Bobcats Promptly Trade Wright

The Golden State Warriors traded guard Jason Richardson to the Charlotte Bobcats for the rights to North Carolina forward Brandan Wright, the eighth overall pick.

Charlotte also got the rights to Alabama forward Jermareo Davidson, Golden State's choice with the 36th selection.

Richardson has spent all six of his N-B-A seasons with the Warriors. He returned slowly from knee surgery last season, averaging 16 points and six and a-half rebounds in 51 regular-season games. He averaged just over 19 points in eleven playoff games.
