Orlando dealt J.J. Redick and two other players to the Bucks for a package headlined by second-year forward Tobias Harris. In another trade, Orlando sent Josh McRoberts to Charlotte for Hakim Warrick, whom the team will waive.
The Orlando Magic had a busy NBA trade deadline on Thursday, making two separate trades involving eight players.
In one deal, Orlando sent J.J. Redick, Ish Smith, and Gustavo Ayon to the Milwaukee Bucks for Tobias Harris, Doron Lamb, and Beno Udrih. In another, the Magic received Hakim Warrick and cash from the Charlotte Bobcats in exchange for Josh McRoberts. In a press release, the Magic indicated they "intend to waive Warrick."

Redick, a backup shooting guard, was Orlando's second-leading scorer in 2012-13, averaging 15.1 points per game, a career-best. He was due to become a free agent in July, and the long-term money that Orlando owes Arron Afflalo, its starting shooting guard, played a role in the decision to trade Redick.
Harris, 20, was the no. 19 overall draft choice in 2011. He averaged 15.3 points and 7.3 rebounds in his lone season at Tennessee. In his NBA career, he has averaged 4.9 points and 2.3 rebounds.
Lamb was part of Kentucky's national championship-winning squad in 2012. Milwaukee selected him with the no. 42 overall pick in the draft, and he has struggled in limited minutes at the NBA level. The Queens native shot 47.5 percent on three-pointers in college, but has connected on only 20 percent of his threes in the NBA.
