Pistons balked at trading first-round pick for J.J. Redick


David Mayo of MLive:

"The Pistons had conversations with Orlando regarding J.J. Redick before Thursday’s trade deadline but the Magic were looking for a first-round pick, which ended the talks, according to a team source."

Just as the Pistons were wise to reject trading a first-round pick for J.J. Hickson, they were wise to do the same for Redick. I like Redick as a player, but if the Pistons want him, they can just sign him this summer without giving up a pick.
