ATLANTA (AP) - Josh Smith is staying with the Atlanta Hawks.
Smith, the Hawks' leading scorer who becomes an unrestricted free agent after the season, was not traded before Thursday's trade deadline despite talks with the Milwaukee Bucks and other teams.
The Hawks did make one move, sending guard Anthony Morrow to the Dallas Mavericks for guard-forward Dahntay Jones.
Atlanta acquired Morrow from Brooklyn in the big offseason trade that sent Joe Johnson to the Nets. Morrow, slowed by right hip and back injuries, averaged 5.2 points in only 24 games with the Hawks.
Jones, in his 10th season, has averaged 3.5 points in 50 games, including 15 starts. His contract expires at the end of the season. He averaged a career-best 10.2 points with Indiana in the 2009-10 season.
