The Celtics, according to Marc Stein of ESPN, are interested in persuing J.J. Redick who currently plays for the Orlando Magic.Hearing Celts, even before season-worst 7-for-32 shooting from 15+ feet in NYK loss, have ramped up their interest in Magic's J.J. Redickabout 3 hours ago via UberSocial for BlackBerryReplyRetweetFavorite@ESPNSteinLineMarc Stein Size obviously Celts' priority if they do deal before Feb. 21 trade deadline but word is they hope to work way into Redick mix if they canabout 3 hours ago via UberSocial for BlackBerryReplyRetweetFavorite@ESPNSteinLineMarc SteinReasons this makes sense:Boston has been longing for the floor spacing Allen provided since he left for Miami (I just went out there and said his name, I think it is time to start the healing process).He is under a reasonable salary and has been playing well.Reasons this doesn’t make sense:He is one of the only good things the Magic have going for them, why would they trade him when they are trying to rebuild?The Celtics already have shoot guards, their real need is in the front court.J.J. Redick is averaging a career high in points per game (14.9) and assists per game (4.4) and could be a huge addition to the Celtics.  That being said, the Magic know that and it might be difficult to pry him loose.Here was my first attempt using the 3-team implications Stein alluded to, but speaking frankly I don’t know if the Magic or Nuggets say yes to that.  Happy trade machining.
