The Jazz strengthen their bench with the backup guard.

The Atlanta Hawks have traded guard Shelvin Mack to the Utah Jazz for a second-round draft pick, according to The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Mack, 22, will be joining his fifth team in Utah. Now in his fifth year in the league, the Butler grad has played 24 games this season. He's averaging 3.9 points and 1.6 assists in 7.5 minutes per game for the Hawks.

At 26-26, the Jazz are currently in the eighth spot in the West. Mack isn't going to be too big of a difference maker for them, but he'll be another line on the bench that can help if Rodney Hood is in foul trouble. He'll join a young backcourt bench with Trey Burke and Dante Exum.

It's not the splash the Hawks were expected to make at the trade deadline. The Hawks pick up a second-round draft pick, but they could be stockpiling picks to make another move before the trade deadline or during the summer. They were rumored to be involved in many more trade talks, but it was reported earlier today that they had no plans to part with veterans Jeff Teague or Al Horford.
