The Chicago Bulls, who signed Redick to a three-year offer sheet in the summer of 2010 that the Magic matched, are again in the running for his services. The Bulls rank near the bottom of the league in 3-pointers made, and while Redick would give them a lift in that department, he has also transformed himself into more than a one-dimensional player.
Hennigan has kept a low public profile in the weeks leading up to the deadline, his first as a general manager. Redick has let him know he is open to staying, which is an encouraging sign for Magic fans who took him to heart even when he was a seldom-used reserve early in his career.
So Tuesday night’s home game against the Charlotte Bobcats might not serve as a sendoff for Redick or Nelson after all. Nelson still has two years to go on his contract, and teams in the market for a point guard – particularly the Boston Celtics in the wake of Rajon Rondo’s season-ending knee injury – are reported to be looking elsewhere for help.
“We’re both professionals no matter what’s going on – trade deadline, no trade deadline,” Nelson said.
