Leading up to Thursday's NBA trade deadline, the Sixers said repeatedly that any move they made would be a minor one. That weren't kidding. The Sixers sent a second-round pick to the Golden State Warriors in exchange for backup guard Charles Jenkins on Thursday, the only move they made before the deadline. Jenkins, who is in his second year in the NBA, is averaging 1.7 points in a little over six minutes for the Warriors this season. Jenkins has not seen the playing time he did as a rookie last season, when he started 51 games and averaged close to six points. For Jenkins, the move to Philadelphia could give him a chance to build on the potential he showed as a rookie. Jenkins may very well become a nice surprise for the Sixers, but needless to say, the move will likely not get fans pumped up about the second half of the season. Rumors swirled earlier in the day on Thursday that the Sixers were in discussions with the Orlando Magic about J.J. Reddick, but indications are that nothing was ever close. Reports earlier in the week indicated that the Sixers talked to the Atlanta Hawks about Josh Smith, but again, those discussions were not believed to be serious.
