Philadelphia 76ers have traded Spencer Hawes to the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to Yahoo Sports.
It's also been confirmed, by CBS Sports, that the 76ers will in return receive two second round picks in exchange for the 25-year-old center.
Hawes is currently on an expiring deal worth $6.6m this season - and by taking his wages on, the Cavs have moved closer to breaking over the luxury tax line.
The Seattle-born center, who is over 7ft tall, will be a big asset for the Cavaliers, who are currently in with a chance of doing something special in the Eastern playoff race after putting together a surprise six-match winning streak.
Hawes, who is averaging 13.0 points and 8.5 rebounds, is expected to help the 76ers achieve their season objectives.
The effective floor spacer is expected to link up well with Trisan Thompson and Anderson Varejao in the remaining months of the campaign.
