Veteran shooting guard J.J. Redick has been traded by the Orlando Magic to the Milwaukee Bucks, a person familiar with the deal told USA TODAY Sports.
The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the trade hasn't been made public.
Redick, center Gustavo Ayon and point guard Ish Smith go the Bucks in the deal for shooting guard Doron Lamb, point guard Beno Udrih and forward Tobias Harris, according to the person.
Surprisingly, this was the biggest of the trade deadline deals in what was a quiet season on that front. The Bucks discussed a deal for Atlanta's Josh Smith all the way up until the deadline, but ultimately decided against doing a deal for the player who was so widely expected to be traded.
In a separate deal, the Magic traded forward Josh McRoberts to the Charlotte Bobcats for forward Hakim Warrick, a person familiar with transaction told USA TODAY Sports. The person requested anonymity because the deal had not been announced. Warrick is expected to be waived.
Redick, a career 40% three-point shooting guard, is averaging a career-high 15.1 points a game. He is just below his average at 39% from threes and is averaging a career-high 4.4 assists.
His role on the team increased when Dwight Howard left for the Los Angeles Lakers. The Magic, though, have been on the skids, losing 15 of the past 16 games and are 4-26 in the past 30 games.
Redick was set to be a free agent this summer, and the Magic had no intentions of re-signing him at the price tag he was known to be looking for, which was $10 million annually on a four-year deal. Indiana and Philadelphia were also known to be involved in talks for Redick on Thursday morning.
