Sixers re-sign Redick to 1-year deal

He signed last summer to a $23 million, one-year contract and provided stout 3-point shooting and needed veteran presence on a young team.

The 76ers moved quickly to close on Redick's deal once LeBron James chose to join the Los Angeles Lakers.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Redick will be returning to the 76ers on another one-year deal. This will be crucial for Philadelphia, after losing valuable late season additions Ersan Ilyasova and Marco Belinelli in free agency's opening 24 hours. His ability to play off the ball and shoot 3-pointers was a huge contribution to the 76ers' incredible season.

However, while a majority of reports have Jordan headed to the Texas Triangle, the Bay Area is not about to give up. Even though Dallas declined Dirk Nowitzki's player option, the Mavs plan on resigning the veteran big man.

"I think it is a mutual appreciation", Redick said "I am sure we all hope I am back."
Redick was seen as one of the best veteran shooters in the National Basketball Association looking to win now.

There was obvious incentive for both player and team to get a deal done here after how well things went for Redick and the Sixers last season. When it's all said and done, Redick will still have earned approximately $36 million over his two years in the City of Brotherly Love - not a bad going by any means.

Redick has played 12 National Basketball Association seasons, also playing for the Magic, Bucks and Clippers. But beyond James, this is an incredibly deep free agent class.
