The Chicago Bulls and Indiana Pacers are interested in trading for J.J. Redick, according to Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld.

Redick has increased his offensive production in each of the last five seasons and is averaging a career-high 15.3 points and 4.5 assists on 45.2 percent shooting from the field including 39.9 percent from three-point territory. Redick has recently been sidelined as he's missed the last three games due to a sore right shoulder.

Redick is currently in the final year of a contract that pays him $6 million this season. As an unrestricted free agent this summer, Redick is expected to generate significant interest around the league and any team that trades for him before the trade deadline risks losing him for nothing at the end of the season.

The Orlando Magic have lost 12 games in a row to fall to 14-36 this season which ties them with Washington for the second-worst record in the league, ahead of only the Charlotte Bobcats.
