Competition hotting up for Magic’s Redick ahead of deadline on Thursday.
With the NBA trade rumour mill in full flow on deadline day, it appears as though Orlando Magic’s shooting guard J.J. Redick is a popular man.
According to ESPN’s Marc Stein, the San Antonio Spurs have joined the race for the three-point specialist, joining the likes of the New York Knicks, Chicago Bulls and Indiana Pacers looking to bring him in.
Despite the risk of losing Redick as a free agent in the summer, the Magic appear to be against losing him on Thursday, with no reports suggesting they are desperate to talk.
Looking at Orlando’s roster, if they were to lose Redick they would arguably be looking for a first round pick and a young talent to boost their hopes.
They have had a torrid season so far after losing Dwight Howard in the off-season, with the Charlotte Bobcats the only other team in the Eastern Conference with a worse record.
Elsewhere, according to ESPN Radio’s Chris Vernon, the Memphies Grizzlies are also making a late push for the sharp-shooter.
The deadline passes at 8pm GMT, and there is likely to be a scramble for Redick before all is said and done.
