With the February trade deadline drawing closer, the NBA rumor mill has shifted into high gear, as countless players get put on the block.

For the Pelicans, veteran sharpshooter JJ Redick could be the next one to get moved.

According to a new report by The Athletic's Shams Charania, four teams are in contention to land the 36-year-old guard.

As Feb. 2 looms as the NBA’s deadline for teams to aggregate acquired players in a trade later, the New Orleans Pelicans have focused on the Philadelphia 76ers, Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics as potential trade destinations for JJ Redick, sources tell The Athletic's Shams Charania.

By trading for him, the Celtics, Sixers, and Nets can get even closer to meeting their goals in the Eastern Conference. But we'll see which one of them wants him the most...
