Turns out, the Warriors are going to make out a little bit better than expected when it comes to the Dorell Wright trade.On Tuesday, it seemed as though the Warriors were trading Wright for extra space under the luxury tax, a 4.1 million exception and a player who never figured to be on the teams roster.Instead, the Warriors will get a legitimate NBA player in the deal: Jarrett Jack.According to a league source, the Wright trade is part of a three-team deal that will land the Warriors a veteran point guard. The source said the deal is not fully completed but it's close. Jack is expected to back up Steph Curry at point guard.
The 6-3, 197-pounder has six NBA seasons under his belt. Last year with New Orleans he averaged 15.6 points and 6.3 assists in 45 games. He has also played for Portland, Indiana and Toronto.It was reported in several outlets on Tuesday that the Warriors had acquired Edin Bavcic from Philadelphia. The Sixers owned Bavcics rights from a 2006 trade with the Toronto Raptors.The Warriors did not comment on the trade, citing team policy. But Warriors officials emphasized on Tuesday that no trade could be completed until Wednesday -- the first day teams could sign free agents or consummate trades.
