Magic Won’t Hesitate to Trade J.J. Redick?
(J.J.) Redick is in the final year of his three-year, $19.6 million deal that pays him $6.19 million this season. Preferably, Redick wants to remain with the Magic, with whom he has spent his seven NBA seasons and emerged as a more than serviceable shooting guard.
But Redick also wants a raise. How much are the rebuilding Magic willing to pay Redick? Or the better question is: how much is Redick willing to accept to remain with Orlando?
If it emerges that Redick and Orlando can’t find common ground on a salary, don’t be surprised if the Magic trade him by the Feb. 21 trade deadline. If the Magic can’t keep him, they want to get something for him.
