Dallas Mavericks: 5 Possible Free Agent Shooting Guards
One of the biggest names on the free agency radar is J.J Redick, the sharpshooting veteran with the Los Angeles Clippers. Redick is an unrestricted free agent this summer and, with the Clippers organization the way it is, there is a reasonable belief that the former Duke All-Star could be moving for greener pastures.

Redick had a pretty solid season this year, starting slow but finishing strong and shooting the 3rd highest three-point percentage of his career. Aside from that, Redick stayed close to his average in all other stats. The big turnoff with J.J. would be that he is 32 years old and will be looking for a long term deal, but if the Mavs could get him on a short contract, it could benefit both parties.
J.J. Redick would like to be with the Mavs because he is a great locker room guy and Dallas’ locker room situation will be much better than the Clips. His shooting would be something highly sought after in Dallas and other players would help him get open even more so than before.
Dallas would love to have Redick because his ability to shoot the rock is something Dallas really missed last season. With great midrange games from Harrison Barnes and Dirk Nowitzki, and an inside presence from Nerlens Noel, the outside shooting will open up well for this sharpshooter.
The big turnoff for Dallas is that they do not want to go older this offseason and Redick is getting up there in age. The only way these two teams would be able to work out a deal is if they could reach an agreement on a shorter contract, maybe 3 years with an option in the third. Without that possibility, (which is a bit of a longshot truthfully), Dallas probably will not pursue Redick.
