WASHINGTON — A person familiar with the situation said the Washington Wizards traded 54th pick Arsalan Kazemi to the Philadelphia 76ers.

The person said the Wizards traded the 38th and 54th picks to Philadelphia for former Walton High School star Glen Rice Jr., who was taken 35th overall by the 76ers on Thursday night. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the trade had not been announced.

Kazemi averaged 10 rebounds per game for Oregon this season. He is a 6-foot-8 power forward.

Rice is the son for former NBA All-Star Glen Rice.

After being dismissed from Georgia Tech in his junior year, Rice played with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers in the D-League. He averaged 25 points per game in the playoffs.
