Report: Warriors deal Wright to 76ers

A person familiar with the decision says 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 Golden State Warriors are getting more for Dorell Wright after all.

Two people familiar with the decision say the Warriors will send Wright to the Philadelphia 76ers in a three-team trade that will net guard Jarrett Jack from the New Orleans Hornets. The people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Wednesday because the trade is still being finalized.

The people say the Hornets will receive the 76ers' draft rights to Edin Bavcic of Bosnia and Herzegovina in a salary-slashing move.

The original proposed trade had the Warriors receiving Bavcic for Wright. Instead, the Hornets hopped in the mix to acquire Bavcic and hand the Warriors the veteran guard they've wanted this offseason.

Jack tweeted ''Well new Orleans it's been real'' and thanked fans for their support.
