OAKLAND, Calif. — The Golden State Warriors have agreed to trade starting small forward Dorell Wright to the Philadelphia 76ers for the rights to a player currently in Europe.
The Associated Press, CSNPhilly.com and the San Jose Mercury News all reported on the deal, which the teams can't announce until the free agency moratorium ends Wednesday.
The move frees up about $4 million in salary cap space for Golden State, which drafted North Carolina small forward Harrison Barnes seventh overall two weeks ago. The Warriors now have about $8 million to spend before going into the luxury tax.
Wright averaged 16.4 points in the 2010-11 season but slipped to 10.3 points under rookie coach Mark Jackson last season.
