Magic Deny Rumor

Who knows if you can believe anything any GM says (or any rumor you hear) but the Orlando Sentinel reports the following:

Magic GM Otis Smith said the reports coming out of Boston that the Celtics asked about acquiring SG J.J. Redick are not true.

"Nope," Smith said. "I haven't talked to Danny [Ainge, the Celtics' General Manager/President of Basketball Operations], so I don't know how that can be out there. I can't remember the last time I've talked to him."

Reports have said the Celtics offered the Magic F Bill Walker and G Gabe Pruitt for Redick, but that Orlando turned down the deal.

Actually the original rumor mentioned JR Giddens, not Walker, but maybe there were other variations of the same rumor floating about.
