JJ Redick and the Mavericks are eyeing the postseason as the newly acquired guard continues to recover from a right heel injury.
JJ Redick doesn't have an ideal number of games in mind to get ready for the playoffs with the Dallas Mavericks, who were thinking postseason when they acquired the shooting guard with an expiring contract. ''The ideal number is the most amount of games possible,'' said Redick, who is recovering from a right heel injury that required an injection and last played March 3. The Mavericks made a deal just before the trading deadline March 25, getting Redick and Nicolo Melli from New Orleans for James Johnson, Wes Iwundu, a 2021 second-round draft pick and cash.
JJ Redick criticized the Pelicans' front office for the way it handled his trade to the Mavericks, saying that New Orleans executive David Griffin "did not honor his word" to help put Redick in a favorable situation where he would be closer to his family.
Redick says Pelicans executives weren't honest about trading him.
Redick wanted to play on a team closer to his family in Brooklyn
