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

Brooklyn Nets 2017 NBA Free Agency Preview Nets USATSI_9995398-640x440

Redick recently located to the East Coast from Los Angeles, where he spent the past four seasons with the LA Clippers.

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.

The news was initially broken by Redick, who tweeted out a phrase that has become a rallying cry for the franchise.

This report comes after L.A. Clippers beat reporter Brad Turner revealed that Redick is also eyeing the Houston Rockets, where he could potentially reunite with former teammate, Chris Paul.

Redick had interest from other clubs, including Minnesota, but couldn't get the Wolves to totally engage in moves toward a deal. Redick is also a career 89 percent shooter from the foul line.

"It's where I wanted to be", Redick told Wojnarowski, immediately after signing his one-year contract worth $23 million to join an exciting young core that includes Joel Embiid and Dario Saric, and No. 1 overall draft picks Ben Simmons and Markelle Fultz. Redick played last season for about $7.4 million.

The Sixers, Timberwolves, and Nets all finished in the bottom half of the league in three-point percentage last season and adding Redick to the mix would nearly certainly improve any of those squads' offense from beyond the arc.
