Redick, 33, has averaged 15-plus points in each of the past four seasons.

Redick tipped his hand with a tweet: "Trust the process", a clear nod to Philadelphia's mantra during its rebuilding cycle over the last several years.

The Sixers on Saturday agreed with guard J.J. Redick on a one-year, $23 million deal, a source confirmed to CSNPhilly.com's Jessica Camerato. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because nothing can become finalized until the NBA's summer moratorium is lifted on Thursday. After building up a talented young core with the likes of Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid and rookie Markelle Fultz, the Philadelphia 76ers have reportedly added a top-end free agent. Chris Paul was traded to the Houston Rockets. Redick provides both. The 11-year veteran shot 42.9 percent from three last season, a year after leading the league with a 47.5 percent mark.

But the fact that those scenes were updated while the bride auction remained intact rankled some even more. I can't think of a single attraction that has not been enhanced and improved, some over and over again.

The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor first reported the Sixers and Nets meant to make a "hard push" for Redick, and it's not hard to see why.

The former Duke star, who previously played for the Orlando Magic and Milwaukee Bucks, struggled this year in the playoffs.

Once Paul informed the Clippers he meant to leave as a free agent if they did not trade him to Houston, the franchise accomplished its next top objective: agreeing on a new contract with All-Star power forward Blake Griffin on Friday evening. Entering the weekend, their top priorities were Denver forward Danilo Gallinari, Utah's Ingles and San Antonio's Jonathan Simmons.
