Report: Warriors acquire Hornets’ Jarret Jack as part of Dorell Wright trade to Sixers
The Golden State Warriors will receive New Orleans Hornets point guard Jarret Jack as part of the trade that sent the Warriors’ Dorell Wright to the Philadelphia 76ers, according to a tweet Wednesday afternoon from Marc Stein of ESPN.com.
The Sixers’ trade for Wright was reported on July 10, with the Warriors receiving Edin Bavcic of Bosnia and Herzegovina in return. Now, according to Stein, Bavcic is headed to New Orleans.
Jack made $5 million with the Hornets last year in what was considered to be the best season of his career, averaging 15.6 points and 6.3 assists in 34 minutes per game.
Wright made $3.8 million with the Warriors last season. His trade was initially seen as a way for the Warriors to clear up cap space, but it’s not clear whether that is the case anymore if the Warriors keep Jack for next season.
Warriors to get Jarrett Jack & Hornets only have to take back draft rights to Edin Bavcic (originally Philly-bound) to complete the trade—
