Orlando Magic guard J.J. Redick has been a player that has been expected to be moved by Thursday’s NBA trade deadline, but while the trade offers are piling in, there is no guarantee that Redick will be moved.
Per Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski:
Orlando is still discussing deals for guard J.J. Redick, but league sources don’t rule out the Magic holding onto him for rest of season.

This is a different opinion than Sports Illustrated NBA Insider Chris Mannix who said, “I think J.J. Redick gets moved. I think Orlando sort of sifts through the offers and come Thursday early afternoon will take the best one on the table. If the Magic can get a first-round pick — even if it’s a late first-round pick — in return for J.J. Redick, they’ll take it, if for no other reason that I don’t get any sense that Orlando is going to pay J.J. between the $7-10 million per year he’s going to be looking for in a 4- or 5-year deal.”
With the differing opinions surrounding Redick’s future in Orlando, there is only one way to find out who is correct.
