NBA Rumors: Magic Trading JJ Redick to Spurs, Bulls, Pacers or Bucks?
The Orlando Magic are currently considering several trade proposals for starting shooting guard, J.J. Redick. While management has made it no secret that it loves the 28-year-old and the growth he experienced under Stan Van Gundy, all involved also understand the reality of how much money he will be expecting this summer. The Magic are willing to pay Redick, but not as much as he will demand.
Over the past few days Redick has been linked to the Milwaukee Bucks, Indiana Pacers, Chicago Bulls and several other teams. It is clear why each one would want the former Duke star, however, it slightly less evident what they could really offer for him. At the moment Orlando is looking to get back at the very least a first round pick. Chances are, though, the final asking price will actually be even higher.
According to a recent report from Marc Stein of ESPN, the San Antonio Spurs are now officially in the J.J. Redick Sweepstakes.
Add one more team to list of those showing interest in @jjredick: San Antonio. Magic, from start, have wanted no less than a first for him

The Spurs are looking to be a player today, one way or the other, so it wouldn’t be all that surprising to see them finagle a deal for Redick. That being said, there are better proposals than what San Antonio is offering on the table from other teams.
