Is JJ Redick on the Trade Block Before February Deadline?

The Orlando Magic don’t have any illusions of winning much of anything this season. But they haven’t given up on the possibility of a strong run to the playoffs in the East. Coming off a strong win against the Timberwolves last night, rumors are a buzz that the Magic may be interested in moving sharpshooter JJ Redick if they get a decent offer. The problem is, so far there has been nothing resembling a decent offer…

One: after a rough 5-10 start, Orlando has gone 6-3, a burst not coincidentally launched by a soul-satisfying win over former teammate Dwight Howard and the Lakers. If Redick is moved, it will be for a younger talent and/or a draft pick and the Magic wouldn’t mind staying competitive for as long as they can this season. Two: as of right now, the potential suitors aren’t anywhere near making their best offer. The likeliest trade partners: Chicago, Memphis, Minnesota, Milwaukee, Utah. The Bulls were interested in Redick as a FA and Memphis supposedly expressed recent interest.
