J.J. Redick - USA TODAY Sports
Denver is interested in acquiring the veteran two-guard, but may have cooled its pursuit of him in recent days.
Add the Denver Nuggets to the list of teams to express an interest in Orlando Magic shooting guard J.J. Redick. According to Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio, Denver "supposedly wouldn't mind" acquiring the veteran sharpshooter before the NBA trading deadline, which is Thursday, February 21st, at 3 PM Eastern.
Amico, citing "sources," says trade talks involving Redick "have all but disappeared" in recent days because Redick "indicated he wants to stay with the Magic."
Redick, now in his seventh season, has spent his entire professional career with the Magic. He's due to be an unrestricted free agent when the season ends. Orlando will have to decide whether to re-sign him in July, work out a sign-and-trade deal, or let him walk outright. It can also choose to trade him before Thursday.
Redick is averaging 15.3 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 4.4 assists per game.
