-and-trade that sent Butler to Miami.
The Sixers are also reportedly discussing a max contract extension with Ben Simmons, according to Wojnarowski.
NBA free agency opened Sunday at 6 p.m.
