Magic Want Picks, Young Talent For Redick

January 26 2013 at 12:38pm CDT By Sean Highkin

Ric Bucher of reports (via Sulia) that the Orlando Magic are asking for picks and young talent on a rookie contract if they are to deal J.J. Redick before the February 21 trade deadline.

Bucher also says that, while the Celtics and Pacers are known to be interested in acquiring Redick, they lack the pieces to meet the Magic's asking price. As such, it is unlikely that he will be dealt before the deadline.

Redick, 28, is averaging 14.9 PPG and 4.4 APG, both career highs, in his final season with the Magic. He is due to be an unrestricted free agent this summer.

  1. The Celtics should be blowing up their team, instead of adding pieces. They are very far from competing. Instead work on a young core of Rondo, Avery and Sullinger and build around them for the future.

  2. HAS THE ORLANDO MAGIC GONE CRAZY AGAIN!!!! I hope they don’t get rid of Orlando’s BEST….You can say GOODBYE to a lot of the fan base if J. J. or Jameer Goes…

  3. Been a Magic season ticket holder since day #1 and I am so disgusted with us getting rid of our best players for nothing! Ryan Anderson, Bass, etc. now JJ!!! Give me a break!
