Professional career

Redhage went to Australia and joined the NW Tasmania Thunder for the 2004 SEABL season after going undrafted in the 2003 NBA draft. On his way to win the league MVP award, he received four player of the week awards. He was a key role in the Thunder's SEABL South Conference championship before progressing to the ABA National Final, where they were defeated 104-100 by the Cairns Marlins. In his rookie season, he averaged 35 points and 15 rebounds per game. He was then signed by the New Zealand Breakers for the 2004-05 NBL season. He got off to a good start to the season and was one of the team's top players in the early games. However, a form slump in November resulted in Redhage's court time being reduced, and he was finally released on December 6, 2004. He averaged 12.2 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 1.4 assists per game in 13 games for the Breakers.

For the 2005 season, the Redhage returned to the SEABL, this time for the Bendigo Braves. He was a contributor to the Braves win the SEABL South title before going on to lead them to the ABA National Championship. Redhage was named MVP of the conference grand final for his 43 points and 13 rebounds. For the second year in a row, he was named the SEABL South Most Valuable Player.

Redhage followed the Perth Wildcats after the 2005 SEABL season. On September 2, 2005, he made an immediate impact with his 27-point debut against the Adelaide 36ers. He then named Player of the Week for Round 9. He continued to average 20 points and nine rebounds per game during the 2005–06 NBL season, finishing second in the league's MVP voting while receiving All-NBL Second Team honors.

When Redhage scored 11 points and 15 assists against the West Sydney Razorbacks in November of the 2006–07 season, he became the first player in NBL history to have at least 30 points and 15 assists as part of a triple-double. He had 20 points and 20 rebounds against the Sydney Kings to win Player of the Week awards just days after this appearance.

In a game against the Adelaide 36ers on October 10, 2007, Redhage averaged a career-best 22.9 points per game and set his career high for points. He made the fastest Wildcat to reach 2,000 career points during the season, winning in 95 games and 3,400 minutes.

Between 2005-06 and 2008-09, Redhage averaged at least 19 points and eight rebounds each year, and subsequently earned a spot in the All-NBL Team for four seasons in a row. During this season, he was also a four-time Gordon Ellis Medalist for his service as the Wildcats Club MVP. Redhage, who spent his youth in the NBL as a force on the interior with a scoring prowess, earned the nickname "The Scoring Machine."

Redhage was named captain of the Wildcats ahead of the 2009–10 NBL season. In the new 40-minute game era, he averaged 15.1 points per game. He led the Wildcats to the championship, a 2–1 triumph over the Wollong Hawks, and earned his fifth straight Club MVP award. He was also selected to the All-NBL First Team.

Redhage re-signed with the Wildcats in April 2010 on a three-year contract. However, his season came to an end after dislocating his left hip during Adelaide's 77–76 loss to the Adelaide 36ers on January 23. It was initially believed that it would be a career-ending injury, but that there was always the possibility of him requiring a hip replacement. The fracture occurred after Redhage lunged for a contested ball in a way that punched the head of his femur through his pelvis, breaking the bone and dislocating the joint.

Following Redhage's injury, the Wildcats lost four games in a row, winning only two out of the remaining eight games. Despite missing the second half of the season, Redhage awarded Club MVP with Kevin Lisch for 2010-2011.

Redhage played in their season opener against the 36ers in Adelaide on October 8, 2011 and made a remarkable return to the Wildcats' lineup for the 2011–12 season. Redhage scored a game-high 26 points to lead the Wildcats to a 102-69 victory in the arena where his horrific injury occurred nine months before. Redhage went on to win Player of the Week for Round 2 after just barely missing out on the opening round's Player of the Week award after beating the Melbourne Tigers 92–76. After scoring 19 points and adding seven rebounds, two steals, one assist, and one blocked shot to help the Wildcats win by a 72–71 road victory over Melbourne, Redhage finished the season by winning Player of the Week for Round 25. The Wildcats qualified as the second seed in the NBL Finals with a 19-9 record. The Wildcats advanced to the NBL Grand Finals, where they met the New Zealand Breakers after defeating the Gold Coast Blaze 2–1 in the semi-finals. The Wildcats were down and out in Game 2 in Perth, after losing to the Breakers in Game 1 in Auckland. In Game 2, the Breakers led for a significant portion of the game, but the Wildcats snatched a dramatic one-point lead with less than a minute to play and defeated the Breakers 87-86. With a spectacular final-second block on Breakers guard C. J. Bruton, Redhage brought the NBL Grand Final to a third and deciding game. However, the Wildcats went on to lose Game 3 in Auckland, losing 79-73 after losing despite a team-high 18 points from Redhage.

Redhage went on to represent the South All-Stars in the NBL All-Star Game in Adelaide on December 22, 2012, after being named MVP of the NBL's preseason tournament. Damian Martin was brought to Redhage's co-captain role in January 2013. Redhage was named in the Perth Wildcats' 30th Anniversary All-Star team later this month. The Wildcats were back to the NBL Grand Final in 2012-2013, losing 2–0 to the New Zealand Breakers.

Redhage re-signed with the Wildcats on a three-year contract on May 7, 2013. Damian Martin was given the captaincy by the time he relinquished it to him later.

The Wildcats earned their third grand final series and fourth since 2010, defeating the Wollongong Hawks 2–1 in the semi-finals. They won the championship by beating the Adelaide 36ers 2–1. Redhage played 34 minutes in Game 3 and scored a team-high 16 points to win his second NBL title.

In his 300th NBL game, Redhage scored 15 points against the Wollongong Hawks on October 17, 2014, in his second game of the 2014–15 season. In a 78–74 loss to the Sydney Kings, Redhage played his 300th game as a Wildcat on December 18th. He was just the sixth member of the Wildcats' 300 Club, alongside Ricky Grace (482), James Crawford (371), Andrew Vlahov (349), and Mike Ellis (302).

In 2014–15, Redhage sustained a stress fracture in his right foot, which was missed the Wildcats' finals campaign. He appeared in all 28 regular-season games, but averaged a career-low 11.4 points per game.

Following the addition of center Nathan Jawai, Redhage transitioned to a bench position for the 2015-16 season. Redhage accepted the role change and helped keep a first-class second unit running. Redhage's 350th NBL game was played on January 25, 2016. With Casey Prather out of the game due to hamstring tightness, Redhage stepped into the starting lineup and scored two three-pointers to help the Wildcats beat the Cairns Taipans 84-74.

The Wildcats finished the regular season in second place to reach the finals for the 30th straight season, an unprecedented streak in any other Australian or American professional sport code. In the semi-finals, the Wildcats advanced to defeat the Illawarra Hawks 2–1 for their first appearance in the NBL Grand Final series, where they met the New Zealand Breakers. The Wildcats participated in Game 1 in Perth but then missed Game 2 in Auckland, resulting in a deciding Game 3 in Perth, where the Wildcats defeated the Breakers to win 7:52.

Redhage appeared in every game for the Wildcats but averaged under ten points per game for the first time in his career. In 34 games, he had 6.6 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 1.4 assists.

Redhage re-signed with the Wildcats in 2016-2017 NBL season on August 16th. Following the 2015–16 season, he never seriously considered retirement and had no intention to postpone 2016–17. He also hinted that he might play beyond 2016–17.

The Redhage boys won by 75–73 over the New Zealand Breakers, who gave him his first appearance in the NBL on October 14, 2016. He was just the third Wildcat to reach the 350-game mark, joining James Crawford (331) and Ricky Grace (472).

Redhage announced on January 30, 2017, nine days after his 36th birthday, that the 2016–17 season would be his last in the NBL. Redhage made his 372nd appearance for the Wildcats in Perth's 94-63 victory over the Brisbane Bullets on February 3nd, scoring six points off the bench.

The Wildcats continued to finish the regular season in third place with a 15-13 record, and after beating the Cairns Taipans in the semi-finals, they advanced to the NBL Grand Final for the sixth time in eight years. The Wildcats defeated the Illawarra Hawks 3–0 in the best-of-five series for their eighth NBL championship, while Redhage earned his fourth title to bow out of the NBL on a high. The Wildcats not only won their eighth championship, but they went back to back for the first time since 1990/1991. Redhage scored in a 95–86 victory in Game 3 on March 5, 2017 at Perth Arena, and ended the match with three points.
