The Dallas Mavericks professional basketball team remains cleaning up their own mess of blowing up their title team to make a run at Deron Williams, who is busy being overrated with the Brooklyn Beyonce's.
At the NBA's trade deadline today, the Mavericks dealt swingman Dahntay Jones to the Atlanta Hawks not for Josh Smith but for guard Anthony Morrow.
Hello, Western Conference Finals.
Morrow is 27, and in 24 games this season has averaged 5.2 points and 1.1 rebounds. The 6-foot-5 guard has played for the Golden State Warriors, New Jersey Nets and Hawks since he entered the league in 2008. Most really good players play for four teams in five seasons. He has dealt with hip and back injuries this season.
Jones was part of the trade last summer with the Indiana Pacers that also brought in guard Darren Collison. In 50 games this season, Jones has averaged 3.5 points and 1.4 rebounds.
Both players have expiring contracts.
The move does nothing. The Mavs are obviously going all in with their love-fest for Los Angeles Lakers prospective free agent, center Dwight Howard.
Not sure if D12 is going to be enticed by: "Listen, Dwight, we've got Anthony Morrow. You are all that's left."
