Just before the trade deadline last season, guard J.J. Redick was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks in a deal that sent forward Tobias Harris to the Orlando Magic.
Redick, who the Magic selected with the 11th overall pick in the 2006 draft, had never played for another team and had trouble adjusting to the Bucks.
“I would say challenging,” Redick told Andrew Gruman of Fox Sports Wisconsin. “For the amount of talent we had, I would have thought we would have won some more games. I would have liked to have won some more games. I really just couldn’t get things rolling.”
Although his team in Milwaukee didn’t work out, Redick is happy he found a home in Los Angeles.
“I was very fortunate that this situation worked out for me,” Redick said. “I didn’t really know it was a possibility until the day free agency started. Everything kind of happened within 24 to 48 hours, and I owe a lot of it to Doc for getting me here. I’m very happy with the way things have gone. It’s a great group, just a great organization. It’s been a great experience.”
Redick is averaging 16.4 points, 2.3 assists and 2.1 rebounds per game for the 31-15 Clippers.
