JJ Redick Signs Deal With ESPN As NBA Analyst

JJ Redick announced earlier this morning that he's signing a deal with ESPN as an NBA analyst. The 15-year veteran sharpshooter already ran a successful podcast "Old Man & The Three" and did a nice job, so this seems like a no brainer.

And honestly, ESPN signing anyone with talent is a massive upgrade for that Disney circus show. It's only up from here.

We always knew Redick was popular since his days under coach K at Duke, but blue check Twitter praise came raining down following his announcement.

Redick is expected to debut as a studio analyst Nov. 3 in a matchup between the Brooklyn Nets and Atlanta Hawks.

"After 15 years in the NBA, I am excited to take what I have learned on the court and be able to provide my insight and strong opinions about the game I love," Redick said. "I am thrilled to have found a place on the biggest platform in sports, ESPN. I look forward to starting my post-playing career with such an incredible organization."

Congratulations to JJ Redick on a tremendous career and we anticipate he can't save ESPN entirely, however he'll be an improvement.
