JJ Redick Is Calling It A Career

Last month, JJ Redick said that he planned to sign with an NBA team later on in the 2021-22 season in hopes of winning his first championship. Now, the 37-year-old has had a change of heart, as he has announced his retirement from the league.

Redick will forever be known for success as a three-point shooter. In total, he successfully hit 1,950 threes during his career, which is the 15th most of all-time. 

Redick was selected 11th overall in the 2006 NBA draft by the Orlando Magic. In 396 games with them over seven seasons, he averaged 9.2 PPG, 1.8 rebounds and 1.9 assists. However, he blossomed into a stronger offensive force later on in his tenure with them, as he averaged 11.6 PPG and 15.1 PPG in his final two seasons with the club. 

As his career progressed, he spent time with the Milwaukee Bucks, Los Angeles Clippers, Philadelphia 76ers, New Orleans Pelicans and Dallas Mavericks. In 940 career games total, he averaged 12.8 PPG, 2.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists. 

Overall, he had a very solid career. We'd like to wish JJ the best moving forward!
