Redick will spend the offseason living in Austin, Texas while training at the University of Texas as he explores his options for the future. "I don't take anything for granted," Redick said. "If I have one option or four options this summer, I'll be excited about anything. I feel blessed that I made it through my seventh year, and I'm healthy and in one piece. I'm excited about the future. It's probably my only chance to be unrestricted during the prime of my career. It's exciting." As somebody who likes to keep a tight inner circle, Redick plans to consult with Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski, former Duke assistant and current Northwestern coach Chris Collins along with his wife and parents before he makes a decision. foxsportswisconsin.com

There was a feeling that it was only a matter of time before Redick broke out - or at least had one of his can't-miss games - but it never happened. Milwaukee lost 15 of its last 21 games, went just 12-17 after the Feb. 21 trade and was swept by the Heat in the first round of the playoffs. "I think you learn something from every situation," Redick said of his time with the Bucks. "I think it was a great, great learning experience. I'm a Christian, so my faith is a big part of my life and how I view the world and how I view things. I think that God doesn't want us to be complacent. I'm a believer in that. Often times we are placed in challenging situations or what we thought we were comfortable is now we are placed in a situation where we are playing catch up. It's all an opportunity to get better. I will reflect and learn and get better this summer." foxsportswisconsin.com

Why was the move to Milwaukee such a challenging situation for Redick? "Just being on a new team and coming to a team where guys were comfortable in their roles and now you are placed 54 games into the season," Redick said. "You have to adjust on the fly because you are comfortable doing one thing. It's a lot of adjustments. Basketball is basketball but chemistry is obviously an important part of playing." foxsportswisconsin.com

While the Milwaukee Bucks would love to keep their three free-agent guards this summer -- Brandon Jennings, Monta Ellis and J.J. Redick -- they understand they'll realistically only be able to keep two. Jennings is the most likely to stay because he's a restricted free agent, which means Milwaukee can match any offer Jennings receives on the open market. Assuming no one overpays him, he'll be a Buck. Redick will be interesting. He's seeking a sizeable increase on his $6 million salary this season, but many executives don't think he's worth more. He'd certainly be a great addition to a contender in need of shooting, but on a middling team like the Bucks, Redick has been pedestrian, averaging 12 points on 40 percent shooting, well below the 15 points on 45 percent shooting he put up in Orlando earlier this season. Some scouts and execs believe the difference is due to the fact that Orlando, with little else on its roster, ran plays for Redick, running him off screens to get him open looks. But teams with more talent and better offensive options won't do that with regularity, which will limit Redick's effectiveness. ESPN.com

If Jennings’ bravado about playing the Heat has rankled any of his teammates, they aren’t acknowledging it — at last publicly. When asked about Jennings’ prediction, Bucks center Larry Sanders smiled and said, “That’s a good goal to set.” Added veteran guard J.J. Redick: “I would assume every player should have that attitude, that you’re going to win the series. I mean you never go into a series thinking you’re going to lose the series, that your goal is to lose the series.” Racine Journal-Times

The Bucks also made a significant trade right before the NBA trade deadline that changed the make-up of the team to a certain extent. Gone were some of the younger, up-and-coming players like Tobias Harris and Doron Lamb, and coming in from Orlando was veteran sixth-man J.J. Redick, who brought NBA Finals experience to the team, as well as Gustavo Ayon and Ish Smith. “We were hoping to make the playoffs,” Hammond explained. “We thought adding a piece like J.J. Redick could help solidify that opportunity for us and he has. He’s been a great addition to our team. We’re also happy to have Gustavo and Ish Smith. It might be easy to forget about Gustavo and his abilities. We like him as a player, but it was a difficult trade to make to say the least. To move a piece like Tobias Harris and Doron Lamb; we like both those players, both good young players, but we felt at that time it was the right thing for our organization.” HoopsWorld
