Clippers acquire Redick, Dudley in deal for Caron Butler and Eric Bledsoe

The Clippers began to rework the team that will surround Chris Paul and Blake Griffin on Tuesday by trading guard Eric Bledsoe and forward Caron Butler to Phoenix in a three-team deal that will bring them guard Jared Dudley and J.J. Redick.
Dudley comes from Phoenix, where the shooting guard averaged 10.9 points per game last season. Redick, another shooter, comes from the Bucks, who will receive a second-round draft pick from both the Clippers and the Suns.
Redick will reportedly agree to a four-year, $27 million contract. Dudley has three years left on a contract that pays him $4.25 million per season.
The deal immediately addresses the Clippers’ outside shooting shortcomings, which will open up the floor for Paul and his pick-and-roll game.
