2. Brooklyn Nets
This has nothing to do with the fact that Redick owns a warehouse apartment in Brooklyn, but that definitely does help make the case of trading him to the Brooklyn Nets, as the Pelicans don’t have to worry about him finding a new home.
In terms of the basketball reasons, which is the entire reason you are here reading this article, Redick fits on a Brooklyn team that could use some off-ball shooting nicely. Right now, Spencer Dinwiddie is getting most of the minutes in the backcourt off the bench, showing how thin the depth is at the position group.
Redick would be an instant upgrade to the depth and would be the perfect third-option in the backcourt behind Kyrie Irving and Joe Harris. Redick would be the first guy off the bench with Dinwiddie only serving as the backup point guard.
There are two ways to go about this in terms of what the team trades this season. The Nets could either trade the Philadelphia 76ers pick this season, which is lottery-protected or could trade their 2021 first-round pick, which the team is expecting to be low with Durant returning.
I don’t hate the idea of the Nets trading Jordan for either side as they have Allen to bank towards in the future and the Pelicans drastically need size with a traditional center. Jordan’s contract last four seasons and only pays him $10 million a season, which is a great price.
I think the Nets would be cautious in this as it leaves the team small this season but that can be made up next summer and Redick would help the team more.
