Ersan Ilyasova traded from 76ers to Hawks for Tiago Splitter, per report

Ilyasova has now been dealt five times in the past two seasons.

Ersan Ilyasova has been traded from the Philadelphia 76ers to the Atlanta Hawks in exchange for Tiago Splitter and a second round pick, according to The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski. The 76ers will also have swap rights for a future Hawks’ second round pick, per USA Today.

The trade is a minor one, as both players are on expiring deals. Splitter has played sparingly in a limited backup role this season, suiting up in 36 games while averaging 5.6 points and 3.3 rebounds. Ilyasova is a more impactful player, stretching the floor as a power forward and averaging 14.8 points on 44 percent shooting in 53 games in Philadelphia.

Clearly, Atlanta sees Ilyasova helping them in the playoff push for the small price of a couple second round picks. The Hawks are currently 32-24 and a half game back of the Raptors in the fourth seed.

Ilyasova has been on five teams since the summer of 2015 due to being traded so frequently.

  • He was traded by the Bucks to the Pistons in June 11, 2015
  • The Pistons dealt him to Orlando on Feb. 12, 2016
  • On June 23, 2016, Ilyasova was part of the Serge Ibaka trade, ending up in Oklahoma City
  • The Thunder sent him to Philadelphia just three games into the season on Nov. 1, 2016
  • Now Ilyasova is going from the 76ers to the Hawks

For Ilyasova’s sake, let’s hope his frantic team hopping settles down.
