Forward Ersan Ilyasova completed his buyout with the Atlanta Hawks on Monday, clearing the way for him to join the Philadelphia 76ers as a free agent, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Ilyasova and the Hawks had been discussing a buyout over the past several days, and Atlanta was eager to allow Ilyasova to join a playoff team and contend down the stretch of the season. Ilyasova considered several opportunities with playoff teams, including Philadelphia, Golden State, Cleveland, Milwaukee and Toronto.

Ilyasova is slated to clear waivers on Wednesday and is expected to reunite with the 76ers, with whom he played 53 games during the 2016-17 season. He is expected to sign a veteran’s minimum deal for the remainder of the season.

Ilyasova, a 6-foot-10 floor-spacer, has averaged 10.9 points and 5.5 rebounds while shooting 35.9 percent from 3-point range in 46 games this season for the Hawks. He’s in his 10th NBA season.
