JJ Redick spent 15 seasons in the NBA, two of them with the Philadelphia 76ers where he was a key reason for their success, before announcing his retirement in September. Redick will go down as one of the best 3-point shooters in NBA history as shot 41.5% from deep for his career.

In two seasons with Philadelphia, Redick helped space the floor for Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons as he shot 40.7% from deep across those two seasons and the team won 50+ games in each season. He also knocked down 433 triples with the Sixers which is good for sixth all-time in the franchise’s history as he was able to find open looks early and often.

Now, Redick is ready for the next phase of his life. He announced on Twitter that he will be joining ESPN’s NBA staff as a new analyst for them.

Redick, who also has a podcast called “The Old Man and the Three” will be looking to bring his NBA expertise to ESPN and continue to enhance their coverage of the league.
