The Orlando Magic have traded lethal shooter J.J. Redick to the Milwaukee Bucks. In return the Magic will receive Doron Lamb, Tobias Harris and Beno Udrih. Gustavo Ayon and Ish Smith will also be heading to the Bucks.This trade will ultimately hurt Redick's fantasy value as he won't be the best scorer on the team anymore. In Orlando he was able to take as many shots as he wanted because the Magic are 15-39 and simply lack scorers. He now moves over to Milwaukee where the Bucks sit in the 8th and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.Redick was seeing 31.5 minutes a night in Orlando, as the team had to deal with a ton of injuries all season long. Just to name a few - Glen Davis out 8-12 weeks with broken foot, Hedo Turkoglu various injuries and missed 36 games, Al Harrington has not played a game all year, and Jameer Nelson is now dealing with a patella tendon strain in his left knee.Redick will come off the bench for the Bucks as Monta Ellis and Brandon Jennings start at the guard positions, but will still get around 20-25 minutes a night. You can expect his scoring to go down though, as he was averaging 15 points a night in Orlando on nearly 12 shots. Both Ellis and Jennings shoot the ball 17 times a game and Ersan Ilyasova and Mike Dunleavy are right around 10 shots a night. So Redick will have to work for his shots and you should expect him to score about 10 points off the bench for the Bucks.With Jameer Nelson going down with a patella tendon strain in his left knee, it is possible he is required to miss some time. An MRI on Saturday will determine how long. But with that being said, the acquisition of Beno Udrih comes at a great time. If Nelson is required to miss any time then Udrih will step right in and start for the Magic, otherwise expect him to be Nelson's backup and play a similar role as he did with the Bucks.Other NBA Trade Dealine moves:New York Knicks trade Ronnie Brewer to the Oklahoma City ThunderAtlanta Hawks trade Anthony Morrow to Dallas Mavericks If he actually gets playing time, he can knock down 3 balls with the best of them!Charlotte Bobcats trade Hakim Warrick to Orlando Magic for Josh McRobertsHe could cut into Andrew Nicholson minutesOklahoma City Thunder trade Eric Maynor to the BlazersShould see some run behind Damian LillardWashington Wizards trade Jordan Crawford to Boston for Leandro BarbosaBusy backcourt in Boston but could become valuable down the stretchPhoenix Suns trade Sebastian Telfair to the RaptorsShould steal all of John Lucas minutes and could even play some shooting guard
BEST OF MAXIM
