SALT LAKE CITY -- The Utah Jazz acquired veteran forward Alan Henderson from Philadelphia just before the trade deadline Thursday.

The Jazz and 76ers exchanged the right to trade second-round picks in the 2007 draft. Philadelphia also included undisclosed cash considerations in the deal.

"This move gives us increased flexibility and provides us with additional options on draft day," Sixers president Billy King said.

Henderson played sparingly off the bench for the Sixers this season, averaging 3.5 points and 3.1 rebounds in 34 games. Henderson signed with Philadelphia as a free agent after spending last season with Cleveland.

The 6-foot-9, 240-pound Henderson has career averages of 7.9 points and 5.0 rebounds in 648 games over 12 seasons. He was Atlanta's first-round pick in the 1995 draft.
