Yesterday we told you the Sixers continuing to stockpile swingmen like a squirrel hording nuts for the winter, agreeing to trade for Golden State’s Dorell Wright.

But that deal grew on Wednesday to include Jarrett Jack heading west, tweeted Marc Stein of ESPN.com.

In review, then: Sixers getting Dorell Wright; Warriors getting Jarrett Jack and originally GSW-bound Bosnian draftee Bavcic on way to Hornets

I like that for Golden State, Jack likely comes in as the sixth man and brings with him some scoring and energy. That is not a bad team up in the Bay Area (if everyone can stay healthy).

What does that do for the Hornets? They save $5.4 million next season. It means Greivis Vasquez could be the starting point guard. And you can bet Austin Rivers is going to get some run at the one, to see if that will work.

    Glad to see Greivis getting his opportunity to start he may not be spectacular but hes steady, consistent and has a decent turnover/assist ratio…and given his lack of speed his size adds means hes less of a liability defensively….Also guessing this means we’re serious about bringing Austin Rivers on as our PG of the future -_-….that is unless we can snag marshall in a package for gordon *crosses fingers*

    Warriors are playoff bound with this trade!

    To think just a couple of days ago he tweeted Ray Allen was a trader for leaving Boston for Miami. I wonder how he feels about being traded.
