The NBA trade deadline is almost here and the trades are starting to pour in as teams look to get an edge.
The second trade of the day wasn’t a big fish but involved a rising Eastern Conference team and one that could be on the slide. The Philadelphia 76ers have agreed to send Ersan Illyasova to the Atlanta Hawks in return for Tiago Splitter & a second round pick.
The deal now paves the way for more playing time for the rising Dario Saric in Philly and a second round pick that could be used in future deals today.
The Sixers are likely to be involved in another deal today involving Jahlil Okafor with current rumours having him going to either Dallas or Chicago. Stay tuned for more.
