JJ Redick is taking his shooting stroke to the Big Easy.

The free agent will leave the 76ers to sign a two-year, $26.5 million deal to play for the New Orleans Pelicans, a league source confirmed. ESPN was first to report the news.

The 35-year-old averaged a career-best 18.1 points last season to go with averages of 2.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists. His 240 made three-pointers are a single-season record for the franchise. This came one season after Redick averaged 17.1 points, his previous career high.

Redick first came to the Sixers on a one-year deal two summers ago. He re-signed for one season on July 2 last year, one day into the free-agency period.

The Pelicans selected Zion Williamson with the first overall pick on the June 20 NBA draft. Like he did with the Sixers, the 13-year-old veteran will provide floor spacing for New Orleans.

Toronto Raptors free-agent shooting guard Danny Green could be a solid replacement for Redick, and the Sixers have some interest. Green, however, is looking at the Raptors and the Dallas Mavericks, according to ESPN. He wants to wait until Raptors free agent Kawhi Leonard makes a decision before agreeing to sign with a team.
