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

Free agent guard JJ Redick has reached agreement on a one-year, $23 million contract with the Philadelphia 76ers, league sources told ESPN. Redick making between $15-18 million a year is not a deal this team needed on their books two years from now.

Redick actually broke the news himself, announcing his pick by borrowing the team's (and Joel Embiid's) favorite slogan.

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.

Ahead of free agency, the Sixers reportedly made it known that the organization would prefer one-year deals over long-term contracts, providing additional long-term flexibility as the build around Fultz, Simmons, Embiid and Saric continues. Originally drafted 11th overall by Orlando, the Duke product has spent the last four years of his career with the Clippers. Redick also said Philly is where he wants to be. Most importantly, he shot an impressive 43 percent from 3-point range, which should help spread the floor and open up driving lanes in the 76ers' offense.

Free agent signings can't become official until Thursday.
