Los Angeles Clippers Lose J.J Redick To Philadelphia 76ers

2 min read

Another blow to the Los Angeles Clippers. After realizing that they were going to lose Chris Paul to free agency and trading him as a result, another starter is now leaving the Clippers. JJ Redick according to sources have agreed in principal to a one year deal worth $23 million.

This is a huge blow for the Clippers as they will lose the outside shooting and toughness that JJ Redick brought to the team. One of the reasons that Redick cited for joining the Sixers was based on their youth and potential to grow as an Eastern conference power house.

Where does this leave the Clippers?

Blake Griffin has not officially re-signed as yet but the Clippers have now lost their entire backcourt in free agency. With Paul and Redick gone, they’ll now have to integrate new talent into their system. Rebuilding their backcourt with Lou Williams and Patrick Beverley is a start, but without disrespecting the talent of those two players, it’s near impossible to fill the void left by a marksman such as JJ Redick and an incredible passer like Chris Paul.

Doc Rivers, the Coach and President of basketball operations for the Los Angeles Clippers has a tall task ahead of him with rebuilding this team. Being known in the past as a “player’s coach” should help him land a few players in free agency. There have been recent rumors stating that there has been favoritism towards his son Austin Rivers. If rumors are true, it appears he may have lost the respect of players across the league.
