The news of Spencer Hawes being traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers recently broke, and the fact that the Philadelphia 76ers would be receiving two second-round picks in the 2014 NBA draft was established. However, the Sixers obviously have to take money back from the Cavaliers as part of the package, and it looks like Earl Clark will be heading the other way, according to David Aldridge.

Obviously, the most attractive pieces of the deal for the 76ers are the second-round picks, which will simply give GM Sam Hinkie more ammunition in the upcoming draft. The contract of Clark is also not too bad, as it includes a team option this summer and the 76ers will most likely let him go.

Clark played himself into a decent deal with the Cavaliers after having a bit of a breakout year with the Los Angels Lakers, but he has not really performed that well in a Cleveland uniform and is mostly thrown into the deal to make the salaries match.
