At least for his sake its just a couple months with the bucks and he can go wherever he wants. Will miss having him in the team and in the community.

It's hard to see JJ go. One of my all time favorites.


I like to think of JJ singing this...

Excited to prove himself in the playoffs so he can increase his value and sign elsewhere maybe...

I was down on JJ for his first couple of years in Orlando. Really doubted that he could ever be more than a 9th or 10th guy in the NBA.

He proved me, and other doubters wrong, and then some. He went from a guy who was at times a liability, so a solid rotation option, to one of the best reserves/role-players in the NBA.

I will miss JJ. His attitude, commitment and loyalty were all you could ask for from a player. Hope he one day finds his way back to Orlando.

He will be missed.

Best of luck to him but hated to see him leave.....however, I'm sure he doesn't like the current status of losing every night out either
Basketball is driven by three principles:

1) Movement 2) Application of fundamentals 3) Predictability

One of my favorite NBA and college players ever.

Always love how he plays the game and what he brings. I'm so proud of the way he continued to work hard to improve after limited action early in his career. He was able to make a name for himself prove he belonged in the NBA when a lot of people doubted him even me...

I hope one day he comes back to Orlando.

Redick FTW !

Ha, you're a knob.

Sad to see him go. I won't be able to help but continue following his career, and I hope he lands himself a starting spot on a contender.

THANK YOU JJ *CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP*

my allegiance to a player usually leaves when they leave the ozone... this is the first time in the history of me liking basketball (28 yo) that my favorite player in the league does not wear a magic uniform.

Hopefully we can sign him after his next contract when we're contending for a title as a veteran SG :)

One of the hardest workers ever. He took his game from nowhere to a legit player wanted by many teams. I hope he signs with a contender in the off season. I will always root for JJ. Thanks for giving your heart and soul to the Magic.

His post game interviews were certainly my favorite out of our roster.
