Redick spent the first six-and-a-half years of his career with the Orlando Magic. He was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks during the 2012-13 season.

BTW here’s my feature on JJ Redick from his first year with the Pels in 2019. Still pretty remarkable what he did that season at age 35. The left-hand game-winner at Sacramento will always be legendary.

JJ Redick played 15 NBA seasons.
Be honest, there was a point you didn’t think he’d play more than 3-5. – 10:38 AM

The number of people who predicted JJ Redick would play 15 seasons, let alone have the level of success he did: Zero.
Great run. – 9:52 AM

JJ Redick is one of only four players to rank inside the top 20 in all-time 3-point makes and 3-point FG pct.
The other three: Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Kyle Korver.
He’s unquestionably one of the 10 greatest shooters in the history of the sport. – 9:39 AM

Jake Madison @NOLAJake
His exit from New Orleans (and his play last year) soured everything, but with free agency in 2019 I was stunned JJ Redick signed with the Pels in the opening minutes. Seemed like such a big deal for him to choose to be here. – 9:22 AM

Synergy Sports Tech @SynergySST
JJ Redick shot an eFG% of 70% on guarded catch and shoot jump shots in the half court during the 2019-20 season. – 9:13 AM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
The fact that JJ Redick is 6th all time in Sixers history in 3-pointers made despite playing only 2 seasons is crazy to me – 9:10 AM

Tom Haberstroh @tomhaberstroh
Congrats to JJ Redick on an incredible 15-year career. Finishes No. 1 in NBA 3-pointers all-time among Duke players and made the playoffs in every year* of his NBA career.

JJ Redick’s career is an ode to hard work, incremental improvement, honest self-awareness and patience.
One of the best careers ever by a shooter but only because he checked his ego at the door and worked tirelessly to shore up weaknesses in order to let his shooting shine. – 8:59 AM

Kane Pitman @KanePitman
I really thought JJ Redick had a Milwaukee redemption tour in him the last few years. Alas, quite the career. – 8:51 AM

JJ Redick hanging it up. Would make a great color commentator if he wants to go in that direction.

All the best to JJ Redick, who announced his retirement on his The Old Man & the Three show. Hell of a run for one of the best shooters the NBA has ever seen.
