Redick decision likely out of GM's hands

7/14/2010

If the Orlando Magic decide to match the Bulls' offer to restricted free agent J.J. Redick, it will be up to team owner Rich DeVos and president Bob Vander Weide, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

"With pretty much every decision that we've made here as it relates to this basketball team, ownership is heavily involved. I think I've said all along that if we don't have the best owners in all of pro sports, I'd be hard-pressed to find one, because they've stepped to the plate every time I've asked them to step up to the plate," Magic general manager Otis Smith said. "I'm sure this decision won't come easy, but I think they'll step up to the plate if we ask them to do it now."
