The Philadelphia 76ers are reportedly finalizing a trade that will send power forward Ersan Ilyasova to the Atlanta Hawks in exchange for center Tiago Splitter and a couple of second-round picks, per Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical. The 76ers have the right to swap another second-round pick.

The Hawks are sending the second-round selection they acquired from the Miami Heat acquired in the James Ennis trade during the 2013 NBA Draft while essentially swapping their own 2017 second-round pick for Golden State's 2017 second-round pick, a pick owned by the Sixers. "We are excited to welcome Ersan", said Hawks coach and president of basketball operations Mike Budenholzer. They will return from the All-Star break in fifth place in the Eastern Conference, a half-game behind Toronto.

"Splitter, a 32-year-old Brazilian big man, spent his first five seasons with the San Antonio Spurs before being traded to the Hawks and re-signing with the team". Splitter is playing just 16 minutes per game, scoring six points and pulling down three rebounds.

The figure is calculated by measuring extra travel time during peak hours against situations in which there is no congestion. Average speeds drop to 4mph in the city centre at peak times, according to the report by traffic data specialists INRIX.

Bogdanovic is one of two players the Nets are believed to be moving, the other of which is Brook Lopez.

Ilyasova will be an unrestricted free agent after 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. He has yet to play this season because of a hamstring injury.
