The pieces of the Dorell Wright trade are starting to fall into place as it is bering reported by ESPN's NBA insider Marc Stein that the New Orleans Hornets have emerged as a third party to the trade between the Golden State Warriors and Philadelphia 76ers, sending point guard Jarret Jack to Golden State as part of the trade.
Just going online: Philly trade for Dorell Wright is expanding to include Hornets, who have agreed to send Jarrett Jack to Warriors— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) July 11, 2012
Jack, a seven year veteran out of Georgia Tech University averaged 15.6 points and 6.3 assists a game for New Orleans last year, but became a bit expendable in New Orleans with the drafting of Austin Rivers. He'll join the likes of Stephen Curry and Charles Jenkins as the other point guards on the Warriors.
A team already riddled with small forwards, the Sixers gave up the NBA draft rights to 2006 second-round pick Edlin Bavcic as part of the deal to acquire another mediocre SF. Wright averaged 10.3 points and 4.6 rebounds per game last season for the Warriors in 27 minutes per contest. He is in the final year of a contract that will pay him $4.4 million, which could light a fire under him in the city of Brotherly Love.
