It’s a significant loss for the 76ers, who relied on Redick as a big part of their offense, and not just for his perimeter shooting ability. It’s also a very nice addition for the Pelicans, as Redick joins Zion Williamson, Lonzo Ball, and Brandon Ingram in the overhauled roster. They’ll contend for a playoff spot and will be one of the most interesting teams in the league to watch this season.
