ESPN reported Saturday afternoon that J.J. Redick has signed a one year deal with the 76ers. The news was initially broken by Redick, who tweeted out a phrase that has become a rallying cry for the franchise.

The 33-year-old veteran joins a young, talented 76ers team that includes top three draft picks Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, Jahlil Okafor and Markelle Fultz.

Redick had been a critical piece of the Clippers efforts to break through in the Western Conference, and a fine complement next to Chris Paul in the backcourt.

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.

"It's where I wanted to be", Redick told ESPN in a text message.

The Sixers would have to shell out money to get the restricted free agents in order to avoid the Pistons and Wizards, respectively, from matching the contract offers.

With Griffin on board, the Clippers were expected to address their hole at small forward.

The team only has the $8.4 million mid-level exception left to spend although they could potentially shed salary to sign someone to a heftier contract.
