One of the biggest dominoes on the NBA trade market has finally fallen, with the Milwaukee Bucks landing guard J.J. Redick from the Orlando Magic for Doron Lamb, Tobias Harris and Beno Udrich, according to Y! Sports Adrian Wojnarowski:
Orlando has traded J.J Redick to the Bucks, league source tells Y!
— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) February 21, 2013
Redick will be an unrestricted free agent this summer and is having a solid all-around season, averaging 15.1 points, 4.a assists game while shooting .390 from three-point range. The Magic were under pressure to trade Redick or risk losing him for nothing in free agency as he was unlikely to re-sign with the team.
Orlando acquires a couple of young prospects in Lamb and Harris and an experienced point gouard in Beno Udrich in the deal.
Acquiring Redick will give the Bucks a shooter to compliment point guard Brandon Jennings and combo guard Monta Ellis and form a potentially potent three-guard rotation. The Bucks are clinging to the eighth seed with a three-game lead on the Sixers.
