Shooting Guard for the Milwaukee Bucks
JJ Redick Biography
Shooting guard for the Orlando Magic, JJ Redick was born June 24, 1984 in Cookeville, Tennessee. He was selected 11th overall by the Orlando Magic in the 2006 NBA Draft. During his collegiate years, Redick played for Duke University. He is the Atlantic Coast Conference's all-time leading scorer. Duke retired his jersey number, 4, on February 4, 2007.
Playing primarily at the shooting guard position, Redick is known for his accurate free throw and three-point shooting. He set ACC records for most career points, most consecutive free throws made, and most career ACC tournament points; and set several Duke records, including most points in a single season.
Redick was selected with the 11th pick in the 2006 NBA Draft by the Orlando Magic. Pre-draft scouting reports praised Redick's perimeter shooting and basketball intelligence, but questioned his defensive ability and speculated that he may not be tall enough to create his own shots in the NBA. This scouting report was highlighted when Duke played LSU in the 2006 NCAA tournament. LSU's Garrett Temple, a 6'5" guard known for his athleticism and a large wingspan chased Redick throughout the game. Taken out of his normal rhythm, Redick, the number two scorer in the nation at the time, ended with one of his worst performances shooting 3-for-18 from the field and scoring 11 points as Duke lost.
In an interview with the Charlotte Observer, Redick said, "I think I'll be a role player like 80 percent of the players in the league are. I don't expect to be a star, I'll just shoot, be a team player."He moved up into the backup shooting guard position behind well-known veteran and Duke alum Grant Hill. As a professional, Redick was getting limited playing time, but after an injury to Hill, Redick moved up in the rotation. Redick, compared to the rest of his rookie season, caught his stride in the beginning of February, hitting double figures in 4 out of 5 games and averaging 9 points in all. His career high however is only 18 points.
Redick hopes to make an impact as a premier shooting guard in the NBA for years to come.
