NBA trade rumors: Bucks interested in J.J. Redick, according to report

J.J. Redick - USA TODAY Sports

Milwaukee wants to make the veteran Magic guard part of its long-term core.

The Milwaukee Bucks are the latest team to express an interest in acquiring Orlando Magic guard J.J. Redick before the 2013 NBA trading deadline of February 21st, reports ESPN's Marc Stein.

Milwaukee is concerned that Redick, a pending free agent, will leave the Bucks after a half-season if it trades for him, which is why Stein says the Bucks are "assessing their ability to retain [the] sharpshooter" over the long haul. "Bucks naturally wanna know they can retain [the] free agent-to-be," reports Stein.

Stein indicates that Orlando wants at least one expiring contract and a future first-round pick in exchange for Redick, arguably its best and most consistent player. The Duke product is averaging career-highs in per-game scoring (15.3 points), rebounding (2.5), and assists (4.5). His 45.2 percent shooting also represents a career-best.
