Phoenix made sure to do their due diligence on Redd’s left knee, having it examined by team doctors on Tuesday as well due to his extensive history of problems with it. The former All-Star has played in a meager 61 games over the past three years along with two season-ending knee surgeries; Redd tore his ACL and MCL back in January of 2009 and once more a year later.
In the 10 games he did play in last year, Redd scored 4.4 points in 13.4 minutes for the Milwaukee Bucks. Luckily the Suns are known around the league to have a top notch medical staff who have lots of knowledge of dealing with aging stars such as Steve Nash, Grant Hill, and Shaquille O’Neal. Maybe Redd can reinvigorate himself in the desert as well.
