Redick, 38, met with franchise leaders in Toronto recently during the club’s initial round of interviews to replace Nick Nurse, who was dismissed after a 41-41 season.
Other names who have been linked to the Raptors’ wide-ranging coaching search include Las Vegas Aces coach Becky Hammon and NBA assistant coaches Kenny Atkinson, Charles Lee, Kevin Young, Mitch Johnson, Jordi Fernandez and Darko Rajakovic.
Redick, a guard, averaged 12.8 points in 940 games with six NBA teams from 2006-21. The Orlando Magic drafted him with the No. 11 overall pick in 2006 out of Duke, where he was a two-time ACC Player of the Year.
