The Orlando Magic have traded J.J. Redick, Gustavo Ayon, and Ish Smith to the Milwaukee Bucks for Tobias Harris, Beno Udrih, and Doron Lamb.
Prior to the trade Redick said, "I can sit here and say I don't want to come back, I can sit here and say I do want to come back. Ultimately, it's their decision.”
Redick is currently playing in the final year of his three-year contract and will be eligible to sign a new contract after this season. It remains uncertain whether the Bucks would want to resign Redick to a long term deal or whether Redick would even want to sign with them, but this was clearly a move on the Magic’s part to dump his salary and not to sign him long term.
