The Dallas Mavericks have agreed to trade veteran forward Antoine Walker and guard Tony Delk to the Atlanta Hawks Tuesday for guard Jason Terry, forward Alan Henderson and a first-round draft pick according to the Dallas Morning News.

Walker, whom the Mavericks reportedly tried to trade for quite some time, returns to the Eastern Conference where he prospered for the first seven seasons of his career with the Boston Celtics. He later worked with Paul Pierce in Boston to form one of the NBA's most formidable scoring tandems.
Walker averaged 14 points and 8.3 rebounds in one season with the Mavericks. He reportedly had trouble fitting in to coach Don Nelson's offensive scheme, especially after Nelson asked him to play center after switching him from the point forward spot.

The trade will be approved after the NBA's league offices reopen Wednesday.

Left with a huge hole at point guard after Steve Nash signed with the Suns as a free agent, it is expected that Terry will give the Mavericks stability at point guard. He has averaged 16.2 points and 5.5 assists for his career.

As the Morning News points out, the arrival of Terry is sure to please Nelson, who has lobied for the addition of a veteran point guard so the team is not forced into throwing first-round draft pick 'into the fire' as a rookie.
