The Warriors acquired veteran point guard Jarrett Jack from the New Orleans Hornets as part of the trade that will send Dorell Wright to Philadelphia.
The Hornets received the draft rights to 2006 second-round pick Edin Bavcic in return. A 6-foot-11 forward, Bavcic, 28, was selected 56th overall by the Raptors and traded his rights to Philadelphia for cash the night of the ’06 draft. Bavcic, 28, played in Greece last season.
Wright, 26, joins a crowded group of wing players with starter Andre Iguodala and first-round pick Maurice Harkless already in tow for the 76ers. Wright averaged 16.4 points and 5.3 rebounds in 2010-11 but his production dipped last season (10.3/4.6).
The Sixers created cap space by using the amnesty provision to release power forward Elton Brand and the $18.2 million owed for the final year of his contract.
Jack, 28, averaged 15.6 points and 6.3 assists with New Orleans last season.
Jack was drafted by the Portland Trail Blazers in the first round in 2005, Jack played for Indiana in 2008-09, Toronto in 2009-10 and split the 2010-11 season between New Orleans and Toronto.
