Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

The Philadelphia 76ers made a small trade at Thursday's NBA trade deadline, which passed at 3 p.m., acquiring point guard Charles Jenkins and cash considerations from the Golden State Warriors in exchange for a future second-round draft pick.

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.
