PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Point guard Eric Snow was traded by the 76ers to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday for guards Kevin Ollie and Kedrick Brown. This will be Ollie's third stint with Philadelphia. Snow spent 6 1/2 seasons with the 76ers, averaging 9.7 points and 6.6 assists while helping them to the 2001 Eastern Conference championship.
 

"Eric was a great captain and a great leader for us and I wish him the best of luck," 76ers president Billy King said. "This deal will give our younger players an opportunity to play. Kevin is a solid player who will give us the leadership we need in the backcourt, and Kedrick is a developing young player who will add more depth to our bench."

Philadelphia coach Jim O'Brien has said he wanted an up-tempo team. That didn't seem to fit Snow, who is a better fit in a half-court offense. O'Brien said in his system there was little need for a true point guard, suggesting Snow's time in Philadelphia could be up.

Snow agreed before last season to a four-year contract extension that runs through the 2008-09 season.

Ollie played in Philadelphia during the 1999-00 season and the 2000-01 season when the Sixers advanced to the NBA Finals.

The 6-foot-2 guard has averaged 4.4 points, 1.8 rebounds and 2.7 assists in his seven-year NBA career. With the 76ers, he averaged 2.9 points, 1.1 rebounds, and 1.8 assists in 91 games.

Ollie has played for 10 NBA teams - Chicago, Dallas, Indiana, Milwaukee, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Orlando, Sacramento and Seattle before his one-season stay with the Cavaliers.

Brown, 6-7, was a first-round pick (11th overall) by Boston in the 2001 draft and was traded to the Cavaliers in 2003. He's averaged 3.7 points and 2.5 rebounds in his career.
