JJ Redick announced his retirement from the NBA on Tuesday, after a 15-year career.
“Today, I am officially retiring from the game of basketball,” he wrote on social media. “I started playing basketball 30 years ago in my backyard on an uneven patch of dirt, gravel, and grass. It was on that court that my dreams began to form. Reality has far surpassed my dreams!!
“So thankful for 15 years in the NBA and all the amazing relationships and memories along the way.”
Redick played 44 games last season with the New Orleans Pelicans and Dallas Mavericks. He signed a two-year, $26.5 million deal with the Pelicans as a free agent in the summer of 2019, and was traded to the Mavericks this past March.
Redick, 37, was drafted at No. 11 by the Orlando Magic in 2006 and spent more than six seasons there before being traded to the Milwaukee Bucks. He later spent four season with the LA Clippers, and two with the Philadelphia 76ers.
