Cavaliers to trade Richard Jefferson, Kay Felder to Hawks

Richard Jefferson Cavs

The Hawks own the draft rights to five players who are now in European leagues.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are in talks to send veteran forward Richard Jefferson and Kay Felder to the Atlanta Hawks, ESPN insider, Adrian Wojnarowski reports. Cleveland needed to clear two roster spots and will now save over $12 million in potential luxury-tax penalties. Wojnarowski, in a separate tweet, said the Hawks plan to waive Jefferson and Felder, who would then become free agents.

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.

Jefferson was set to make $2.5 million next season.

The Hawks, who released Felder and Jefferson to save $3.8 million in combined salary, also received second-round picks in the 2019 and 2020 NBA Draft from Cleveland. A 16-year veteran, Jefferson was the 16th overall pick of the Houston Rockets, but he was traded to the then-New Jersey Nets, where he played for seven seasons as starter.

Earlier, India started off their campaign with a 5-1 win over Japan at the Maulana Bhashani National Stadium on Wednesday. Any lapses would rue the good work done in the first two games including the confident win over Japan.

Cavs general manager Koby Altman thanked Jefferson for being a part of the 2016 championship team in a conversation Friday evening explaining the trade, according to a source.

Hawks GM Travis Schlenk is accumulating draft picks.

In 20.4 minutes per game, Jefferson averaged 5.7 points and 2.6 rebounds over 79 games and 13 starts last season.

Gladys is 6-5 and spent the past two seasons playing for the French club AS Monaco Basket. "Over his career, the 22-year-old has helped his teams capture the FIBA Intercontinental Cup (2013) and two Greek League titles (2015, 2016)". As a rookie, he played in 42 games, averaging 4.0 points and 1.4 assists while shooting 31.8 percent from three.
