Veteran shooting guard JJ Redick is one of the top outside shooters on the free agent market this summer. He has spent the last two seasons in Philadelphia.

While the 35-year-old is sure to entice several teams, particularly those planning to contend in 2019-20, a new report indicates Redick wants to re-up in the City of Brotherly Love.

ABC's Jeff Skversky reported this morning that Redick has shown "major" interest in returning to the Sixers. Skversky adds Redick apparently desires to retire with Philly.

Redick has previously signed one-year deals with Philly in early July each of the last two years.

This past season, Redick averaged a career-best 18.1 points per game, which eclipsed his previous high of 17.1, which he set with Philly in 2017-18.

A career 41 percent three-point shooter, Redick provided a badly-needed outside threat alongside big man Joel Embiid and three-point averse Ben Simmons.

Philly recorded a 51-31 record in 2018-19, falling to the eventual champion Toronto Raptors in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
