With less than an hour remaining before the 2013 NBA trading deadline, the Orlando Magic have only three suitors with whom to deal regarding shooting guard J.J. Redick, reports David Aldridge of NBA.com. Those teams are the Indiana Pacers, Milwaukee Bucks, and Philadelphia 76ers; the San Antonio Spurs, whose pursuit of Redick was first reported early Thursday morning, are out of the running.

Reports in the days leading up to the deadline have indicated that Orlando wants no less than a future first-round draft choice for Redick. However, given that Redick will be an unrestricted free agent when the season ends, opposing teams are reluctant to part with a high-value asset to obtain a player who may not have a long-term future with them.

The NBA trade deadline is Thursday at 3 PM Eastern.
