The Philadelphia 76ers reached the playoffs for the first time since 2012 during the 2017-18 campaign, and they reportedly elected to keep a primary member of their rotation Monday.

Philadelphia reportedly re-signed sharpshooter JJ Redick to a one-year contract worth between $12 to $13 million, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Redick previously laced it up for the Orlando Magic, Milwaukee Bucks and Los Angeles Clippers before joining Philadelphia on a one-year, $23 million contract in 2017.

In a league where three-point shooting is king, Redick has been right up there with the best, hitting 41.5 percent of his looks from deep during his 12-year career. He's also developed into more of a playmaker after initially looking like solely a three-point shooter during his early years in Orlando.

Redick has averaged double-digit scoring totals in eight straight seasons and posted at least 15 points per night in each of the last five campaigns.

While he will be 34 years old throughout the 2018-19 campaign, he showed no signs of slowing in 2017-18. The Duke product scored a career-high 17.1 points per game and shot 42 percent from three-point range (on a career-high 6.6 attempts), thriving alongside Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons.

When teams doubled Embiid on the blocks or collapsed when Simmons penetrated, Redick was able to find his spots from distance.

Redick is the epitome of a playoff-tested veteran. In fact, he's made the playoffs every season he's been in the league, including an NBA Finals when he was with the Magic.
