    Magic Basketball:
    Nate Drexler: The clock is ticking on J.J. Redick

    At one point, it was pretty difficult, almost impossible, to imagine the Magic running
    out of the tunnel without Dwight Howard. Now, just months after his departure, things
    have normalized, at least in a sense, in Orlando.

    While the few veterans left on the roster continue to chip away at what was supposed
    to be an agonizing season, players like Andrew Nicholson, Nikola Vucevic, and Maurice
    Harkless have become familiar, if not by now household names.

    Maybe now, while we still have our wits in tact, we should get used to the idea that J.J.
    Redick, a man who has never in his professional career worn a jersey that didn’t say
    “Magic” on it, might not be in Orlando for much longer.

    Rumors have been reported, pundits have predicted, promulgated, and all but
    publicized the fact that J.J. Redick is probably the highest-valued trade asset on the
    Magic’s roster, and is in all likelihood squarely in the crosshairs of several contenders.

    And why wouldn’t he be? For years, Redick has been referred to as a cerebral player,
    a high IQ guy, a smart defender, and obviously a great shooter. Now he’s enhanced his
    passing game
    and shown his ability to confidently get to the paint.

    Put differently, Redick has expanded his skill-set, increased his production, and now
    you’ll need more than two hands to count the number of teams that would salivate at
    the prospect of having him come off their bench.

    Despite platooning in and out of a starter role over the years, Redick excels off the
    bench, making him an extremely flexible option for any coach who might wish to use
    him as their sixth man. Whether he’s getting hot from deep or just running his defender
    into the ground while navigating around the perimeter, the speed and diligence at which
    Redick can play can be devastating, and his ability to get into the flow of his game off
    the bench is invaluable.

    On offense, there is absolutely no question that Redick makes his team better. This
    season, when Redick is on the court, the Magic have a 104.1 Offensive Rating versus
    93.9 when he is off, per NBA.com. That Orlando is 10.2 points per 100 possessions
    better offensively with Redick on the floor should come as no surprise.

    Similarly, Redick now finds himself above the Mendoza line, so to speak, with a career
    -high 16 Player Efficiency Rating (the league average is 15), which points not only to
    his growth as a player in his seventh year, but also to the fact that where more
    responsibility is given, the more Redick will give back.

    This season, not only is Redick averaging a career high 31.1 minutes per game, but
    his usage rate is at 21.6 percent, a mark only bested by his (inflated) second season
    in the NBA where he only played eight minutes per game.

    Redick does not block shots and does not steal the ball often, so his defense isn’t going
    to show up clearly in a box score. But he grades well on Synergy, apart from defending
    spot-ups, and the eye test will show you the determination and hustle on the defensive
    end. That aspect of Redick’s game is not a secret. A graduate from Stan Van Gundy’s
    school of defense, Redick takes pride in his craft and it shows night in and night out.

    That Redick was already considered...CONTINUE READING AT MAGIC BASKETBALL

    I admit i know next to nothing about the Magic this year. I don't even know who their coach is. Anybody here has watched them? What is their style?

    They are a nice team. Able to kill you with long range shots. Nikola Vucevic is a stud. Nicholson has great potential. In general, they have a bunch of youngsters and some serviceable vets (except Hedo).

    Glen Davis will probably be back tonight. I expect us to lose this game, actually.

    I hope that they prove me wrong, though
    Tonight, all flags must burn, in place of steeples.
    Autonomy must return into the hands of the people.

    Overachieving team. Coached by Jacgue Vaughn. Played for the spurs, very young coach.

    A win here, and a Miami loss in Golden State means that we'd only be .5 games out of the top of the East.

    Lot of bad shots early in the shot clock to start in the game. Where is the passing we saw last night? And why are we still running plays for Roy?

    Need to maintain our focus. We looked like we would pull away a bit, but then lost our intensity. Need to play 48 minutes.

    Orlando is not that bad of a team, they make some trades and they can be a playoffs team, they are one of those teams that should go after Rudy Gay.

    Why would they want to take on another bad contract after Hedo's contract expires?

    I think that they are fine being in the lottery for 2 years and keep developing their youth.

    I wonder who was responsible for Green. Pritchard, Donnie, or Larry? He has to be among the worst "instant offense" type guys around. Would Washington trade us Jordan Crawford? I think I would even take Nate Robinson
