Hill: "If I get traded, I quit"

An NBA coaching source who does not toss trade rumors around carelessly confirmed the legitimacy of an Orlando Sentinel report stating that the Suns and Magic could be partners in a Duke-for-Duke swap involving Grant Hill and J.J. Redick. The deal would make sense, the source said, because "both players want out of their respective teams."

Hill, who played six mostly injury-filled seasons in Orlando before signing with the Suns in 2007, is renovating a permanent home in the Orlando area. But the 36-year-old Hill dismissed the speculation Wednesday, saying, "If I get traded, I quit." Hill is a free agent after the season.

Grant Hill for J.J. Redick? (UPDATE)

Dime brings us word of a trade rumor floated by the Orlando Sentinel: J.J. Redick from the Magic to the Suns for Grant Hill.

Brian Schmitz cites "impeccable sources" who say Hill is interested in reuniting with his former team, and that Redick wouldn't mind a fresh start in Phoenix. Schmitz is good, so this one is worth checking out. No word on whether Coach K would be thrown in on the Phoenix end in the Duke-for-Duke swap.

Trade rumors are fun, but we try to deal in reality -- trades that are beyond the point of mere inquiries and actually have a chance of happening -- here at the BergerSphere. So if this rumor rises to that level, you'll be the first to know. 

UPDATE: An update from a source familiar with both teams' situations -- a source who doesn't peddle trade rumors irresponsibly -- handicapped this one as "possible. Both want out from their respective teams."
