Redick spent his past four seasons with the Clippers of Los Angeles and now could also aim to parlay the one-year contract into a multiyear deal over the course of next summer.
Similarly, Redick had formerly had talks about a two-year deal with the Brooklyn Nets and also a longer-term deal with the Timberwolves from Minnesota.
All of these is a good sign for the Sixers, who now have the cap space and have bagged a shooter they needed, as Redick can space the floor between the likes of Markelle Fultz and Ben Simmons.
The Sixers locker room is also something that is a great place for players like Redick, who has been relentless in maintaining a great body state after some heavy workloads during his time with the Dukes.
His success with his college team is something that set the path for him to take his career forth and his college stats speak for themselves.
