I think it’s possible to get Redick on that kind of deal, depending on what other offers are out there. I’m sure staying close to his wife and kids, as well as staying as a core member of a young, possible contending team is EXTREMELY APPEALING to him. He has made a lot of money in his career and likely prioritizes winning moreso than a younger player.
However, there is certainly a tipping point where you have to choose money over location, friends, and winning. If he gets a 3 year, 45 million offer from some other team, or even a 2 year 30 million, that is a lot of money to leave on the table.
I think he is clearly a “take less money to stay with current team” type of guy. Just matters how much less it would be.
So if Redick re-signed using the Room exception he would receive $9,316,020 over 2 years with PHI.
Or IF contenders were to offer him their full taxpayer MLE then he could possibly:
1) Sign with GS for $13,895,565 over 3 Years. He would fit in backing up the splash brothers plus surrounded by defenders.
2) Sign with CLE for $13,895,565 over 3 Years. He would flourish with LeBron. Look at what Korver is doing at at 36.
3) Sign with HOU for $13,895,565 over 3 Years. They already have Gordon off the bench but D'Antoni always wants more shooters. This is the same D'Antoni who players Quentin Richardson and Joe Johnson as his PFs back in PHO.
All 3 of those options give him a better chance at contending immediately, more money, and more security than the room exception with PHI, right?
My premise if you follow the conversation back was that he would consider the Sixers if they signed an impact, max guy ahead of him. So with the understanding that we get a Lebron or George. Otherwise, we’d have plenty of money to pay Redick.
I think Lebron leaves Cleveland and they will stink.
I think those other teams might have other plans for their money. GS has been struggling to avoid adding salary, like the Iguodala situation, and will not sign Redick if it would compromise a Klay signing the following year.
It seems anti-Morey to sign Redick for two year deal when he always keeps the door open because, as he said, he values the max guys.
Again, you argued with me all summer that there was NO WAY the Sixers don’t pick up Okafor’s option, therefore, clearing max cap space was not a possibility. And you said you would save my prediction that they don’t pick up his option to rub it in my face when it happens.
Same scenario, I’m throwing out realistic possibilities, but have no idea if they will come to fruition. While you kept saying they absolutely would pick up Okafor’s option, I said they may, but not picking up his option was a definite possibility. And they didn’t pick up his option.
Do I know what Redick’s market will be? No. Teams plans are fluid. Of course we can present possible offers for him. They may or may not happen. If the Sixers get a Lebron or George, and the market doesn’t give Redick enticing enough offers, then he certainly would consider us.
