Redick, 37, is 6-foot-4 and has been one of the premier perimeter threats since entering the NBA as the No. 11 overall draft pick out of Duke in 2006.

He spent the first six-and-half years of his career with the Magic, before being traded to the Bucks in 2012-13. He then played four years for the Clippers, followed by two each with the 76ers. He joined the Pelicans in 2019 and was traded to the Mavericks near the end of last season.

“Over 940 regular season games, Redick averaged 12.8 points per game,” RealGM wrote. “Redick was one of the NBA’s most-feared shooters, as he shot 41.5% from behind the arc for his career. In the regular season, Redick buried 1,950 three-pointers.”

Redick had discussed the possibility of joining a contender later in the season, but clearly has decided against that. He had been linked to the Nets, Knicks and several others.

There is also a possibility that a team in desperate need of outside shooting to try to talk Redick out of retirement late in the season. But for now, he’s hanging ’em up.
