On Why The Redick Deal Was Good for All Concerned

I have seen at least one article arguing that JJ Redick is not worth the $23 million that the Sixers will pay him to play in Philly next season on a one-year deal. I strongly disagree. Jonathan Tjarks lays out the reasons why the deal makes sense for all concerned.

Here are the main points

  • The Sixers have the money to burn
  • The amount they are paying is not out of line with current NBA standards
  • Redick is the perfect floor spacer for Simmons, Fultz and Embiid – He is an outside threat without the ball in his hands
  • Redick is a vet on a team that is overloaded with heavy acne cream users

This will be the most exciting Sixers team thta we have seen in decades – perhaps since the old Doctor J year when Moses Malone came to town. Errrr … does anyone remember that group except me? Can’t wait for th enew year!
