Clippers Win 3-Team Trade With Suns, Bucks by Landing JJ Redick
After getting bounced out of the first-round of the 2013 NBA Playoffs, the Los Angeles Clippers had some work to this offseason and so far they are making all of the right moves. While the firing of Vinny Del Negro followed by the hiring of Doc Rivers might be the two best moves in franchise history, LA’s recent trade for JJ Redick is just as impressive.
To avoid confusion, Redick was an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but the Clippers were able to work a sign-and-trade deal that included the Milwaukee Bucks and the Phoenix Suns. Jared Dudley will be heading north from Phoenix to Tinseltown as a sharpshooter who will also help the flow of the Clippers’ offense. The Suns ended up with Eric Bledsoe and the expiring contract of Caron Butler,while the Bucks walked away from the deal with two second-round pick for the 2014 NBA Draft — one pick from the Clippers and the other from the Suns.
Los Angeles relied way too heavily on inconsistent players like Jamal Crawford last season.
Although Redick has been called one-dimensional in the past, he improved as an all-around player and can contribute in more ways than one. With that being said, Redick hit career-highs in both points per game and assists per game in 2013.
As for the Suns?
Well, Bledsoe could be out of the desert sooner rather than later as the former-18th overall pick will be forced to compete with Goran Dragic for the starting point-guard spot. As underrated as they come, Dragic has excelled with the Suns and dealing Bledsoe could bring Phoenix back a rather talented package of players.
