Monday’s Magic Word

J.J. Redick: “I’d be lying to say that I don’t want to start at some point. I’m sure every NBA player feels that way. I value my role on this team, and obviously the [Orlando] Magic value my role on this team. I take a lot of pride in contributing. We won 59 games last …

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “If I were a betting man, I’d wager that the [Orlando] Magic will match the Chicago Bulls’ offer sheet and keep shooting guard J.J. Redick. The club has until Friday to match the Chicago Bulls’ three-year, $19-million offer sheet for the restricted free agent. Things could change in the next 24 or …

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “As J.J. Redick waits to learn whether he’ll play for the Orlando Magic or the Chicago Bulls next season, he might be surprised to find out that the final determination about his future could be made in Grand Rapids, Mich. If General Manager Otis Smith decides he wants to match the Bulls’ three-year, $19 …

Tuesday’s Magic Word

George Diaz of the Orlando Sentinel: “All of these are ancillary moves in the big-picture scheme of Dwight Howard, Jameer Nelson, [Rashard] Lewis and [Vince] Carter. They are the nucleus of the Magic roster that has to wrestle with the James Gang in South Florida. You can’t rip [Otis] Smith because James bolted for Miami. Smith put together …
