John Hollinger's Take on Redick and Korver (ESPN Insider)

Snippets of the key parts of the article: Redick signed a three-year, $20 million deal with Chicago that nearly everybody expects Orlando to match, but if not it will be a major coup for the Bulls. Chicago needs both a shooting guard and a long-range specialist, and would get both in one shot if it can land Redick. The Magic are in an interesting financial spot, however. They're undoubtedly a contender but also have spent like drunken sailors the past two years; at some point the small-market squad will have to pull back, even with the expected strong revenue from a new arena that will open this fall. Redick and Matt Barnes both are free agents and the Magic already spent $15 million on backup point guard Chris Duhon, so this may be that point. Bulls sign Kyle Korver to three-year, $15 million deal This was a nice deal for Chicago, which desperately needs shooting and nabbed the best shooter left on the market in Korver. He wasn't needed in Utah after the team drafted Gordon Hayward, but he shot 53.6 percent on 3s in 2009-10 and is a competent help defender. He's not the entire solution for Chicago's wing needs, but he's part of it, and came at very reasonable dollars in this market.
