Okay, the header is a bit dramatic — the Philadelphia 76ers needed to let J.J. Redick walk in order to land Al Horford. Fine. Right move, difficult sacrifice. The Sixers’ offense has undergone significant changes this season, in large part due to Redick’s absence. He was a linchpin — one Brett Brown was unafraid to use.
This season, Redick is pouring in 15.2 points per game on 47.1 percent shooting from deep as the stopgap starter in New Orleans. Upon Zion Williamson‘s eventual return, expectations are Redick will return to the bench.
