According to a report from Ken Berger of CBS Sports, there's a possible deal on the table between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Orlando Magic that would send J.J. Redick to Milwaukee in return for Luc Richard Mbah a Moute and a future first-round pick. However, that deal would reportedly depend on the Bucks finding a home for Monta Ellis.
That may end up being too high a hurdle to clear in the next few days, as Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports is reporting that Milwaukee doesn't have much going on in terms of possible deals for either Ellis or Brandon Jennings.
Redick, an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season, has been in a fixture in trade rumors, since an Orlando team beginning a long rebuilding process doesn't appear to have much of a need for a role player in the prime of his career.
Milwaukee, which is currently in the No. 8 spot in the East with a 26-25 record, is a team that fits the profile of a buyer at the deadline. However, neither Redick nor Ellis could swing to the small forward position, so moving Mbah a Moute and a future first-round pick for a guy who could only play 20 minutes a night for the Bucks probably doesn't make much sense.
And while Ellis is a potent scorer, many of the problems that plagued him in Golden State have followed him to Milwaukee, so it's unclear how big the trade market for him would be.
