JJ Redick may be gone from Philly and the Sixers, but the New Orleans Pelican sniper still knows a thing or two about shooting.
On Ben Simmons getting a jumper:
“Ben works. He worked all of last offseason. I witnessed him during the season get his shots up after practice every day. I think he’ll be able to shoot at some point. A lot of it is confidence.
“He can shoot a high enough clip when he’s shooting spot shots that it should translate to shooting threes in a game.
“The video that went viral, looks to me like he’s shooting with some confidence there.”
