MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Bucks feel like they have made a deal that will help lock down a playoff spot and move them up the Eastern Conference ladder.
Milwaukee acquired shooting guard J.J. Redick from the Orlando Magic along with point guard Ishmael Smith and center Gustavo Ayon in exchange for backup point guard Beno Udrih and youngsters Tobias Harris and Doron Lamb.
General manager John Hammond said Friday the moves were a "win-now" proposition.
Milwaukee has gone 10-11 under Jim Boylan since Scott Skiles left. The Bucks take a 26-27 record into their game Saturday night against Atlanta, good enough for eighth in the conference.
