The Cleveland Cavaliers announced Friday that they have traded seldom-used big man Sasha Kaun to the Philadelphia 76ers. The move created room on the roster for Cleveland to sign center Chris Andersen in a separate deal, sources told ESPN.
Friday’s trade sends Kaun and his $1.3 million guaranteed salary for 2016-17 to Philadelphia along with cash considerations, with the Cavs receiving the draft rights to Chukwudiebere Maduabum in return.
The Sixers intend to waive Kaun once the trade is completed, league sources told ESPN.
