PHILADELPHIA (AP) _ Forward Joe Smith, the No. 1 pick in the 1995 draft, was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers Tuesday in a four-player deal that also sent guard Jim Jackson to the Golden State Warriors.
The 76ers also got guard Brian Shaw, with forward Clarence Weatherspoon going to Golden State, which had been shopping Smith since last summer.
``We had a chance to get a guy who was the No. 1 pick in the draft,″ Sixers coach Larry Brown said. ``I don’t see any downside in this.″
Both Smith and Jackson will be free agents at the end of this season.
