It did not take long for the first trade rumors to start taking shape after the December 15 opening of the trade season. The Magic figured to be a big part of many trade discussions thanks to the "transition" the franchise is in after Dwight Howard's departure.
That has meant anyone is on the table as the Magic try to figure out what kind of team and franchise they will become.
Their most valuable trade asset is undoubtedly J.J. Redick, who is on the last year of a three-year deal that has netted him more than $18 million. Redick is the kind of player that could help a team in the Playoff hunt because of his ability to make shots and his burgeoning ability to make plays with the ball in his hands -- he is posting a career-high 26.0 percent assist rate.
What playoff team would not want that?
Ric Bucher of Comcast SportsNet reports several teams are interested in the sharpshooter, but the Magic are not open to any ofers being made right now.

The Orlando Magic received a scare when Glen Davis was fouled and dislocated his left shoulder late in Wednesday's victory over the Washington Wizards on Wednesday.
On Thursday, an MRI revealed a shoulder sprain. The injury will keep Davis sidelined four to six weeks, but will not require season-ending surgery.

Glen Davis has always played with a certain amount of reckless abandon. His driving into the lane looking for contact and a chance to put a shot up at the rim is nothing new. Seeing Davis on the floor, writhing in pain and unable to collect himself and get back up was the concerning part.

Rumors of Glen Davis' demise may have been greatly exaggerated. The Magic received some very encouraging news Thursday, a day after Davis was writhing in pain and holding his shoulder late in a win over the Wizards on Wednesday.
Everyone feared the worst, but Rob Hennigan announced that Davis suffered a shoulder sprain and there was no structural damage to his shoulder.
The final two possessions for the Magic summed up their night and erased any warm feelings from a 10-0 run that turned what might have been a runaway fourth quarter into a tight battle.
Down by three points, J.J. Redick got into the paint and tried a risky pass to Gustavo Ayon. Ayon fumbled the ball away for the Magic's 17th turnover of the game. A missed DeMar DeRozan...

Fans of the Orlando Magic came into this season feeling pretty dubious, to say the least. There isn't much star power on this team and not a single marquee name can be found on our roster. Somehow, the Magic have managed to do the unexpected: win games. They are currently 12-13, good for 3rd in the Southeast Division. This puts them a half a game ahead of the LA Lakers, the...

There was a giddiness in the Magic locker room following Monday's win over the Timberwolves. This win just felt good. It took a special effort and revealed a lot about this Orlando team.
There is, of course, just one question left to answer: Yes, this team can compete day-to-day and game-to-game, but is this is a .500 team, is this a winning team? Is this a Playoff team?...
