76ers trade Spencer Hawes to Cavaliers
The 76ers will trade sweet shooting big man Spencer Hawes to the Cavaliers for a couple second round picks.
The Cavaliers may not officially have a general manager, but that's not stopping them from still making trades.
Hawes, who is shooting 39.9 percent from 3 as a seven-footer, will be a nice floor spacer alongside Trisan Thompson and Anderson Varejao.
The Cavs were seen to be potential sellers a couple weeks ago, but have quickly become buyers at the deadline because of an unexpected six-game winning streak that has put them back in the thick of the Eastern playoff race. At 22-32, they're just 3.5 games out of eighth.
Hawes will certainly help as he's been one of the few bright spots in Philly this season, averaging 13.0 points and 8.5 rebounds.
Hawes is on an expiring deal that pays him $6.6 million this season and by adding him, the Cavs have inched closer to breaking over the luxury tax line. But the trade also sends a bigger message: The Cavs had been said to possibly be shopping Luol Deng as well at the deadline, but with bringing in help, it seems like they just want to make a push.
