"ORLANDO - Apparently J.J. Redick's feelings for the Orlando Magic have cooled.
Just two days after proclaiming the shooting guard-thin Magic were a good fit for him, Redick canceled a private workout with Orlando that was scheduled for Wednesday."
Redick canceled his Wednesday workout with Orlando!? This coming on the heels of an ESPN rumor the C's were 'strongly' considering taking him at 7! Now, it surely seems that Redick is a lock in the top ten, right? Why would he cancel Orlando unless someone has given him a guarentee!?
"ESPN.com reported last week that the Boston Celtics were strongly considering picking the 6-foot-4, 190-pound Redick with the seventh pick. Minnesota (No. 6) and Houston (No. 8) are also in the market for a shooting guard. Redick has already worked out for Golden State (No. 9), Seattle (No. 10), Utah (No. 14) and Houston. Also, Magic general manager Otis Smith met with the star guard and watched him work out in Los Angeles earlier this month."
Obviously, all this is just rumor. We are bloated at the SG position and there is no way (no disrespect to Redick) that we pick JJ. However, Orlando is concerned Redick's canceling means he's secure a top ten team! Which opens the door for some substance to the ESPN rumor.
I still don't think it possible. The best news in all this is that McHale and the T-Wolves are looking for a guard. I sure hope, for our sake, that happens. I am not a big Redick fan.
"Sam Smith's top 5 Bulls' draft scenarios - #3. Paul Pierce and No. 7 for Luol Deng and Nos. 2 and 16. Boston says there's no way it is trading Pierce, though rumors have circulated again. I believe the Celtics this time. But Boston's vision has been a young, athletic team and with Deng and No. 2 with the youngsters they have they could be interesting. With No. 7, the Bulls could get a solid big man like Williams, Hilton Armstrong or even Bargnani."
