DALLAS - The Dallas Mavericks have tried to bolster their perimeter shooting in a deadline deal of guards with limited roles this season.
Dallas traded Dahntay Jones to Atlanta for Anthony Morrow on Thursday, giving up a solid defender in hopes that Morrow can be a 3-point threat alongside O.J. Mayo and Vince Carter.
Morrow has averaged 5.2 points in just 24 games while battling right hip and back injuries. The fifth-year player was acquired by the Hawks when they sent Joe Johnson to Brooklyn. Morrow has played just two of the past 25 games.
Morrow shot better than 45 percent his first two seasons, both with Golden State. He averaged a career-high 13.2 points per game two seasons ago with the Nets.
