All the anti JJ poster in here are nothing but racist punks. If you watch the games he plays better defense than any of those clowns starting ahead of him. I guess he dosen't have enough "gangsta tattoos" like the other idiots on the team. Truth is I would not take Lee, Bogans or that other dude over Reddick. Its realy easy to spot the retards from pine hills on this board. Why don't you talk about something you know about, like car jackin or fress-stylin..
WOW...why dont you go ahead and tell us how you really feel??

I think J.J. Redick is a lot happier since he is being used properly as a shooting guard in the lineup,rather than a bench warmer for the team. They should keep feeding him the ball if J.J. is open for the shot. If Hedo leaves Orlando,the magic would be losing one of their key players who has been successful in getting this team to the playoffs.

I would trade Redick and get something for him while he is playing well. Bogans and Pietrus will be back and it is too crowded at that spot. We could use a young PG and another big man. I also wonder about including Brian Cook as he isn't playing much and has an expiring contract.

As for Hedo I want him back but if we cant resign him then we should trade him because we won't be able to get equal value in return if he does opt out and leave. We don't have enough money to go after a big name FA and we would have to get lucky with a late first round selction or a mid level deal(like we did with Hedo a few years back) in order to replace his production. Not likely. Otis Smith had better not mess this up and lose him for NOTHING or we could lose a valuable part of this team with little hope of regaining that piece.

lol wow...some people are overrating JJ Redick. He is what he is, a great great shoot, that you could argue the most of his other skills are average to below average...and his defense sucks.
He without a doubt has more value right now than either Pruit or Walker. To say he will in 2 years is another question.
Bill Walker will be a player in this league. Pruit has the talent to at least be a stay as a backup pg in this league. Reddick is more or less Eddie House.
I wouldn't do that deal either from the Celtics perspective.
