Redick Hangs It Up

The 15th-best three-point marksman in NBA history has retired after 15 seasons in the Association.

Following one of the best college careers ever, JJ Redick was drafted No. 11 overall in 2006 and suited up for six teams as a reliable spot-up shooter — last playing for Dallas.

“It’s time for me to be a dad. It’s time for me to reflect, pause, and it’s time for me to get ready for the next phase of my life,” the 37-year-old announced on his aptly named “The Old Man and the Three” podcast.

  • He’s made the 15th-most threes in NBA history (1,950) and has the 17th-best 3PT% in league history (41.5%).
  • He’s one of four players in the top 20 in both makes and percentage from downtown. 
  • Redick is second all-time for both three-pointers made (674) and three-point shooting percentage (44%) in Los Angeles Clippers history.
  • He’s Duke’s all-time leading scorer (2,769 points) and all-time leader in threes (457).

Redick’s career achievements, specifically from the perimeter, made him some good coin in the NBA — approximately $118.3 million total, and close to $60 million over his final five years.

At Duke, he won the Wooden Award and AP Player of the Year his senior year in 2005-06, averaging a school-best 26.8 PPG on 42.1% shooting from three.

Redick reportedly requested a trade to one of the Atlantic Division teams to be closer to his family, but was traded to Dallas instead.
