J.J. Redick is currently being paid $6.75 million to finish out his current contract, but is sure to demand more in the open market this summer.  Redick is having his finest season as a pro, averaging 15.5 points per game and 4.5 assists per contest.  He’s a noted marksman from behind the arc on a reasonable contract and he’s drawing mass interest as the Feb. 21 trade deadline approaches.

But teams such as Milwaukee are hesitant to commit to dealing for Redick without assurance that he will re-sign this summer.

Does that limit his value in a trade?  Yes, probably.

But the real question is what kind of money Redick will command when his contract expires and he can test the waters.

Redick posts a Player Efficiency Rating of 16.83.  That ranks Redick seventh among NBA shooting guards, trailing only Dwyane Wade, James Harden, Kobe Bryant, Manu Ginobili, O.J. Mayo and Vince Carter.

Redick ranks higher than probable Clippers Sixth Man of the Year Jamal Crawford, Thunder 2-guard Kevin Martin and the Knicks explosive scorer J.R. Smith, yet is not in discussions for the award primarily due to the Magic’s poor record.
