Report: J.J. Redick turns down multiple offers, opts for one-year deal with Sixers instead

Sixers NBA

NBA free agency is less than 24 hours old and Bryan Colangelo appears to have already landed the veteran shooter his team lacked. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Sixers have signed shooting guard J.J. Redick to a one-year deal worth $23 million.

After previous reports suggested that Redick was looking to sign a multi-year deal, the Duke product apparently turned down longer deals – including one in Brooklyn, where Redick bought a $4.25 million penthouse just last summer – in order to sign on with the Sixers for one season:

And although the deal can't be made official for a few more days, it seems all but done.

Redick was a free agent this summer after spending the last four seasons with the Clippers. Originally drafted by the Magic with the 11th-overall pick in 2006, the 33-year-old shooting guard and Duke product has averaged 11.9 points per game and has shot 41.5 percent from three in his 11-year career.

With Redick in the fold, the Sixers roster now stands at 14 players, meaning they have one more spot to fill. They also have plenty of money to use.

Here's a look at how their roster currently breaks down by position:

NBA rosters expand to 20 during the offseason, so Colangelo should have plenty of ways he can go when it come to filling out his roster.
