JJ Redick Los Angeles Lakers Coach: Contract, Salary, Net Worth, Record, Wife

Note: Updated on Wednesday, June 26, 2024.

After leaving the NBA in 2021, JJ Redick became a top sports media star and even started a podcast with LeBron James.

JJ Redick’s New Role

Redick couldn’t resist the call of basketball and left his media career to become the Los Angeles Lakers‘ 29th coach.

Salary Details

In June, Redick signed a four-year deal with the Lakers worth eight million dollars per season. This is quite high for a first-time head coach. For comparison, Adrian Griffin got four million per year from the Milwaukee Bucks. Mike Brown, with many wins under his belt, recently secured an extension at 8.5 million dollars annually.

Earnings as an NBA Player

During his 15 seasons in the NBA, playing for teams like the Bucks and Clippers among others, Redick earned a hefty sum of money. HoopsHype reports he made about $118.3 million (or $150.5 million adjusted for inflation).

Fans think this is well-deserved given his skills on the court.

Net Worth

Currently, Redick’s net worth stands at around $50 million. Most of this came from his time as an NBA player. He also owns a successful media production company that adds to his wealth.


Coaching Record

Redick has no prior coaching experience; hence he starts with a clean slate of zero wins and losses. If LeBron stays healthy next season, we expect him to have around 50 wins!

Family Life

Redick married Chelsea Kilgore in 2010 after dating since 2006. They have two sons named Kai and Knox together.
