Oakland, CA (Sports Network) - The Philadelphia 76ers added another small
forward to the mix, trading for Golden State's Dorell Wright in a three-team
In exchange for dealing Wright, the Warriors acquired veteran guard Jarrett
Jack from the New Orleans Hornets, who received the draft rights to forward
Edin Bavcic from Philadelphia. Center Darryl Watkins also went to Philadelphia
in the deal.
The 6-foot-7 Wright is in the final year of his contract that will pay him
$4.4 million this season, and he is coming off a solid campaign that saw him
average 10.3 points and 4.6 rebounds per contest. He posted 16.4 points per
game during the 2010-2011 season.
Jack has bounced around with four teams during his seven-year career and is
coming off a career-high season in which he averaged 15.6 points and 6.3
assists in 45 games for the Hornets.
"Jarrett recently completed his most productive season in the NBA and, in
addition to providing us with additional veteran leadership, his ability to
run an offense, score and a variety of other things will be a tremendous
asset," said Warriors general manager Bob Myers.
Bavcic, of Bosnia, is a 2006 second round draft pick of the Raptors and has
yet to play in the NBA.
Watkins, a 6-foot-11 center from Syracuse, has played in just 14 games in his
NBA career. The 27-year-old averaged 4.6 points and 5.4 rebounds in five games
with the Hornets last season.
