As part of Thursday's Carmelo Anthony trade, the Hawks will send Mike Muscala to the Sixers and receive Justin Anderson from the Thunder while Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot will head to OKC.
Shams wanted to get in on the action after Woj had the initial report of the trade. Muscala was added in the trade to make salaries work and the Sixers ended up picking up the big man in exchange for TLC and Anderson. They have both struggled to find consistent rotation minutes, but both are still young and have potential to be switchable, modern role players. Muscala will fill the role left by Ersan Ilyasova and the one that Nemanja Bjelica was supposed to play. He should find decent minutes off the bench as a floor spacer.
