Magic To Exercise Team Option On J.J. Redick, According To Report

The Orlando Magic plan to pick up the team option on the contract of sharpshooter J.J. Redick, according to Adrian Wojnarowksi of Yahoo! Sports. Redick signed a three-year, $19 million deal during the summer of 2010, when he also received an offer from the Chicago Bulls. He will be owed $6 million during his option year. New General Manager Rob Hennigan has his hands full in his first offseason with the club but, according to Wojnarwoski, he's likely to retain Redick by the end of the week:

Redick averaged career-highs in almost every category last season, scoring 11.6 points per game in 27.2 minutes per game. Next season will be the Duke product's seventh year in the league and he recently stated that he's happy in Orlando and wouldn't mind spending the rest of his career with the Magic.
