Cleveland will send two second-round picks and forward Earl Clark (per a Turner Sports report) to Philadelphia as part of the trade, which will also include at least one other player. The Cavaliers don’t have a traded player exception with which to absorb Hawes’ salary, so they will have to roughly match his incoming $6.5 million in order to make the deal legal. Clark’s $4.3 million alone isn’t quite enough to satisfy the league’s salary-matching rules, though the other players in the deal were not immediately known.
Pile up those picks for the coming draft, Hink-man! Brooklyn for the draft, anyone?
