Hawks send Tiago Splitter to 76ers for Ersan Ilyasova

CHICAGO IL- JANUARY 29 Ersan Ilyasova #7 of the Philadelphia 76ers moves against Doug Mc Dermott #11 of the Chicago Bulls at the United Center

The 76ers are sending Ersan Ilyasova to the Hawks for Tiago Splitter and two second-round picks, per the Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski.

In the late Wednesday night deal, the 76ers also landed a second-round NBA Draft pick and the right to swap second-round picks with the Hawks in June's NBA Draft.

It's definitely a weird trade but if the Sixers aren't planning to re-sign Ilyasova, it makes sense to ship him off for something rather than let him walk for nothing when the season ends. He started the year with the Oklahoma City Thunder before getting traded to the 76ers.

Sources told ESPN's Brian Windhorst about the trade that addressed the Hawks need for frontcourt help in Ilyasova, who has been playing well for the Sixers this season with averages of 14.8 points and 5.9 rebounds.

Residents evacuate after levee breach in California
In the San Joaquin Valley, residents were patrolling levees for signs of danger, reviewing evacuation plans and filling sandbags. After the flash flood warnings were issued, evacuation process also picked up pace on Monday.

Tiago Splitter will likely never actually don a Sixers uniform. At 32-24, the Hawks rank fifth in the Eastern Conference while the 76ers, 21-35, have the third-worst record in the East, 5 1/2 games behind Detroit for the last playoff berth. His contract is up after the season and is owed just about the same amount of money as Ilyasova.

All in all, this looks like a pretty solid trade.

Hours after general manager Wes Wilcox announced the Hawks expected to be buyers at Thursday's deadline, the franchise flipped an inactive piece for a 29-year-old shooting 36.7 percent from the outside over 583 career games.
