Report: five teams express interest in Michael Redd

As teams finish rounding out their roster, they tend to go with one of two kinds of players for spots 11-15 at the end of the bench — young players with potential they think might develop, or a veteran they think can provide a little help on the court and be good in the locker room.

Michael Redd is the latter. He will be just 33 next season but his knees are much older than that. Last season in Phoenix he gave them 8.2 points per game in 15 minutes, but the once feared sharpshooter hit just 40 percent of his shots and 31.8 percent from three. He’s not efficient anymore. Notice the Suns (not exactly an NBA contender) are not bringing him back.

However, there are teams interested in Redd, reports Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio.

Apparently no interest from Cavs on Ohio guy Michael Redd, but teams mentioned as possible suitors include the… Wizards, Nuggets, Grizzlies, Bulls, and yes, Thunder, who still have a spot available in the backcourt after Derek Fisher‘s departure.

Take this all with a grain of salt, this likely comes an agent or someone in the business of promoting Redd. Also know that he would get a veteran’s minimum deal only so long as the GM in question is sober.

Some team will grab him, likely close to the start of camp. That list could expand a little if a team suffers an injury at guard and is suddenly looking for depth at the spot, but basically he is not going to be a guy you want on your fantasy team anymore.

Some team will probably pick up Fisher, too.

    Looking at the list of teams,respect to the others ! But being the bulls would be a second choice, the choice should be easy!

      Michael Redd is at the end of his career and 2 out of the 5 teams are rebuilding! Although the grizzlies are a decent team the thunder and bulls are contenders!

    Redd is at that point in his career where he joins the Spurs and wins a ring as a benchwarmer.
