Cleveland Cavaliers Trade A Veteran To Atlanta Hawks

The Cleveland Cavaliers trimmed their roster Saturday ahead of the upcoming National Basketball Association season, trading forward Richard Jefferson and guard Kay Felder to Atlanta while releasing center Kendrick Perkins and guard Isaac Hamilton.

The Hawks are expected to waive Jefferson and likely Felder, too.

As to where both players will land, it's hard to tell for Felder but Jefferson could retire or join a Golden State Warriors, San Antiono Spurs, OKC Thunder or Houston Rockets. The Cavaliers have also created two trade exceptions with the move.

"These situations and decisions are some of the toughest to be in and have to make", said Cavaliers general manager Koby Altman. His steady leadership, great attitude, dependability and performance helped us win an NBA Championship and we are grateful for all of his contributions on the court and within our locker room. Look for him in the G League in the immediate future.

The Hawks also get the lesser pick in the second round of the 2019 draft from either the Lakers or Minnesota, and a highly protected 2020 second rounder from Portland.

As for the Hawks, neither Jefferson nor Felder appear long for Atlanta. The Hawks will send back European draft rights as part of the deal, according to Wojnarowski.

Felder was a promising draft pick of the Cavs, taken 54th overall in the 2016 Draft. Jefferson had already announced a retirement after winning the 2016 NBA Finals, although he ultimately went back on that to play another season.

Agravanis and Gladyr are both overseas, playing for powerhouse Olympiacos of the EuroLeauge and AS Monaco Basket of the French LNB Pro A, respectively. In 262 career professional games, Gladyr averaged 9.2 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.3 assists and made 36 percent of his attempts from beyond the arc.
