Hearing Celts, even before season-worst 7-for-32 shooting from 15+ feet in NYK loss, have ramped up their interest in Magic's J.J. Redick— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) January 25, 2013
Size obviously Celts' priority if they do deal before Feb. 21 trade deadline but word is they hope to work way into Redick mix if they can— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) January 25, 2013
J.J. Redick is currently shooting 39.8% from three-point range, a higher clip than any member of the Celtics. The closest Celtic is Paul Pierce with 36% from beyond the arch. As a team, Boston is shooting 33.4% from three which is the lowest they've been since the 2002-03 season.
CelticsLife first posted on the Celtics interest last weekend.
The move would be a bit controversial among Celtics fans, I've personally always liked Redick. The Celtics have not really had an outside shooting threat all year. Redick would be a minor move - it's not like he's an all-star - and it's arguable whether he's an upgrade over some of the role players the Celtics currently have. Still, it's hard to ignore the fact that the Celtics pieces do not fit so a switch like this might be worth a shot. Mike Saver 1/25/2013 09:27:00 AM Tweet
