According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Sixers have signed veteran guard J.J. Redick to a one-year contract that will pay him an absurd $23 million in cold hard cash.

J.J. Redick, the Los Angeles Clippers free-agent shooting guard who was a target of numerous teams, reportedly made a decision to go with the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday.

On Saturday, Redick tweeted, "Trust the process", a nod to former executive Sam Hinkie's mantra about the Sixers slow but deliberate rebuild. However, as free agency approached it became increasingly clear that Redick was not in the Clippers' plans and that he was no longer interested in them. In moving to Philadelphia, Redick should continue to be a great source of points, three-pointers and field goal percentage, while he could even see more usage now that he won't be playing alongside superstars Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan.

The Sixers have been linked to Redick for quite some time, and earlier today, Redick showed interest in coming to Philadelphia if he couldn't come to an agreement with the Houston Rockets.

He averaged a career-high 18.1 points and 3.7 assists this past season and also grabbed 7.7 rebounds. That's a potential playoff team right there.
