According to The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Sixershave traded Jerami Grant to the Thunder.

The NBA insider wrote on Twitter that: “Thunder have been pursuing a deal for Jerami Grant for several months, and finally struck a deal for him. Teams are finishing trade call now.”

In return, the Sixers get even bigger as they add 6-foot-10Ersan Ilyasova and a conditional future pick, according to Woj’s sources. The pick, according to some other sources, is a first rounder that will be protected.

Ilyasova is a seven year NBA veteran power forward from Turkey with a 10.6 points per game average. At 29-years-old, he will add a veteran presence and perhaps some tutelage for younger foreign-born players like Dario Saric.
