It appears that Pelicans guard JJ Redick could be on the move soon. According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, three teams have emerged as potential suitors for the 36-year-old guard.
As Feb. 2 looms as the NBA’s deadline for teams to aggregate acquired players in a trade later, the New Orleans Pelicans have focused on the Philadelphia 76ers, Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics as potential trade destinations for JJ Redick, sources tell The Athletic’s Shams Charania.
Redick, who was selected five spots after Brandon Roy in the 2006 NBA Draft, has averaged 7.9 points per game in 16 outings with the Pelicans this season. Through his 14 seasons in the NBA, Redick has posted a career three-point percentage of 41.4 percent.
Outside of the Redick rumors, Charania also broke the news on Iman Shumpert’s new deal with the Nets. Shumpert, who appeared in 13 games with Brooklyn last year, will add depth to Nets’ re-tooled roster.
