In exchange for Redick, the Bucks send Doron Lamb, Tobias Harris and Beno Udrih to Orlando. The Bucks also get Gustavo Ayon and Ishmael Smith from Orlando as part of the deal.
There was growing speculation that shooting guard J.J. Redick could stay with the Orlando Magic after numerous teams, including the San Antonio Spurs, pulled out of the hunt for the former Duke Blue Devils star. However, with the trade deadline passing within the next 15 minutes, the Magic are reportedly working on a three-team deal that includes the Milwaukee Bucks and an unnamed team.
The player at the center of the three-team trade is Redick.
