While most of the Eastern Conference contenders opted to stand pat at the trade deadline, the Milwaukee Bucks made the boldest move by swinging a six-player deal with the Orlando Magic. The key player in the trade was shooting guard J.J. Redick, who will make his Milwaukee debut when the Bucks host the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday. Although the Bucks hold a 3 1/2-game lead over Philadelphia for the final playoff slot in the East, they have been trending in the wrong direction, having lost two straight and eight of 10 to fall below .500.Most observers figured the Hawks would make the biggest splash and deal Josh Smith, and there were reports that Milwaukee was closing in on a last-minute trade for Smith before Atlanta general manager Danny Ferry decided to keep his mercurial power forward. The Hawks did make a pair of minor moves, picking up swingman Dahntay Jones from Dallas and center Jeremy Tyler from Golden State. Jones made a cameo appearance at the end of Atlanta's 122-108 victory over Sacramento on Friday night and did not score in 2 1/2 minutes.TV: 8:30 p.m. ET, SportSouth (Atlanta), Fox Sports Wisconsin (Milwaukee), NBA TV.ABOUT THE HAWKS (30-23): Forward Al Horford is in the midst of his best offensive stretch of the season. He overcame a pair of early fouls to score 24 points and pace six players in double figures in the come-from-behind win against the Kings. Horford is averaging 24.5 points and 9.8 rebounds in his last four games and is shooting a blistering 74.6 percent during that stretch. DeShawn Stevenson, making his second straight start, also provided an unexpected offensive jolt by scoring a season-high 17 points and connecting on 5 of 6 3-point attempts.ABOUT THE BUCKS (26-27): Bucks general manager John Hammond called the move to acquire Redick a "win-now" deal. Redick, a former first-round pick of Orlando, was averaging a career-high 15.1 points while shooting 45 percent overall - also a career best. Known for his 3-point shooting, Redick said he should have no issue blending into a backcourt that features Monta Ellis and Brandon Jennings - neither of whom are shy about launching shots. "I don't need the ball in my hands a lot,'' Redick said. ''I don't need a lot of touches. That's not my game.''BUZZER BEATERS1. Smith averaged 24.3 points and 16.7 boards in three meetings with the Bucks last season and has five straight double-doubles against them.2. Redick has made 117 3-pointers this season, three more than Jennings.3. Saturday's game kicks off a six-game road trip for Atlanta.PREDICTION: Bucks 97, Hawks 94.
