The Golden State Warriors made two minor moves at the NBA trade deadline Thursday, allowing them to stay under the luxury-tax threshold.
Guard Charles Jenkins and cash went to the Philadelphia 76ers, and forward/center Jeremy Tyler and cash were dealt to the Atlanta Hawks. In both deals, the Warriors received future draft considerations.
Jenkins, 23, was lightly used off the Warriors' bench this season. He averaged 1.7 points and 0.6 assists in just 6.2 minutes per game, and he never saw the court seven times in Golden State's 54 outings.
During his rookie season in 2011-12, Jenkins averaged 5.8 points and 3.3 assists in 17.5 minutes.
He was a second-round draft pick in 2011 out of Hofstra, where he was twice the Colonial Athletic Association player of the year.
Tyler, 21, averaged 1.1 points and 0.9 rebounds in 3.2 minutes in 20 games this season. He also played with Golden State's Development League affiliate, the Santa Cruz Warriors.
Another second-year player, Tyler was a second-round pick in 2011 after playing professionally in Israel and Japan.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the Warriors are one of seven NBA teams that has never paid luxury tax.
