2. J.J. Redick
Do you sense a theme? First Danny Green, now J.J. Redick of the Philadelphia 76ers. The Chicago Bulls need shooters. Redick is as good as there is. The sharpshooter has shot over 36.6 percent from 3-point range in 14 of his 15 NBA seasons.
With a core as young as the Bulls, Redick’s most recent experience in Philadelphia would pay dividends. Having played beside Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, he knows a thing or two about performing with young and talented players.
In 2018-19, the former Duke star averaged 18.1 points on 44.0 percent shooting from the field and 39.7 percent from downtown. His scoring off the bench would alleviate the second-unit woes the Bulls experienced and certainly would be an upgrade over the inconsistent Wayne Selden Jr.
Bringing in Redick, who will turn 35 before next season, would most likely be a one-year experiment, but he could also serve as a valuable mentor to LaVine. The team may have to sweeten the pot, however, to entice the shooting guard into another rebuilding situation.
