OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- 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 person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because teams can't announce until the free agency moratorium ends Wednesday, said Golden State would receive a player the 76ers have playing in Europe.
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.
