According to a report from Shams Charania of The Athletic, the New Orleans Pelicans are shopping the 15-year veteran JJ Redick ahead of the trade deadline.
Sources: The Pelicans are focusing on northeast teams – 76ers, Nets, Celtics – as potential trade destination for 15-year veteran JJ Redick. As recently as last year, Redick averaged 15 points per game on respectable shooting splits, so a team trading for him might not be getting the Redick we’ve seen this year.
For the Celtics, Redick’s $13M salary would fit into the TPE. This would still leave a decent chunk of the TPE left for the Celtics to use in a different trade, so it might be worth the risk if the team believes that Redick can significantly boost the offense with a strictly 3-point-oriented player off the bench.
