Redick is one of the first players Clippers coach Doc Rivers targeted when he came to Los Angeles. He had unsuccessfully tried to make deals to get him when he was coaching the Boston Celtics. He knew the Clippers lacked a 3-point threat last season and there was nobody better to stretch the court than Redick. He also knew he was getting something more when he talked to former Orlando Magic coach Stan Van Gundy. "When I was talking about him with Stan Van Gundy, he said, 'You think you're getting a shooter, but you're shocked that you're going to get so much more,'" Rivers said. "He's a playmaker. He's tough and he's always in the right spots on defense and the best part about him is that he tells everybody the truth, even the coaches, and that's a good thing. ESPN.com

J.J. Redick returned to the starting lineup for the Los Angeles Clippers for the first time in six weeks Friday night against the Los Angeles Lakers. "He made a lot of shots in practice, the last couple of practices," Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. "He may have been able to play against Boston [on Wednesday], but we went the extra practice with him. He's ready to play, but I didn't know if he was ready to start, but the game the other night and our second unit's inability to score told me let's get Jamal [Crawford] back in that group as soon as we can."

J.J. Redick, who is out with a broken right hand and torn ligaments on the right side of his wrist, now has a soft cast on his hand and not the hard cast anymore. Redick, a right-handed shooter, has not been shooting the ball yet. "He's close too, would be my guess," Rivers said. "I think it's a couple of weeks, maybe." Los Angeles Times

Not everything was going smoothly. In order to land Bledsoe, the Suns had come up with a three-way trade that would give the Clippers a pair of veteran shooters, Milwaukee free agent J.J. Redick and the Suns’ Jared Dudley, with the Bucks getting second-round draft picks and Bledsoe landing in Phoenix. But Redick had been offered a hefty four-year deal by the Timberwolves, and was close to signing it, which would have torpedoed the entire Bledsoe package. So Suns president Lon Babby — himself a former agent — got on the phone with Arn Tellem, the agent for Redick, and urged him to hold off on signing with Minnesota. McDonough contacted Doc Rivers, the former Celtics coach with whom McDonough had worked in Boston, selling him on the proposal. By that afternoon, all sides had come to an agreement. Sporting News

DeMarcus Cousins was not a happy camper after being called for a loose ball foul when J.J. Redick fell to the floor on this rebound attempt Friday night. As the game resumed, DeMarcus Cousins had words with Redick, who appeared to tell the Kings forward he was okay and followed up with a handshake gesture, which Cousins blew off. Redick’s reaction following the diss was priceless. beyondthebuzzer.com

David Aldridge: What have the new guys brought to the team so far that you needed? CP: Man, I think what we get from J.J. is a lot of grit. I don't think a lot of people recognize that when they see him play, how hard he plays, how much he hates to lose. And JD, he's just a great pro. He plays hard. He knows his job. He's just a great guy to have on your team, and in the locker room. That's what makes our team special. What gives us an opportunity is that we have a great mix of guys. We've got, me and DeAndre (Jordan), we're probably the hot heads. We sort of go nuts in here. But then we've got guys that bring the calm, all the different NBA.com
