Tomorrow night's game against the Bobcats could be J.J. Redick's last home game as a member of the Magic but the shooting guard has reason to be optimistic about his future in Orlando. Redick says that General Manager Rob Hennigan has told him that the team is "open" to re-signing him when he becomes a free agent this summer, writes Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel.
The guard went on to say that Hennigan has stayed in touch with Redick and his agent, Arn Tellem, in recent weeks. At the same time, he says that he is only cautiously optimistic and refuses to get his hopes up about a lucrative new deal in Orlando.
“This is a business. I have to make a business decision. And I know this from experience, regardless of any personal feelings or any emotional attachment to anything, a team is going to do what they feel is best for the team. And there won’t be any hard feelings if I get traded in three days or if they elect not to re-sign me this summer," the 28-year-old said.
Earlier today, Robbins' colleague Brian Schmitz wrote that the Magic would be more willing to move Redick if a team was willing to take on Al Harrington and/or Hedo Turkoglu in a deal. Of course, the odds of that happening aren't great.
