Ken Berger of CBSSports.com reports that the Magic have traded G J.J. Redick to the Bucks. The Bucks will send PG Beno Udrih, F Tobias Harris, and G Doron Lamb for the veteran shooter and the Bucks will receive Gustavo Ayon and PG Ish Smith as well.
The Bucks had been talks throughout the week for the guard on the expiring contract, along with talks with Atlanta for Josh Smith. Yahoo reports that a three-way deal that was being discussed between the teams fell apart and it looks like Josh Smith is staying put.
The Bucks get a good guard upgrade for a playoff run, but Redick will be behind Monta Ellis in minutes, and is an expiring contract. Without a deal for Ellis, all they've really done is turn a logjam down low into two logjams, even after sending the two guards out. But Redick is a quality player and should the Bucks not re-sign Ellis in free agency, Redick can be re-signed at a quality price.
