Is JJ Redick on the Trade Block Before February Deadline?

Anklesnap December 18, 2012 Rumors 2 Comments

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.
