The Chicago Bulls and the Indiana Pacers are two more teams to express an interest in trading for Orlando Magic shooting guard J.J. Redick, reports Alex Kennedy of HOOPSWORLD. His Twitter post comes just hours after ESPN's Marc Stein indicated that the Milwaukee Bucks, another Central Division club, are also interested in landing the Duke product before the NBA trade deadline of February 21st.

As Kennedy points out, Redick nearly joined the Bulls as a free agent in 2010, signing a three-year offer sheet with the club. Orlando matched the that offer sheet to retain his services, and its investment in him has paid off: Redick is averaging career-bests in scoring, rebounding, assists, and field-goal percentage and has been arguably its best overall player in the 2012/13 season.

Redick is set to become a free agent on July 1st.
