The Sixers are going to go hard after J.J. Redick.
A favorite destination for J.J. Redick in free agency might have emerged this weekend.
The Philadelphia 76ers were rumored to be a potential suitor for the Los Angeles Clippers’ sharpshooter prior to trading for the No. 1 overall pick.
After making the trade, the likelihood of Philly going hard after Redick has probably gone up.
Philadelphia will have its point guard in Markelle Fultz, so there’s no need to pursue max free agent Kyle Lowry anymore. But the 76ers will still have a lot of cap space and a need for an elite shooter in Redick.
Before trading for No. 1 pick, were rumblings amongst league execs Sixers would be aggressive JJ Redick suitors in FA. Imagine that spikes.

If Redick is searching for a big deal and is willing to leave Los Angeles, Philadelphia seems like the probable destination.
