Raptors Interview JJ Redick for Coaching Vacancy

Former NBA shooting guard and current ESPN analyst J.J. Redick has interviewed for the Raptors’ coaching vacancy, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.JJ Redick

Redick, 38, has no coaching experience. He was one of multiple candidates to interview for the job — which opened following the season, when the Raptors fired Nick Nurse.

As a player, Redick spent 15 years in the NBA as one of its top 3-point marksmen. He retired at the end of the 2020-21 season with the Mavericks, joining ESPN as both a studio and in-game analyst shortly after.

The No. 11 overall pick by the Magic in 2006, Redick spent his first seven seasons with Orlando. He also spent time with the Clippers, 76ers, and Bucks, as well as the Pelicans and Mavs in his final season.

He retired with career averages of 12.8 points and 42 percent shooting on threes.

Toronto reportedly has also interviewed Milwaukee assistant Charles Lee for the vacancy. For more on the Raptors and possible roster changes, be sure to check out our latest notes here and all the time on our Raptors page.
