Jenkins, 23, was the No. 44 overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft. The Hofstra product owns career averages of 3.9 points and two assists in 12.1 minutes. In the lockout-shortened 2011-12 season, Jenkins made 28 starts in 57 appearances overall.
The trade helps the Warriors get below the league's luxury-tax threshold. In exchange for their cooperation with Golden State, the Sixers get cheap help at point guard -- according to ShamSports, Jenkins' contract expires at season's end -- and some cash.
