Hawks to net two more draft picks in trade with Cavs

Cleveland Cavaliers sending Richard Jefferson Kay Felder to Atlanta reports say	 	 	 			Richard Jefferson Kay Felder

Dave McMenamin of ESPN said the Cavaliers will send $3 million to the Hawks as part of the deal.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are in advanced talks on a deal to send small forward Richard Jefferson, point guard Kay Felder and two future second-round picks to the Atlanta Hawks, league sources told Shams Charania of The Vertical. Felder, 22, averaged 4.0 points and 1.4 assists in his first National Basketball Association season.

It's a logical move for the Cavaliers, who needed to shed at least one guaranteed contract prior to Tuesday's season opener against the Boston Celtics.

The Hawks announced they were waiving both players.

Richard Jefferson signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers on August 5, 2015.

Canadian-born actor Anna Paquin welcomed any men who wish to show their support under the trending hash tag #WomenBoycottTwitter . McGowan said late Wednesday that Twitter had suspended her from tweeting after the social media company said she broke its rules.

USA Today's Sam Amick addd Atlanta will also acquire 2019 and 2020 second-round picks from the Cavaliers, while the Hawks will reportedly ship the draft rights to Dimitrios Agravanis and Sergii Gladyr back to Cleveland.

Both Jefferson and Felder have been mentioned as two players that the Cavs were likely to either cut or trade in order to trim down the roster.

"These situations and decisions are some of the toughest to be in and have to make", Cavs general manager Koby Altman said in a statement released by the team. He appeared in 79 games and started 13.

After the Cavaliers' preseason win over the Orlando Magic on Friday, Lue declined to comment on the trade, and Jefferson and Felder left without talking to reporters. Gladyr, who also participated in Summer League with the Hawks in 2010 and 2013, averaged 9.6 points and 2.4 rebounds in 20.5 minutes over 53 total games (nine starts) for Monaco in the French League, Basketball Champions League and Leaders Cup during the 2016-17 season.

Perkins, 32, helped Boston win the 2008 National Basketball Association crown and played in three pre-season contests for the Cavs.
