Default Sixers get Giricek, Jazz get Korver

76ers also got a 1st rounder too. Not a huge trade by any means, but Korver should be a nice addition in Utah.

The Philadelphia 76ers acquired disgruntled guard Gordan Giricek and a first-round pick from the Utah Jazz on Saturday in exchange for sharp-shooting guard Kyle Korver.

Giricek, a six-year veteran, was suspended for three games by the Jazz on December 20 after he engaged in a heated shouting match on the bench with Utah head coach Jerry Sloan during a game on December 19. The Croatian swingman lost his job as the backup shooting guard 13 games into the season and saw his playing time decrease.

The 30-year-old Giricek was averaging a career-low 4.3 points in 22 games for the Jazz this season.

"We are excited about acquiring a player of Gordan's ability, as well as an additional asset in the form of a first-round draft pick," said Sixers president and general manager Ed Stefanski, who made his first major deal since taking over for the fired Billy King in early December. "This move will provide us with increased salary cap flexibility this off-season and also allows us to continue our evaluation and development of the young talent we have on this team."

In 25 games this season for the Sixers, Korver has averaged 10.0 points and 2.9 rebounds. The former Creighton product is also a career 41 percent shooter from beyond the arc.

Korver >>>> Giricek & pick they traded will be somewhere between 20th & 25th place so in my book Jazz won the trade...

are you serious???
giricek has played probably 10 minutes all season long....
the guy hasnt gotten off the bench all year.
korver is a 3pt specialist who wont have to do anything else but spot up and bomb all season long.
deron williams will penetrate and kick out, or boozer will post up and pass out...
korver will be spoon-fed all season long and will just have to hit shots.
and thats his specialty.

girecek wont give the 76ers anything special.
