NBA trade rumor: Bucks end pursuit of J.J. Redick, according to report

J.J. Redick - Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Orlando's asking price of a first-round draft pick was too rich for Milwaukee.

The Milwaukee Bucks have ended trade discussions with the Orlando Magic regarding Orlando shooting guard J.J. Redick, reports Lance Allan of the Milwaukee-based television station TMJ4. "Hearing [...] J.J. Redick talks are over," Allan writes.

The sticking point for Milwaukee is the future first-round pick Orlando wants in any Redick deal. The Bucks didn't want to part with one, so either they or the Magic left the negotiating table.

In an online chat Wednesday, ESPN scribe Chad Ford explained why teams might be reluctant to part with valuable assets for players, like Redick, who are in the last year of their contracts:

The other issue [...] is that if you trade for a player in the last few months of his contract and give up anything of value, you almost have to do anything to re-sign them the next summer. That puts all of the leverage in the hands of the player's agent.

Arn Tellem, the agent who represents Redick, will reportedly seek $10 million annually for his client in July.

The NBA trade deadline is Thursday at 3 PM Eastern.
