Free Agent Rumors: Redick, Ingles, Hayward, Gay

The first meeting for Clippers guard J.J. Redick was with the Sixers, posts Adrian Wojnarowski on ESPN Now. On ESPN’s television coverage, Wojnarowski said Philadelphia would like to convince Redick to accept a short-term contract, “a one-year deal at a very big number, $20 million-plus, potentially.” The Timberwolves and Nets are also expected to be contenders for Redick, and he has expressed interest in joining former Clippers teammate Chris Paul with the Rockets. Wojnarowski adds that there is no chance of Redick returning to L.A.

There’s more from the early hours of free agency:

  • Jazz forward Joe Ingles has received “serious interest” from the Magic and has three meetings scheduled for Saturday, tweets Tim Bontemps of The Washington Post. Ingles will meet with the Utah delegation this weekend, according to Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune (Twitter link).
  • Heat center Hassan Whiteside has been actively recruiting Gordon Hayward to Miami, tweets Alex Kennedy of Hoops Hype. Whiteside will attend Hayward’s meeting with Heat officials on Saturday.
  • Kings forward Rudy Gay has four meetings set up over the next few days, Kennedy adds (Twitter link).
  • The Nuggets reached out to Utah’s George Hill during the first hour of free agency, posts Ian Begley on ESPN Now. Denver could create cap room to sign Hill by letting Danilo Gallinari leave, Begley notes.
  • The Mavericks had a “great call” with Nerlens Noel, tweets Eddie Sefko of The Dallas Morning News. Noel expressed a desire to re-sign with the team, but nothing has been finalized.
  • The Lakers made calls tonight to Andre Iguodala, Rajon Rondo and Ben McLemore., tweets Ramona Shelburne of ESPN.com. The Knicks and Bucks have also inquired about McLemore, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com (Twitter link).

    McLemore is the exact type of player the Bulls should be targeting…Get it done PaxDorf…lol

    Padan, Knicks need shooting.. Justin holliday is a free agent and they need depth at the 2. (They drafted that guy in the 2nd round Damyean Dotson for that exact reason, but they can’t rely on him alone) You would know that if you were actually a Knicks fan. The Kings are arguably the one team just as dysfunctional as the Knicks. I think he does well here with a change of scenery and would love to have him

  3. Wolves take reddick. Get pj tucker. Trade Aldrich for cap space. Take mclemore and ty Lawson for depth.

    • Do they even have the cap space for Reddick? And are you really going to pay him all that money to come off the bench? Cause he’s not starting ahead of Butler or Wiggins.

        • They need to save some of that cap space for future raises for Wiggins and Towns though. They should definitely add some depth, but I don’t know if Reddick, and what would likely be a longer term deal worth a decent amount of money, is a good investment of cap space.

    they can’t have ah ton… the cap is only 99million this year… gave teague ah contract… picked up Butler contract… they may have ah Lil left… definitely enuff to sign reddick

    Can’t believe how much money Noel is going to get paid. He looks like Side Show Bob from the Simpsons.
