Chicago Bulls Reporter Sam Smith Is "Hearing" Orlando Magic Will Keep J.J. Redick

A reader submitted a question about J.J. Redick to Sam Smith of Bulls.com, the official website of the Chicago Bulls, and Smith's response should encourage Orlando Magic fans worried that their team might let Redick's offer sheet from Chicago go unmatched.

I've been hearing lately that Orlando will match.

I realize Smith doesn't exactly have a sterling reputation, given his tendency to propose wild, implausible trades throughout his career. But there's a distinction between writing that trading Chris Paul for Kirk Hinrich makes sense for the New Orleans Hornets and actual reporting. One is speculation; the other is more concrete.
