DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – As the NBA trade deadline approached on Thursday afternoon, it appeared that the Dallas Mavericks would not be making a move. Then, three minutes before the time was up, Mavericks GM Donnie Nelson called owner Mark Cuban with a proposal involving Dahntay Jones in exchange for Hawks shooting guard Anthony Morrow.
“Donnie said, ‘What do you think?'” said Cuban on Friday afternoon on 105.3 The Fan. “I told Donnie, ‘I hate to lose Dahntay but we need that shooter that everybody is afraid of. Anthony Morrow is one of those guys.”
The 27-year old Morrow is also five years younger than the 32-year old Jones and brings an added offensive threat.
