Traded The Orlando Magic traded veteran shooting guard J.J. Redick, center Gustavo Ayon and reserve point guard Ish Smith to the Milwaukee Bucks in exchange for guards Doron Lamb and Beno Udrih, as well as forward Tobias Harris. In a separate trade, Orlando acquired forward Hakim Warrick and cash considerations from the Charlotte Bobcats in exchange for forward Josh McRoberts. The team said it intends to waive Warrick. Redick, a former first-round pick in his seventh season, was a coveted name on the trade market. A 2006 Orlando draft selection, he is averaging career highs in points (15.1) and field-goal percentage (45.0).

• The Washington Wizards have sent disgruntled guard Jordan Crawford to the Boston Celtics for center Jason Collins and injured guard Leandro Barbosa. Crawford carried much of the scoring load early this season but had been unhappy with his role since the return of John Wall from injury.

• The Portland Trail Blazers acquired reserve point guard Eric Maynor from the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for the draft rights to Georgios Printezis. Maynor is making $2.3 million this season and becomes a restricted free agent this summer.

Injured Flyers center Matt Read will miss six weeks because of torn rib cage muscles. Read was injured on a hit by Chris Kunitz in the first period of Philadelphia’s 6-5 NHL win at Pittsburgh on Wednesday night. Read leads the Flyers with seven goals, and his 13 points are third behind captain Claude Giroux and Brayden Schenn.

Apologized Former North Carolina State men’s basketball coach Sidney Lowe has apologized to family and friends after being arrested on tax charges and says he’s working to resolve the issue. The state Department of Revenue says Lowe didn’t file returns in 2009, 2010 and 2011. Those were the last three years he coached the Wolfpack. He was arrested Monday and released on a $10,000 unsecured bond on the misdemeanor charges. Lowe is now an assistant with the NBA’s Utah Jazz.
