JJ Redick went to New Orleans this summer after the “economics” didn’t work out following the completion of his second one-year contract with the Sixers.
The Pelicans are in Philly tonight and Redick spoke to reporters at shootaround, touching first on the success of his former team:
JJ Redick on the Sixers: “It’s weird to say this but I’m enjoying their success, I really am. I will always pull for any Brett Brown coached team and obviously love Ben, Joel and Tobias and all those guys that I played with the last two years.” pic.twitter.com/owqEIvE9Xt

JJ Redick on the TNT guys' criticism of former teammate Joel Embiid: “Saw a headline on ESPN. Heard a little bit of dialogue last night. I had the game on mute because Webber was doing it.”
