Reports: Hawks acquire Jefferson, Felder from Cavs

The Cleveland Cavaliers traded veteran forward Richard Jefferson and guard Kay Felder to the Atlanta Hawks on Friday to get down to the maximum 15-player roster limit, according to multiple reports. 

Cleveland also gave up second-round picks in 2019 and 2020 and cash in the deal and received the draft rights to Greece's Dimitrios Agravanis (59th overall selection in 2015) and the Ukraine's Sergii Gladyr (49th pick in 2009). 

The Hawks reportedly will waive both Jefferson and Felder. 

The 37-year-old Jefferson averaged 5.7 points and 2.6 rebounds in 79 games last season. 

Felder, who was a rookie, averaged 4.0 and 1.4 assists in 42 games in 2016-17.
