Sixers send Green and Smith to the Hornets76ers, Eastern Conference, NBA, News, Western Conference Thursday, September 23rd, 2010
For those of you that were sick of seeing Willie Green walk out onto a basketball court for the Philadelphia 76ers, you’ll be thrilled. Green, along with Jason Smith, has been shipped to the New Orleans Hornets for 6′ 9″ Darius Songaila and 6′ 10″ Craig Brackins.
Finally, the Sixers have been able to pull even with the offseason moves of the Miami Heat.
“We made the move for these two players to add additional depth to our front court and to add out-court shooting, which was an area that we felt needed improving,” Sixers president Rod Thorn said, per Philly.com. “Songaila is a hard-working, veteran forward who will give us another option up front and Brackins is a rookie that we feel has a chance to develop into a very productive player at this level.
“On behalf of the Sixers, I want to thank Willie Green and Jason Smith for their contributions and professionalism during their time with us.”
Songaila is basically just a guy. At least Brackins is a 22-year old former first-round pick (21st overall). Then again, in the NBA, that really doesn’t mean much.
