NBA Free Agents 2013: Orlando Magic's J.J. Redick Ranks Highly in SB Nation List

Douglas Jones-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

J.J. Redick is the Orlando Magic's top free agent in 2013.

With training camps just a month away, most of the NBA's top free agents have already signed, so SB Nation NBA editor Tom Ziller recently turned his attention to 2013's free-agent class in a five-part series ranking the top 50 free agents to-be. Orlando Magic guard J.J. Redick comes away looking pretty good in Ziller's list, ranking 23rd overall, one spot behind Milwaukee Bucks scoring guard Monta Ellis and just ahead of Dallas Mavericks gadget forward Shawn Marion.

"After a solid shooting season, he's now a career 40 percent on three-pointers, and last year he took four per game," Ziller writes. "His sixth man role is appropriate -- he could have a Jason Terry-like career if he were to get a little more greedy, which frankly should be easy to do with Dwight Howard gone."

The only swingmen Ziller ranks ahead of Redick are James Harden (3rd overall among all 2013 free-agents), Manu Ginóbili (5th), Tyreke Evans (8th), Andre Iguodala (10th), DeMar DeRozan (14th), Tony Allen (18th), Kevin Martin (21st), and Ellis.

Redick is entering the last season of a three-year, $19.69 million contract he signed with the Chicago Bulls as a restricted free agent. Orlando matched the offer to retain his services. The Duke product has spent his entire six-year career with the Magic, averaging 8.4 points, 1.7 rebounds, and 1.6 assists in 20.4 minutes per game. His per-game scoring has increased in each of the last five seasons.
