Old Faces In New Places: J.J. Redick


Old Team: Milwaukee Bucks

New Team: Los Angeles Clippers

Role: Starter

Best Case Scenario: J.J. Redick will perfectly fill the void that the Los Angeles Clippers have been missing for years and get them over the hump and into the Western Conference Finals — at the very least. Redick will average a career-best in three-point percentage and average at-least 12 points per game. He will play his first complete season since the 2009-10 season and help the Clippers substantially during their deep playoff run.

Worst Case Scenario: Redick falls out of the starting lineup because he just isn’t producing. The Clippers are forced to trade for another shooting guard option and/or are forced to insert Willie Green back into the lineup in order to keep Jamal Crawford in his sixth man role. The Clippers fall short of making the Western Conference Finals once again.

What Will Really Happen: This will be the best situation that Redick has been in during his eight-year career. Chris Paul and Blake Griffin will give Redick space that can only rival what Dwight Howard was able to do for him in Orlando. He will see tons of open shots, the kind that you dream of as a spot-up shooter. He will feel like he’s at Duke again. I expect Redick to have a monster year, and possibly lead the league in three-point shooting. The Clippers will finally breakthrough to the Western Conference Finals — at least — and Redick will have a big hand in that. This is an ideal spot for Redick, he should flourish with the Clippers.
