UPDATE: Watkins middle name is 'Finesse'!!!!

According to our good pal, Tom Moore, the Philadelphia 76ers have officially announced the trade for Dorell Wright, via press release. However; there's another player coming back to Philadelphia.

I've honestly never heard of Darryl Watkins, but apparently Mike does, and according to him, he sucks. I got really excited at first, because I thought the Sixers were trading for Darryl Dawkins somehow. Then, I thought maybe they were doing a cross-sport trade for Danny Watkins. Then, I thought it could've been a typo for Brian Dawkins.

Come to find out that the Sixers are getting some guy named Darryl Watkins. He's 27 years old and weighed in at 241 pounds at the pre-draft combine ... like eight years ago (2007). He's played in 14 NBA games, in which he has more fouls and turnovers (37) than points (35).

Yay?
