Magic closing in on a deal?

The Magic have been adding players to the back court and I think it means a trade is imminent. They signed Anthony Johnson, drafted Courtney Lee and seem to be loaded at the one and two spots. I'm going to assume they are not going to resign Carlos Arroyo and Keyon Dooling, seeing as Johnson would take Arroyo's minutes and Dooling hasn't received an offer from the Magic yet.

So who's the odd man out? It has to be J.J. Redick. He didn't play much at all last season and it seems the Magic want to acquire Javaris Crittenton. I don't know how much Memphis wants for Crittenton, but Redick and possibly a sign and trade with one of their free agents might do. Redick may not be as good as Mike Miller, but he could bring some of that shooting touch back that was sent away to Minnesota.

Anthony Johnson is one the underrated point guards.I would put him as a starter before Nelson.
