The Cleveland Cavaliers have acquired center Spencer Hawes, from the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for two second round picks and F Earl Clark, Adrian Wojnarowski from Yahoo! Sport reports. The trade has yet to be confirmed by Philly.
Hawes, 25, and in the midst of a career year, will give the Wine and Gold an outside shooting threat. This season, he is averaging 13 PPG and 8.5 RPG. His contract is set to expire at the end of the season.
Clark, who was signed over the summer by ex-GM Chris Grant, was struggling this season. He had virtually fallen out of the rotation after the team acquired Luol Deng. He was averaging 5.2 PPG and 2.8 RPG. This may not be the last move made by the Wine and Gold before today’s 3:00 p.m. trade deadline.
