SIXERS SMALL PLAYERS AT DEADLINE

(Associated Press)
True to their word, the Sixers were not big-time players Thursday at the NBA trade deadline.

The club's only activity was trading with Golden State for 6-3 guard Charles Jenkins. In turn, the Sixers sent a second-round draft pick to the Warriors.

Jenkins, who's making $762,000 this season, has an expiring contract, which probably made this move appealing. But it's not as though the Sixers have a lack of wing players. On the flip side, Golden State had to make moves in order to avoid having to pay the NBA's luxury tax.

A Hofstra product, Jenkins appeared in 47 games, averaging 1.7 points in 6.2 minutes per game for the Warriors.
