When JJ Redick signed a one-year deal as a free agent with the Philadelphia 76ers last offseason, he posted on social media: “Trust the process.”
A year later, having helped the Sixers significantly further that process with a run to the Eastern Conference semifinals, the veteran sharpshooter indicated that he hopes to remain in Philadelphia in the future.
“I think it is a mutual appreciation,” Redick told reporters Thursday, a day after Philly’s season ended in Game 5 with a loss to the Boston Celtics. “I am sure we all hope I am back.”
Now, he’s set to become an unrestricted free agent in July, when he’ll be 34.
“The numbers can get tricky,” he said. “It is not my job to worry about that. I will let [Sixers president and general manager Bryan Colangelo], my agent and the events over the next two months play out, and we will make a decision.”
