On Thursday morning, the Cleveland Cavaliers completed a deal with the Philadelphia 76ers to acquire center Spencer Hawes.
Initially, it was reported the 76ers would be getting back a couple of second round picks and one or two expiring contracts to make the deal work and help the 76ers clear cap room.
There are, in fact, two expiring contracts going from Cleveland to Philadelphia and David Aldridge of NBA.com and TNT and Mary Schmitt Boyer of the Cleveland Plain Dealer have reported who those two players are.
Per source, CLE will also send forward Earl Clark to Philly along w/ 2 seconds for Hawes. Yahoo! reported Hawes would be going to Cleveland.
