JJ Redick is one of the most prolific shooters of all-time in basketball at all three levels, high school, college and professional. Redick, the former No. 11 pick of the 2006 Draft, played for six teams in his NBA career and spent last season with the New Orleans Pelicans and Dallas Mavericks. He averaged 12.8 points in 940 regular-season games, and his 1,950 career makes from 3-point range rank him 15th in NBA history in that category.
Redick is Duke’s all-time leading scorer, with 2,769 points in his college career. He also remains Duke’s all-time leader in 3-pointers by a wide margin with 457 and free-throw accuracy at 91.2%. Redick averaged 26.8 points — another Duke record — as a senior, on his way to the AP player of the year honor. He was one of the best 3-point shooters of his era, making 200 or more 3-pointers four times in five seasons from 2014-19. He led the NBA at 47.5% shooting from long range during the 2015-16 season with the LA Clippers. He appeared in the NBA playoffs in each of his first 13 pro seasons, got to the NBA Finals with Orlando in 2009 and had a career-high 40-point game for the Clippers in an overtime win over Houston on Jan. 18, 2016. His best overall season came in 2018-19, when he posted 18.1 ppg, 2.4 rpg and 2.7 apg while shooting 44% overall and 39.7% on 3-pointers for the Philadelphia 76ers.
