Sixers ink JJ Redick to one-year deal

The news was initially broken by Redick, who tweeted out a phrase that has become a rallying cry for the franchise.

In the National Basketball Association these days, that only means one thing.

Redick and the 76ers agreed to a one-year contract worth $23 million on Saturday, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Sixers would have to shell out money to get the restricted free agents in order to avoid the Pistons and Wizards, respectively, from matching the contract offers. Chris Paul was traded to the Houston Rockets.

Wherever he lands, Redick should immediately slide into a role as his team's most efficient long-range marksman. Redick is also a career 89 percent shooter from the foul line. Millsap, 32, spent his first seven seasons in Utah and past four with the Atlanta Hawks.

Since Redick entered the league, only five players - Stephen Curry, J.R. Smith, Kyle Korver, Klay Thompson and Jason Terry - have made more 3-pointers than the former Duke sharpshooter. The maximum contract, which can not be signed until the NBA's moratorium is lifted on July 6, will pay Griffin $173 million over five season. During that span with the Los Angeles Clippers, he also shot at a remarkable 44 percent from three-point range.
