Sixers Deal Ersan Ilyasova To Hawks; Wiz Acquire Bogdanovic

With the NBA trade deadline fast approaching, teams have not stopped wheeling and dealing.

At least two more trades have reportedly pushed through, with the Philadelphia 76ers dealing Ersan Ilyasova to the Atlanta Hawks for two second-round picks and Tiago Splitter and the Washington Wizards acquiring more help in the person of Bojan Bogdanovic in a trade with the Brooklyn Nets.

The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski first reported the news.

Ilyasova was acquired along with a conditional first-round pick from Oklahoma City on Nov. 1 for Jerami Grant. The 29-year-old, who is a free agent at the end of the season, has averaged 14.3 points and 5.9 rebounds this season.

Washington also got forward Chris McCullough in the deal and sent a lottery-protected 2017 first-round pick, Marcus Thornton and Andrew Nicholson to Brooklyn. The Wizards announced the trade Wednesday night.

Bogdanovic, 27, averaged a career-high 14.2 points a game as a starter for the struggling Nets. He will add depth to the Wizards, who are in third place in the Eastern Conference.
