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.

The Pelicans are sending JJ Redick and Nicolo Melli to the Mavericks for James Johnson and Wes Iwundu, sources told ESPN's Andrew Lopez.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) The Dallas Mavericks have acquired veteran shooting guard JJ Redick and Italian forward Nicolo Melli from New Orleans in a trade Thursday that sent power forward James Johnson, small forward Wesley Iwundu and a second-round draft choice to the Pelicans, a person familiar with the deal said. The move gives the playoff-contending Mavericks veteran depth and a player in Redick who has been an elite 3-point shooter for most of his career.
