On a very lazy NBA trade deadline day where many people expected the likes of Josh Smith, Al Jefferson, or DeJuan Blair to be traded. None of those guys were except J.J. Redick who went to the Milwaukee Bucks.
The Sixers today didn’t sit on their hands either. They acquired the talents of point guard Charles Jenkins from the Golden State Warriors. In return, the Sixers will send Golden State a second round pick. But according to Sam Amick, the Warriors might not even see the pick.
Golden State made this trade so they can get under the luxury tax. For the Sixers, they added another point guard to a team that already has the likes of Jrue Holiday, Royal Ivey, and newly signed Jeremy Pargo. Jenkins is a second year player out of Hofstra. The 6-3, 215 lb. point guard has got limited playing time with the Warriors this season.
This season, Jenkins is only averaging 1.7 points, 0.6 assists, and 0.4 rebounds per game. Over his short career, Jenkins is averaging 3.9 points, 2.0 assists, and 0.9 rebounds per game. If you remember Jenkins in college he was a scoring machine at Hofstra increasing his scoring over his four year career. By time, Jenkins was a senior he was averaging 22.6 points per game.
As a Sixers fan, do not expect Jenkins to put up those kinds of numbers. Matter of fact, Jenkins will probably not get a lot of playing time as this team is loaded with point guards as I mentioned before. Jenkins will just be another body on the bench but has the potential to be an adequate player next season.
