Sixers reportedly land Wright in deal with Warriors

The Philadelphia 76ers reportedly added another small forward to the mix on Tuesday, trading for Golden State's Dorell Wright.

Philly.com cited a league source in declaring the Wright acquisition in exchange for an undisclosed draft pick.

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.

This was a cap-clearing move for Golden State, which will shed $4 million in salary cap space and still has to sign its first-round draft pick Harrison Barnes.
