There weren’t many big names involved in deadline deals this season, but one of the bigger ones was J.J. Redick, who was dealt to the Milwaukee Bucks just under the Thursday deadline wire.

According to ESPN.com, the Orlando Magic sent Redick, Gustavo Ayon and Ish Smith to Milwaukee in exchange for Tobias Harris, Beno Udrih and Doron Lamb.

The acquisition of Redick is significant for the Bucks, who are currently in eighth place in the Eastern Conference and were in need of a boost on the perimeter. Redick is averaging a career-high 15.1 points per game this season and has drained 117 3-pointers, ranking him 11th in the NBA in that category.

The trade headlined a Thursday of minor deadline deals. The Hawks were reportedly looking to deal their leading scorer Josh Smith – whose contract is set to expire at the end of the season – but couldn’t find a suitable offer and decided to keep him Atlanta.  Here is a recap of the deadline trades that did take place on Thursday, courtesy of ESPN.com:
