J.J. Redick Lands Coveted NBA Broadcasting Gig

Redick has become one of the league's more popular young broadcasters, bringing a unique voice to the game while relying on his experience to give viewers an inside look.

He's one of the best Blue Devils players in school history, playing as a starter for four years while averaging just under 20 points per game while shooting over 40% from beyond the arc.

In a 17-year professional career, Redick was known as one of the best shooters in the league with a dependable veteran savvy as he played for six different teams before retiring at the conclusion of the 2020-21 season.

The Duke great will join Doris Burke and Mike Breen's broadcasting crew, replacing Doc Rivers, who joined the Milwaukee Bucks as head coach following the dismissal of Adrian Griffin.

We'll likely see more of him during broadcasts moving forward, a joy for Blue Devils fans excited to relive Redick's greatest moments. He's an excellent broadcaster, and now he'll get the chance to strut his stuff on the biggest stages yet again.
