‘It’s time’: After 15 NBA seasons, guard JJ Redick retires
It’s time’: After 15 NBA seasons, guard JJ Redick retires.
J.J. Redick, the sharpshooter who was named The Associated Press collegiate player of the year at Duke before going on to play in the NBA for 15 seasons, announced his retirement on Tuesday.
Redick, 37, has played for six NBA teams: Orlando Magic, Los Angeles Clippers, Philadelphia 76ers, New Orleans Pelicans, Milwaukee Bucks, and Dallas Mavericks.
In 940 regular-season games, he averaged 12.8 points per game, and his 1,950 career 3-pointers put him 15th in NBA history.
“When I was seven years old, I dreamt of playing at Duke when I grew up. On his podcast “The Old Man and the Three,” Redick stated, “I dreamt of playing in the NBA.” “Basketball has exceeded my greatest expectations over the past 30 years.
I never thought I’d be able to play basketball for as long as I have. I’m retiring from the game I love after years of youth leagues, AAU, high school basketball, four years at Duke, and 15 years in the NBA.”
