The Philadelphia 76ers traded center Spencer Hawes to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday morning in exchange for two second round draft picks, according to a tweet from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. Sam Amico of Fox Sports tweeted that the deal will also include Cleveland forward Earl Clark heading to Philadelphia.

The news comes hours before the 3 p.m. EST trade deadline on Thursday.

The 25-year-old Hawes, selected 10th overall by the Sacramento Kings in 2007, is currently averaging close to a double-double. His per game numbers have been 13 points on 45 percent shooting, 8.5 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.3 blocks in 31 minutes per game. He is due $6.5 million this year and will become a free agent in July.

The Cavs already had three second round picks in this year’s draft — one of their own, a pick from the Memphis Grizzlies and another from the Orlando Magic.
