A flurry of trades came in as the clock winded down on Thursday's 3 p.m. NBA trade deadline, including the Sixers' swap of a second-round pick for Warriors guard Charles Jenkins (see story).

The biggest deadline deal saw J.J. Redick dealt to the Milwaukee Bucks in a six-player trade.

Orlando traded Redick, Ish Smith and Gustavo Ayon to the Bucks for Beno Udrih, Doron Lamb and Tobias Harris, according to the Associated Press.

Redick is averaging 15.1 points on 45 percent shooting this season. He's shot 39 percent from three this year and 40 percent for his career. Redick has turned himself into a more complete player this season, dishing out 4.4 assists per game after previously topping 2.0 per game just once since coming out of Duke in 2006.

The Sixers were rumored to be in on Redick but ultimately missed out, as did the Hawks on trading Josh Smith. Smith will stay put in Atlanta after the Hawks spent most of the day Thursday trying to involve themselves in a deal with Milwaukee.

Celtics acquire Crawford
The Celtics on Thursday acquired shoot-first guard Jordan Crawford from the Washington Wizards for center Jason Collins (see story from CSNNE) and the expiring contract of Leandro Barbosa. Barbosa is out for the season with a torn ACL and Jason Collins is Jason Collins, making it a pure salary dump for the Wizards.

Crawford, 24, gives Boston much-needed backcourt depth. He’s averaged 13.2 points on 42 percent shooting this season, with 3.1 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game. This is his fourth NBA season out of Xavier.

Crawford is a volume shooter whose shot 40 percent from the field in his career and 29.9 percent from three.

Minor deals
• The Suns traded Sebastian Telfair to Toronto for Hamed Haddadi and a second-round pick.

• The Knicks dealt Ronnie Brewer to the Thunder for a second-rounder.

• The Thunder, sent Eric Maynor to Portland for the Blazers' trade exception, giving the talented point guard a chance for playing time. Maynor was blocked in Oklahoma City by PGs Russell Westbrook and Reggie Jackson.

• The Mavericks traded Dahntay Jones to the Hawks for Anthony Morrow, and the Bobcats dealt Hakim Warrick to the Magic for Josh McRoberts.

For all of Morrow's supposed potential, he will now head to his fourth team in his five-year career. Warrick, a Philly native, is headed to his seventh team in the last five years.
