J.J. Redick has reportedly made his free agency decision. He will not be heading back to the Philadelphia 76ers.

The sharpshooter will reportedly be heading to New Orleans.

The Pelicans, who drafted Zion Williamson at No. 1 overall, have agreed to a two-year deal with Redick.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski had the details.

"Free agent guard JJ Redick has agreed to a two-year, $26.5M deal to join the New Orleans Pelicans, league sources tell ESPN," he reports.

This is a tough loss for Philadelphia, which currently lacks shooting surrounding Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons.

The Sixers have two big free agents in Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris, though it's unclear where they will be signing.

Stay tuned.
