J.J. Redick, who now lives in Brooklyn and worked out with the Nets over the off-season, is looking for a multi-year contract worth between $16 and $18 million, according to Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times.
And Turner, who covered Redick as a Clippers beat writer, reports Redick has multiple suitors.

Houston is the new possibility. In recent weeks, Brooklyn and Philadelphia have been rumored as destinations. The Rockets, of course, just traded for Chris Paul, planning to pair him with James Harden. They also have shooting specialist Eric Gordon, just named NBA Sixth Man of the Year. Gordon, 28, is five years younger than Redick.
Later Friday, another possibility emerged after Minnesota traded Ricky Rubio to Utah. John Krawczynski, the AP reporter covering the T’Wolves, tweeted.

Redick would be attractive to the Nets because of his shooting and his veteran presence in what’s likely to be a very young locker room. Jeremy Lin told Chinese sports site in May that he had invited Redick to work out at HSS Training Center.
The 6’4” Duke product has told the Clippers he will not be returning to L.A.
