JJ Redick to Sixers: How much cap space do they have left?

JJ Redick to Sixers: How much cap space do they have left?

Redick spent the last four seasons with the Los Angeles Clippers as a reliable shooter and driver.

Prior to signing J.J. Redick to a one-year deal worth $23 million on Saturday, the Sixers had approximately $46.5 million in cap space as National Basketball Association free agency began, according to RealGM.

On Saturday, Redick tweeted, "Trust the process", a nod to former executive Sam Hinkie's mantra about the Sixers slow but deliberate rebuild. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because nothing can become finalized until the NBA's summer moratorium is lifted on Thursday. Redick is looking to nail down a new contract somewhere other than with the L.A. Clippers and he is getting plenty of interest from different teams. Chris Paul was traded to the Houston Rockets. Redick played last season for about $7.4 million.

MVP Westbrook soaks up plaudits from stars
At the end of the day, however, it was Durant's former teammate who was recognized as the most valuable the league had to offer. Kendrick Perkins revealed that Durant sent a message to Westbrook after he broke the record of Peterson.

The 33-year-old veteran joins a young, talented 76ers team that includes top three draft picks Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, Jahlil Okafor and Markelle Fultz.

The 76ers desperately needed shooting - they were 25th in the 30-team National Basketball Association in 3-point percentage last season, making only 34 percent of their attempts. The sharp-shooting guard averaged 15.0 points per game while appearing in 78 contests and Redick converted 42.9 percent of his three-point attempts.
