NBA: Playoffs-Toronto Raptors at Philadelphia 76ers

JJ Redick has signed a two-year deal with the New Orleans Pelicans. This means that the Pelicans now have Redick, Zion Williamson, Jahlil Okafor, Frank Jackson and Brandon Ingram.

Things are likely to change between now and next season, but for now, that’s a pretty impressive concentration of Blue Devils and makes it an easy favorite for Duke fans.

Redick will also take pressure off the middle which should make Williamson, Ingram and Okafor that much more effective.

Incidentally, we don’t have the latest picture, but Okafor has absolutely transformed his body. It’s incredible what he’s done. The guy is now lean, mean and ripped.
