Ersan Ilyasova is reportedly expected to sign with the Sixers once his buyout with the Hawks is complete according to Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports.
With a buyout expected to be complete soon, Ilyasova appears set to return to Philadelphia. He was with the Sixers last season before being traded to the Hawks at the deadline. The Sixers seemingly have a crowded frontcourt with Joel Embiid, Amri Johnson, Dario Saric, Trevor Booker and Richaun Holmes, but Ilyasova must have playing time lined up otherwise he likely wouldn’t have signed. Booker and Johnson figure to take hits at this stage but we’ll see how the rotation shakes out once he’s with the team.
