CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Cavaliers have acquired center Spencer Hawes from the Philadelphia 76ers for forward Earl Clark, center Henry Sims and two second-round draft picks.
The 7-foot-1 Hawes, who is in the final year of his contract, is averaging 13 points and 8.5 rebounds, both career highs, and shoots 40 percent from 3-point range. Hawes, 25, is in his seventh NBA season.
Anderson Varejao, Cleveland’s starting center, has missed the last four games with a sore back. He also missed time earlier in the season with a knee injury and no timetable has been given for his return. Varejao played in only 81 games the last three seasons because of numerous injuries.
The Indiana Pacers traded longtime forward Danny Granger and a second-round draft pick to Philadelphia in exchange for Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen.
The injury-prone Granger had averaged 8.3 points since returning from a strained left calf in late December.
Turner led the 76ers in scoring at 17.4 points per game, while Allen was averaging 5.2 points.
The Washington Wizards have agreed in principle to acquire disgruntled point guard Andre Miller from the Denver Nuggets in a three-way trade that also involves the Philadelphia 76ers.
The Wizards would give up two seldom-used players — forward Jan Vesely and point guard Eric Maynor. Vesely goes to the Nuggets, while Maynor gets shipped to the 76ers.
Philadelphia would also get two second-round draft picks, one from the Wizards and one from the Nuggets.
The Atlanta Hawks, looking for more front-line help as they attempt to remain in the Eastern Conference playoff race, acquired 37-year-old forward Antawn Jamison from the Los Angeles Clippers.
The Clippers received the rights to shooting guard Cenk Akyol, a 2005 second-round pick now playing in Turkey.
Hawks general manager Danny Ferry was Cleveland’s GM when Jamison played for the Cavaliers in the 2009-10 season.
Ferry said he’ll talk with Jamison within the next two days to determine the forward’s interest in playing with the Hawks.
Jamison has not played in 16 of the last 17 games with the Clippers. He has appeared in only 22 games this season, averaging 11.4 minutes, 3.8 points and 2.5 rebounds.
