Orlando Magic shooting guard J.J. Redick, who will be a free agent at season’s end, is drawing interest from the San Antonio Spurs, Indiana Pacers, Milwaukee Bucks, Detroit Pistons and Washington Wizards according to ESPN’s Chris Broussard. The Magic have made it clear that they don’t want to trade Redick, however, they may have trouble passing up on an offer based around young talent and draft picks.
The Magic have already received offers of first-round picks for Redick, but they have not been in the range that Orlando is looking for. They want picks from the top half of the first, not bottom half. In fact, sources say they would prefer high second-round picks to late firsts because the contracts aren’t guaranteed.
