4. SG J.J. Redick
The city of Cleveland is should get someone with the first name of J.J. this year, gosh darn it. Redick is older, having turned 37 years old in June. Because of his age, he’s not as quick as he used to be and he used to be quick. He’s also not exactly a defensive player; though there have been times when he’s been very good in the right defensive system.
It’s unlikely he can get back to that form, yet what he can do still, hopefully, is hit threes. The version of Kyle Korver the Cavs had was very much like the current version of Redick, and Korver helped the team get to the NBA Finals. Granted, this isn’t an NBA Finals team, but Redick can still provide help for the Cavs. The team needs three-point shooting and if Redick is coming off the bench, he may be able to provide that.
You don’t want to rely on him for 30 minutes a night, but 15-20 minutes a game with the second-line of players, with Ricky Rubio, Evan Mobley, and Cedi Osman? That might be a unit that can play some ball.
He’s not the most ideal fit but he’s a fit regardless. His age and lack of defense are why he’s the fourth most attractive option.
