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

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

After being sidelined with a left quad contusion for two weeks, Los Angeles Clippers guard J.J. Redick has returned to practice and is expected to play in the preseason game against the Sacramento Kings on Friday. "My assumption is Friday would be a go," Redick said Tuesday. "There might be some minutes restrictions but there was no residual soreness from yesterday so I should be a go." ESPN.com

The feud started, as these things often do, with a Tobacco Road rivalry. A fight at Michael Jordan's camp followed, as did an injury scare. But when J.J. Redick joined the Los Angeles Clippers in July to become Chris Paul's new backcourt mate … well, both Redick and Paul knew it was finally time to end their dislike of each other. "We have actually had a chance to become real close, real quick," Paul told Yahoo Sports. "Who would have thought after the battles we had in college." Said Redick: "We connected right away." Yahoo! Sports

The rivalry between Paul and Redick began when they both played in the Atlantic Coast Conference at schools just a 90-minute drive from each other: Redick starred at Duke from 2002-06 and Paul was at Wake Forest from 2003-05. "We had some battles at Wake Forest," Redick said. "The game I kind of got into it with him our team had like three or four technicals." Said Paul: "Before I got to know him he was no friend of mine. It is what it is. But that's how it was in college." Yahoo! Sports
