Philadelphia 76ers Acquire Dorell Wright From Warriors

by July 10, 2012

The Golden State Warriors have agreed to trade Dorell Wright to the Philadelphia 76ers for a future draft pick. has the details: “Trading Wright, the starting small forward the last two seasons, frees up $4 million off the Warriors’ salary cap. They now have about $8 million of space before going over the luxury tax. That will help Golden State address other needs, such as front line help, a backup point guard and a veteran scorer off the bench. Golden State had been shut out of the free agency period thus far, largely because of limited salary cap space. But this trade allows for the Warriors to use their mid-level exception and bi-annual exceptions, or take on some $8 million of salary in a trade.”
