The New Orleans Pelicans reportedly are trying to move sharpshooting guard J.J. Redick by the March 25th trade deadline.

However, according to BasketballNews.com’s Chris Sheridan, New Orleans intends to package Redick with another piece in any deal it makes.

“A straight up Pelicans-[New York] Knicks trade could actually be two trades, as the Knicks have $15 million in cap space and could absorb Redick’s entire $13 million expiring contract,” Sheridan wrote. “But a league source said the Pelicans are determined to package Redick with other players.”

The Pelicans are just 10-12 this season and clearly want to get a look at their younger players.

Redick is the final year of his deal, and he could be an attractive piece to a contender that needs more floor spacing on offense.

Still, the veterna guard has had a down year this season, which will likely make it harder for New Orleans to get any significant compensation in a trade.

This season, Redick is averaging 8.2 points per game while shooting just 35.3 percent from the field and 34.0 percent from 3-point range.
