ORLANDO, Fla. -- The Magic have matched the Chicago Bulls' offer sheet for J.J. Redick, meaning the shooting guard will remain in Orlando for the foreseeable future.

The Bulls had given Redick, a restricted free agent, a reported three-year, $19 million offer sheet last Friday, and the Magic had seven days to match it.

Redick, selected with the 11th overall pick in the 2006 NBA Draft, had his best season in 2009-10. The Duke product averaged 9.6 points and 1.9 assists while shooting 40.5 percent from three-point range and 43.9 percent from the field overall.

The 6-foot-4, 190-pound sharpshooter averaged over 22 minutes in 82 regular season games, nearly five minutes more than his previous personal high.

"J.J. (Redick) is a valuable part of our organization, both on the court and in our community," said Magic general manager Otis Smith. "He has worked extremely hard during his four seasons with us and improved every year. We're happy that J.J. will be back to help us reach our ultimate goal."

Redick, 26, owns career averages of 7.0 points and 1.3 assists over 222 games that have all come with the Magic.
