Instead of acquiring Josh Smith from the Hawks, as was widely rumored that they would, the Bucks swung a deal to bring in J.J. Redick from the Magic
On a trade deadline day which did not hold many surprises and/or major deals, one involving the Magic and Bucks probably held the most intrigue.
In a six-player deal, Orlando traded their fan-favorite shooting guard in Redick, whose contract expires after this season, by shipping him up north to Milwaukee along with Gustavo Ayon and Ish Smith in exchange for former first-rounder Tobias Harris, Doron Lamb and Beno Udrih.
Milwaukee was one of the NBA teams most linked to all kinds of trade rumors in recent days and weeks, with the player most often popping up in regards to them being Josh Smith of the Hawks, who Atlanta reportedly wanted to desperately trade by the deadline but could not get anything done after not receiving sufficient enough offers from other teams.
With most people thinking that the Bucks would sw...

The reality is still setting in that J.J. Redick is no longer a member of the Orlando Magic.
He was with the team in Dallas yesterday and returned home after the announcement of the deal before heading off to Milwaukee this morning. It was an emotional day for both Magic fans and for Redick.

Redick from the Orlando Magic for Doron Lamb, Tobias Harris and Beno Udoh, according to Y! Sports Adrian Wojnarowski.

Although the Hawks listened to deals up until the final seconds, including a 3-way trade with Orlando and Milwaukee, they ultimately decided to keep free-agent-to-be Josh Smith at the deadline. Smith will remain with the Hawks for the remainder of the season until he becomes a free agent in July. Talking with the media after practice Thursday, Smith said if he was to enter free...
Josh Smith has been a facet of trade rumors very reminiscent to the one that were shouldered by Dwight Howard just a year ago. It has been a bumpy ride this year for Smith. However, despite the many rumors that stated that Smith would stay in Atlanta, the Hawks have opted to keep Smith. There are many possible reason why this may be. For one, Smith is sitting on an expiring contract...
With the NBA trading deadline just hours away (Thursday, 3 p.m. ET), several prevailing questions remain. Here are five:

The Hawks appeared to get the closest to an agreement on a trade with the Bucks on Josh Smith.
Josh Smith remains in Atlanta. That's not good news for the Hawks.
With the deadline in its final hour, the Bucks continue to discuss a trade for Josh Smith with the Hawks.
Today is the day that maybe everything in fantasy basketball changes. Maybe not! No, no, definitely stuff will change! My Magic 8 Ball sees Josh Smith on the Smoove. Get out the pun police again! My Magic 8 Ball thinks J.J. Redick is turning in his Mickey Mouse ears possibly for some Cheese Head thingy or whatever it is they wear up in Wisconsin. Perhaps Monta Ellis heads down to...

The Atlanta Hawks have six weeks of four-game slates starting Monday. Josh Smith, Jeff Teague, Al Horford and Kyle Korver are must-own players in this stretch (and J-Smoove's fantasy owners should be happy that he wasn't traded). Devin Harris is definitely worth a look, especially after Saturday night's line (39 minutes, 21 points, four 3-pointers, four assists, a steal...
