2019 Fantasy Outlook
Redick signed a two-year, $26.5 million deal with the Pelicans in the offseason and leaves the 76ers after the most productive two-year stretch in his career. With the 76ers, Redick averaged 17.6 points and 3.0 threes per contest on 41.1 percent from deep. As a member of the Pelicans, Redick may come off the bench, which would be an adjustment for the 14-year vet after starting in 96.5 percent of his games over the last five seasons. He's averaged at least 15 points per contest over that stretch, and it's fair to think his production won't drop off sharply even if playing a sixth-man role. Despite his age, Redick is still in excellent shape and should fit in well with what figures to be an uptempo team. He'll likely be a solid contributor in all shooting categories, though he's limited on the defensive side of the ball. For fantasy owners in need of three-point help, Redick has made for an excellent option in that department for most of his career. Read Past Outlooks

College/International Summary

Redick has the distinction of being the leading career scorer in Duke basketball history. The four-year starter averaged at least 15.0 points in each of his Blue Devil seasons (2002-06). The 6-foot-3 shooting guard put up 30 points as a freshman in an ACC Tournament win over NC State. He hit 39.9 percent of his three-pointers as a freshman and shot 39.5 percent from long range in his second season. Redick averaged 15.9 points per contest as a sophomore and helped the Blue Devils to the Final Four, where they were defeated by UConn. In his junior season he helped the Blue Devils advanced to the Sweet 16. The guard was named as a First Team All-American and ACC Player of the Year after averaging 21.8 points and 3.7 three-pointers per game. Redick saved the best for last, as he averaged 26.8 points per game and hit 42.1 percent of his three-pointers as a senior. He also once again led the Blue Devils to the Sweet 16. The guard won the Naismith Player of the Year Award and was named AP Player of the Year, among other plaudits. Redick left Duke as the leading scorer in ACC history (subsequently passed by Tyler Hansbrough).

Redick (hamstring) is not expected back until after the Pelicans' upcoming road trip, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
It looks like Redick's earliest possible return date will be March 16 against the Hawks. The veteran sharp-shooter did take part in shooting drills at Saturday's practice, but it looks like the team will err on the side of caution before allowing him to return.

Past Season Summaries
2018

Redick's 13th NBA season was his second in Philadelphia, and would see him make the playoffs for the 13th time in his career. He set a new career-high in points scored in a season with 1372 points - or 18.1 points per game. He took 8.0 threes per game, as playing alongside Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons led to many opportunities on the perimeter. The 34-year-old also logged a career-high 31.3 minutes per game. Redick opened the season hot with back-to-back 30-point efforts in October. First, a 31-point game in a win against Orlando on the 20th which included a season-high eight three-point makes. He followed that up with a 31-point game in his team's 133-132 OT loss to Detroit on the 23rd. Redick once again surpassed the 30-point mark on Feb. 8 when he led his team to a 117-110 win against the Denver Nuggets, thanks to a six-of-seven shooting night from behind the arc. Redick scored at least 20 points in each of the final four games he appeared in before sitting out the final two in order to rest for the playoffs, including a 30-point effort on Apr. 3 against Atlanta and a 29-point day against Milwaukee. Redick averaged 13.4 points per game in the playoffs. He scored a postseason-high 26 points in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals against the Nets. Redick's season ended with a 40-minute effort where he recorded 17 points, four rebounds, three assists, one steal, and one block in game seven of the Eastern Conference semifinals.

2017

Redick was drafted out of Duke back in 2006 with the reputation of being a deadly three-point specialist, and 12 years into his NBA career, nothing has changed. Redick was fantastic in his first season in the City of Brotherly Love. His 17.1 points per game were a career-high. He contributed in secondary offensive categories (2.5 rebounds, 3 assists) while again doing his best work from the outside. Redick nailed at least 42 percent of his threes for a fourth-straight season. Redick hit 8-of-12 from deep on two separate occasions (Nov. 3 v. Indiana, Nov. 25 v. Orlando) and sunk multiple threes in seven of Philadelphia's 10 postseason games. On Nov. 3, Redick scored a season-high 31 points during a home win over the Pacers. Durability has also been on Redick's side. The 33-year-old veteran has missed only 27 regular season games over the past four seasons. In addition to his prowess from outside, Redick shot better than 90 percent from the foul line for the sixth time in his career. His 90.4 percent accuracy from the charity stripe ranked sixth in the Association. The 76ers finished the year at 52-30 and kept alive Redick's career streak of always making the playoffs. They eliminated the Heat in the first round, but lost to Boston in five games during the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Redick started all 10 playoff games for Philly and averaged 18.2 points, 2.6 assists, 2.6 three-pointers and 0.8 steals per post-season contest.

2016

For the third season in a row, Redick started every game in which he appeared. Over 78 games in the 2016-17 campaign, the veteran shooting guard averaged 15.0 points, 2.2 rebounds, and 2.6 three-pointers made across 28.2 minutes per contest for the Clippers. This was Redick's fourth season playing for Los Angeles. On Nov. 16, the 32-year-old posted 29 points, two boards, a season-high seven three-pointers, one steal and one block in a home loss to Memphis. Redick drained seven three-pointers in three different games and had 18 contests where he hit at least four attempts from beyond the arc. On Dec. 20, the Duke product generated 27 points, shot 7-of-9 from behind the arc and added three rebounds during a home blowout win over the Nuggets. Redick scored 20 or more points in 18 games. On Mar. 29, Redick scored a season-high 31 points during a home win over the Wizards. The Clippers ended the regular season at 51-31, good for fourth in the Western Conference. They lost to Utah in seven games during the first round of the playoffs, but Redick started all seven playoff games. In the Game 5 loss in LA, Redick delivered 26 points, three rebounds and three three-pointers.

2015

In the 2015-16 season, Redick proved he was a top-notch shooting guard. The 31-year-old started all 75 games in which he appeared and led the NBA in three-point shooting accuracy by hitting 47.5 percent of his shots from behind the arc. That accuracy led to a career-high 2.7 made three-pointers per game and his second straight season of 200 total threes. On Dec. 7, Redick drained a career-high 11 free throws (on 11 attempts) during a win at Minnesota. Two nights later, Redick generated 31 points, three rebounds and two assists during a win at Milwaukee. On Jan. 18, the Duke product scored a career-high 40 points on 11-of-19 shooting, with a career-high nine three-pointers, during a home win over the Rockets. Redick's previous game high was 33 points. The veteran guard scored 20 or more points in 23 regular-season games. The Clippers ended the season at 53-29 and lost to Portland in six games during the first round of the playoffs. Redick started all six playoff games and averaged 13.5 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.8 three-pointers per postseason contest.

2014

During the 2014-15 season, Redick continued to improve his game during his ninth season in The Association. The 30-year-old guard started all 78 games in which he appeared in for the LA Clippers. He delivered per-game career highs in points (16.4), three-pointers (2.6) and minutes played (30.9). Redick also shot a career-best 43.7 percent from behind the arc and a career-high 47.7 percent from the field. On Nov. 8, the Duke product scored a season-best 30 points, to go along with four boards and two three-pointers, during a home in over the Trail Blazers. Redick scored 20 or more points in 24 contests. On Mar. 11, Redick dished season-best seven assists, to go with 25 points, in a win at OKC. On Mar. 18, the shooting guard drained a season-high seven three pointers on his way to 27 points in a win at Sacramento. Redick hit four or more three-pointers in 22 games. The Clippers ended the season with a record of 56-26. They eliminated the Spurs in the first round of the playoffs, but lost in seven games to the Rockets in the Western Conference Finals. Redick started all 14 Clipper playoff games. During the Game 3 win over Houston, Redick scored a postseason career-high 31 points and shot 11-of-14 from the field.

2013

During the summer of 2013, Redick was part of a three-team trade that sent the shooting guard from the Milwaukee Bucks to the Los Angeles Clippers. Redick flourished with the Clippers and became, for the first time in his career, a regular starter. He started their first 17 games of the season and averaged 15.8 points, 2.2 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.9 three-pointers made per contest over that span. A wrist injury suffered Nov. 29th forced Redick to miss the Clippers' next 21 games. The sharpshooter returned Jan. 10 and started another 13 straight games. On Jan. 15, Redick scored a career-high 33 points, with five dimes, during a home win over the Mavericks. The injury bug returned in early-February, when Redick suffered a hip and back injury which forced him to miss 25 straight games. Redick returned Apr. 3 and played in five games before the season ended. Redick ended the year with career highs in points per game (15.2), steals per game (0.8), free throw percentage (.915) and games started (34). The Clippers ended the regular season with a mark of 57-25, defeated the Warriors in the first round of the playoffs, but lost to the Thunder in the Western Conference Semifinals. Redick started all 11 playoff games for LA and delivered 13.3 points, 1.7 boards and 2.0 three-pointers per postseason contest.

2012

Redick split the 2012-13 season between the Orlando Magic and the Milwaukee Bucks. He started his seventh NBA season with the Magic, the team that drafted him in 2006, and appeared in 50 Orlando contests with 11 starts. On Jan. 27, Redick started and posted a career-best-tying 31 points, plus six boards, in a close loss at Detroit. The next night, Redick again started and dished a career-high 10 assists during a loss at Brooklyn. On Feb. 21, the shooting guard was traded by Orlando with Gustavo Ayon and Ish Smith to the Bucks for Tobias Harris, Doron Lamb, Beno Udrih and cash considerations. Redick's playing time took a slight dip with the Bucks: his minutes per game went down from 31.5 to 28.7, with his shot attempts decreasing from 5.2 to 4.3 attempts per contest. Still, Redick ended the season with per-game career highs in points (14.1), three-pointers made (2.1) and assists (3.8). The Bucks lost to the Heat in four games during the first round of the playoffs that year, and Redick averaged 7.3 points as a reserve in those contests.

2011

During the 2011-12 season, Redick appeared in 65 games and started a career-high 22 contests for the Orlando Magic. For the fourth consecutive season, Redick increased his playing time. The shooting guard played a career-high 27.2 minutes per game, which led to career-high averages in points (11.6), assists (2.5), rebounds (2.3) and three-pointers made (1.7) per game. On New Year's Day, Redick posted 21 points, three boards, three dimes and three three-pointers during a home win over Toronto. Redick had 20 games in which he scored 15 points or more. On Apr. 25, Redick scored a career-high 31 points during a home win over Charlotte. Orlando finished the lockout-shortened season at 37-29 and lost to the Pacers in the first round of the playoffs. Redick played in all five playoff games for the Magic and scored in double-digits in four of those games, including a 10-point, seven-assist effort during Orlando's Game 4 loss.

2010

After playing in all 82 games last season, Redick signed a new three-year agreement to stay with the Magic. Redick had to battle a back injury and a stomach virus early on, but went on to have a stellar year featuring several milestones. Redick hit his stride on Dec. 14, when he scored a career-high 29 points and shot 6-of-9 from behind the arc in a loss at Denver. Redick's hot shooting steadily increased his playing time. For the season, Redick averaged a career-best 25.6 minutes per game, which led to a career-highs in points (10.1) and three-pointers (1.5) per contest. Redick scored in double-digits in 32 contests. His regular season was cut a bit short, as an abdominal injury forced the 6-foot-3 guard to miss the last 17 games of the regular season. Orlando finished the year at 52-30 and lost to the Hawks over six games in the first round of the playoffs. Redick returned from his injury in time to come of the bench in all six of Orlando's playoff games. During the Game 5 win, Redick posted 14 points, three rebounds and three assists. In what was his fifth career year seeing postseason action, Redick averaged 6.7 points across 20.0 minutes.

2009

For the first time Redick's career, the sharpshooting guard played in all 82 games during the 2009-10 season. In his fourth season with the Magic, Redick averaged a career-best 22.0 minutes per game. That increased playing time led to career-high game averages in points (9.6), three-pointers (1.4) and rebounds (1.9). The Duke product also shot a career-best 40.5 percent from behind the arc and started a career-high nine games. On Nov. 1, Redick started and posted a career-high 27 points, six boards and five dimes over 45 minutes of run during a win at Toronto. Redick's Magic ended the regular season with a mark of 59-23 and eliminated the Bobcats and the Hawks before losing to Boston in six games during the Eastern Conference Finals. Redick came off the bench in all 14 of Orlando's playoff games and delivered 7.5 points, 1.1 three-pointers and 0.7 steals over 19.2 minutes per postseason contest.

2008

Redick enjoyed better health in 2008-09, playing in a career-best 64 games for the Magic and averaging a career-high 17.4 minutes. His scoring average bounced back up to 6.0 points per game, and Redick also modestly grew his rebounding (1.7) and assist (1.1) numbers over prior campaigns. Most importantly, he remained a dangerous three-point shooter, hitting a career-high 1.0 threes per game at a 37.4 percent pace. Redick also turned in high-quality work from the free-throw line, making 87.1 percent of his attempts. On Nov. 18, Redick made his first NBA start, generating 10 points, three rebounds and a steal over 34 minutes during a home win over the Raptors. He posted double-digit scoring totals 15 times and twice scored a season-high 17 points. The Magic finished at 59-23 and made a run all the way to the NBA Finals before falling to the Lakers. Redick played in 16 of their 24 postseason games, starting eight times. He scored 15 points -- a personal playoff best -- in the deciding Game 6 of the first round against the Sixers, then scored 15 again in Game 2 of the second round against Boston.

2007

Redick suited up for 34 games off the bench for the Magic in 2007-08, his sophomore NBA campaign. Despite dealing with hand and back injuries as well as inconsistent playing time, the Duke product again showed promise as a shooter, making 39.5 percent of his shots from downtown while upping his overall field-goal percentage to 44.4. That helped him score efficiently when given the opportunity. With 4.1 points per game in just 8.1 minutes per game, Redick's per-36-minute scoring average was a sparkling 18.3 points. On Jan. 8, he managed to score 10 points in just 7:54 on the court. On Apr. 11, he scored 11 points in exactly 12 minutes. Redick's biggest game of the year came Apr. 16, when he scored 18 points -- including a season-high four threes -- with four rebounds and three assists in 24:28 off the bench against Washington.

2006

Drafted by the Magic with the 11th overall pick, Redick went on to make 42 appearances in his rookie campaign. Backs spasms and a right ankle injury forced the rookie to miss 21 of Orlando's first 23 games. Even so, Redick showed plenty of promise, often flashing his scoring ability despite limited playing time. His 6.0 points per game in 14.8 minutes per contest translated to a per-36-minute average of 14.6 points, and he offered impressive efficiency from beyond the arc (38.8 percent) and at the free throw line (an even 90 percent). The finest span of Redick's season came in late January and early February, when he he scored in double digits five times in a span of nine games. That included his biggest offensive output of the year, a 16-point effort against the Spurs on Feb. 9 -- one of four games on the year in which he connected on three shots from downtown. From Feb. 7 through the end of the regular season -- a span of 27 games for Redick -- he missed just one free throw in 32 attempts. He made his playoff debut in Game 4 of Orlando's first-round series against Detroit, hitting a three-pointer and notching two assists in 10:37 on the court.

Redick, who had previously played four consecutive seasons with the Clippers, joined the 76ers last offseason on a lucrative one-year, $23 million contract. The expectation was that he'd be a valuable mentor to some of the younger players on the roster, while also providing instant offense when the Sixers found themselves in a slump. Redick certainly filled that role admirably and actually out-performed many expectations. He averaged a career-high 17.1 points, which slotted him second on the team behind Joel Embiid and just above Ben Simmons. In addition, Redick remained just as effective with his trademarked three-point shooting, hitting 2.8 deep balls per game at a scorching hot 42.0 percent clip from deep. He's now posted four straight seasons shooting over 40 percent from deep and he also remained extremely efficient from the free-throw line (90.4 percent). After considering bolting to a new team this offseason, Redick opted to re-sign with the Sixers and should continue to provide an offensive weapon that can hit shots from all over the floor. With Embiid and Simmons potentially taking another step forward, as well as the potential to get former No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz, who missed all but 14 games last season, into the regular backcourt rotation, there's a decent chance Redick isn't able to provide as high of a scoring total as he did last year. He also doesn't provide much when it comes to the ancillary stats, so that hurts his utility in some leagues. That said, he boasts extremely high percentages and he finished 11th in the league in three-pointers made last year, so he'll still be draftable in the later rounds of most formats.
Redick signed a big money, one-year contract to join the young 76ers. While some of his appeal was his ability to serve as a veteran mentor, the sharpshooter entering his 12th season is likely to see significant usage as part of a 76ers team that has legitimate playoff ambitions. Redick perfectly fills a need in the 76ers depth chart as a floor-spacing shooting guard – the only position where the 76ers lacked a recent lottery pick. He is likely to start, though defensive ace Robert Covington could cut into Redick’s minutes. Redick left one of the best offenses in the league, though the 76ers have enough raw talent to distract opposing defenses. Nonetheless, starting alongside a collection of rookies and sophomores will likely lead to decreased efficiency numbers from Redick, though his total offensive production may benefit. He has averaged at least 15.0 points and 2.6 threes for each of the past three seasons.
At age 31, Redick turned in the best season of his 10-year career, averaging 16.3 points per game on 48 percent shooting from the field and a league-leading 47.5 percent from three-point range. The former Duke standout doesn’t provide much value in counting stat categories outside of scoring, but his stellar shooting percentages, which extended to the free-throw line, where he shot 88.8 percent a season ago, make him a valuable fantasy commodity. Considering Redick a career 41.2 percent shooter from beyond the arc, a decline is certainly possible from last year’s stellar mark, though even if he regresses by a few percentage points, he’d still rank among the league’s best perimeter marksmen. The Clippers made only minor tweaks to last year’s roster, so Redick’s role as the starting shooting guard won’t be threatened. Veteran Jamal Crawford is a capable bench option, but at some point his workload (26.9 minutes per game last season) may be reduced as he enters his age-36 season with nearly 34,000 career minutes under his belt.
Redick looks to reprise his role in the Clippers' starting lineup alongside Chris Paul in 2015-16. The 31-year-old veteran guard is entering his 10th season after playing 78 games and averaging a career-high 16.4 points as well as 2.1 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and 2.6 three-pointers in 31 minutes per game last season. Redick not only topped his career bests in points and three-pointers, but also posted the most efficient year of his career. He flirted with the 50-40-90 club, shooting 48 percent from the field, 90 percent from the free-throw line, and 44 percent from three-point territory. Redick's value as a fantasy option can be called into question, as his elite production across all shooting categories is offset by his low contributions in points, rebounds, and defensive stats (Redick averaged 0.5 steals and 0.1 blocks per game respectively in 2014-15). Still, Redick provides valuable contributions as a three-point specialist. While he is slated to remain the starting shooting guard in Los Angeles, the Clippers' offseason addition of guard Lance Stephenson puts Redick's playing time somewhat up in the air. It remains to be seen whether Stephenson will return to his 2013-14 form after an underwhelming one-year stint in Charlotte, but the 25-year-old could take minutes from Redick and fellow guard Jamal Crawford. With more depth in the Los Angeles backcourt, Redick could potentially see fewer minutes in the upcoming season.
Redick should slot in as the starting shooting guard in the Clippers' potent offense. He compliments Chris Paul nicely and capitalizes on his three-point opportunities. Redick should continue to be an efficient contributor in free-throw percentage (92%) and three-pointers this season. Last season, he averaged 15.2 points, 2.1 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 0.8 steals, and 2.1 three-pointers in 28 minutes per game through 35 games played. There's a good chance that Redick's value could take a leap this season with Darren Collison no longer in town and simply because Redick will hopefully be more healthy this season. He only played in 35 games last season due to elbow, wrist, knee, and back injuries, and when he did play, Redick was only given 28 minutes per game. It's possible that his low minutes average was a result of his injuries, and if that's true, we could see Redick average 30-plus minutes this season.
Called upon to shoulder a greater scoring burden for a rebuilding Magic squad early last season, Redick averaged 15.1 points and 4.4 assists while shooting a healthy 45 percent from the field before he was traded to the Bucks at the deadline. Redick struggled to replicate the production he showed with the Magic while playing behind top backcourt scorers Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis, but he looks to be a better fit with the Clippers after he was acquired by the team in a sign-and-trade in the offseason. Working as a complement on the wing to a true point guard in Chris Paul, Redick won't be asked to be anything more than a specialist with the Clippers, serving as the team's designated sharpshooter. The threat of Paul as a penetrator should afford Redick plenty of open looks while opposing defenses scramble to help out on Paul, thus boosting Redick's shooting percentages from the field and three-point land. Expect a dip in his minutes and his counting statistics as a result of the increased level of talent surrounding him, but Redick figures to be more efficient than ever since he won't be asked to be a primary perimeter scorer.
Though it might have gotten lost in all the hysteria surrounding the Dwight Howard trade talks, Redick put together the best season of his career in 2010-11, scoring 11.6 points to go along with 2.5 assists and 2.3 rebounds per game. As always, Redick’s success was predicated on his much-ballyhooed shooting stroke, as he turned in marks of 41.8 percent from three and 91.1 percent from the free-throw line. With Howard now finally traded, Redick looks like one of the few salvageable pieces on a rebuilding roster that includes expendable veterans such as Al Harrington, Hedo Turkoglu and Quentin Richardson. Working against Redick’s favor is the presence of Arron Afflalo, another player the Magic will attempt to build around but a player that shares the same position as Redick. As a result, Redick will most likely come off the bench, a role he’s probably best suited for. That won’t necessarily equate to a decline in the 27.2 minutes per game he received last season, however. The hapless Magic will probably be trailing on most nights and will need someone to shoot them back into games, a scenario in which Redick would almost certainly receive extended time. It’s well within his ability to bring a team back on certain nights, though it won’t happen nearly often enough to offset the other deficiencies in his game, particularly on defense.
Redick started his offseason with abdominal surgery in May, although he’s fully recovered. Redick has established himself as a solid NBA player and can do more than simply stroke the three. He has displayed an ability to put the ball on the floor and attack the hoop on occasion, and he needs to keep doing this to create more space on the perimeter. After posting a solid 10.1 points per game off the bench last year, Redick will be the first wing off the bench and contribute similarly this year.
Redick has actually done a kind of commendable thing in his four-year NBA career – which is not only to accept a considerably smaller role than his college stardom would've prepared him for, and not only to deal with receiving considerably fewer minutes in his second season than in his first, but actually to fashion himself into a decent NBA role player along the way. By almost every measure, 2009-10 was Redick's best in the NBA, as the guard set career highs with 9.6 points per game, 1.4 treys, a 40.5 three-point percentage, and so on. Were he to receive something like starter's minutes, there's a possibility that he could be rosterable. Of course, with his defensive shortcomings and incumbent shooting guard Vince Carter ahead of him on the depth chart in Orlando, the likelihood of that happening is low.
Redick is coming off the most-productive season of his career. He saw action in 64 games and even started five of those. Redick will be the best shooter on Orlando's roster this season, so expect him to get some playing time in most games. Redick can hit some threes and will always have an above-average free throw percentage, but he won't provide much in the other fantasy categories.
Redick just can't seem to find a way off Orlando's bench, mainly because Van Gundy has said that Redick won't see playing time until his defense improves. Orlando's other shooting guards are better defensively than Redick, so don't expect him to play much.
Redick struggled through his rookie season, battling injuries and not seeing much playing time. However, as he did in college, he worked hard in the offseason to improve his game. He isn't very quick and isn't a very good defender, but there aren't many guys in the league with a better long-range shot. If he plays about 25 minutes a game, he could score at least 10 points per game and put up good three-point numbers and percentages. A lot of his numbers will depend on if he starts or comes off the bench, which the Magic have yet to determine.
A prolific college scorer, but can his game translate well to the NBA game? His size could be a problem, but don't count him out yet. He worked extremely hard his senior year on creating his own shot, and is deadly if given any room to shoot.
