Knicks trade rumors: Iman Shumpert for Orlando Magic guard J.J. Redick discussed

Elsa

If the Knicks want to land J.J. Redick, they might have to up their offer to Orlando.

The New York Knicks and Orlando Magic have discussed trading guards Iman Shumpert and J.J. Redick, per Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld. The Knicks might have to sweeten the pot if they want to get Redick as the Magic are still looking for a first-round pick, too, per Marc Stein of ESPN. A bidding war might break out for Redick as the Milwaukee Bucks are interested and have offered Luc Mbah a Moute and a first-round pick, per Ken Berger of CBS Sports.com.

From Kennedy:

The interest in Redick swells as he is having a career NBA season. Redick is averaging career highs in points with 15.3, in minutes played with 31.6 and he is shooting over 40 percent from three-point land -- where he takes six attempts per game. The Magic are in prime position to get teams into bidding wars over Redick's services, but it's still not clear if they will move the shooting guard.

Through 13 games with the Knicks, Shumpert is averaging 5.3 points per game in just over 19 minutes per contest. While he is not giving the Knicks a lot of scoring pop, his defensive role with the team could be invaluable. Battling back from an ACL injury, Shumpert has looked impressive thus far.
