The Atlanta Hawks are trading point guard Shelvin Mack to the Utah Jazz for a second-round draft pick, reports The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The move comes as part of a three-team deal that sends Hawks guard Justin Holiday and a second-round pick to the Bulls, and Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich to the Hawks.

Mack, in his fifth season out of Butler, is averaging 3.9 points and 1.6 assists per game so far this season. He was originally a second-round draft pick of the Washington Wizards in 2011.

The Jazz were reportedly on the lookout for a veteran point guard heading into the trade deadline. Utah had been linked to a trade for Ty Lawson before acquiring Mack.
