Former UK basketball player Doron Lamb has been traded to the Orlando Magic.
Lamb, a second-round pick by the Milwaukee Bucks in the 2012 NBA Draft, was sent to Orlando by the Bucks in what the Magic’s website called a “mega trade” shortly before Thursday’s 3 p.m. trade deadline.
Lamb was a member of the 2012 national title-winning UK team.
Former Duke star J.J. Redick moves to Milwaukee as part of the deal.
The Bucks also acquired Gustavo Ayon and Ish Smith in the trade, with Beno Udrih and Tobias Harris joining Lamb on the plane to Orlando.
Lamb has appeared in 23 games for the Bucks this season, averaging 3.4 points and 12.2 minutes per game.
His playing time dwindled toward the turn of the year, with his last appearance in a Bucks uniform being a three-minute cameo in Milwaukee’s 95-80 loss to Indiana on Jan. 5.
Lamb was sent to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants of the NBA Development League shortly after, appearing in two games before being recalled by Milwaukee.
After failing to appear in six games when back with the Bucks, Lamb was again assigned to Fort Wayne on Feb. 3.
