The 76ers are sending Ersan Ilyasova to the Hawks for Tiago Splitter and two second-round picks, per the Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski. While reports have yet to indicate what second rounders are to be included, Atlanta now owns the Brooklyn Nets' and the Miami Heat's second rounders for this year and the Washington Wizards' second-round selection in 2019.
The Hawks and 76ers will also swap second round picks as part of the deal, according to Wojnarowski. They will return from the All-Star break in fifth place in the Eastern Conference, a half-game behind Toronto. "We are excited to welcome Ersan", said Hawks coach and president of basketball operations Mike Budenholzer. The former Spurs center averaged 5.6 points and 3.3 rebounds per game in a Hawks uniform.
The 76ers are 13th in the East, ahead of only Orlando and Brooklyn. The 29-year-old is averaging 14.3 points per game and 5.9 rebounds per game.
James O'Connor and Ali Williams held on Paris cocaine charge
Ali Williams has spent the night in a police cell after being arrested on suspicion of attempting to buy cocaine. The arrests occurred a little after 3am local time outside of a nightclub near the Champs-Elysees.
Financially, this move doesn't damage either team, as both players are on expiring deals worth similar money. He will be a free agent at the end of the season.
Ilyasova, who can become a free agent after the season, was traded with a 2020 first-round pick by Oklahoma City to the 76ers for Jerami Grant on November 1, 2016.
Splitter was a useful piece early last season for the Hawks, but multiple injuries relegated him to Atlanta's inactive list for most of the past two seasons.
