In an effort to get under the luxury tax, the Golden State Warriors traded second year guard Charles Jenkins to the 76ers.
The 76ers will send a second round pick back to Golden State.
Jenkins, a 6'3" combo guard, was a 4 year player at Hofstra. He averaged 22.6 points per game on a 64% true shooting percentage his senior season.
Jenkins got fairly substantial playing time down the stretch for the Warriors last season, averaging 9.4 points and 6.3 assists in April, albeit on 9.8 shots. While Jenkins was a very good three point shooter in college who had an excellent free throw rate (0.46 free throw attempts per field goal attempt), he has yet to translate that to the NBA, shooting only 4-22 from three point range and having only a 15.2% free throw rate.

Update (Feb 22nd, 3:30 pm)
