Atlanta's own second rounder is owed to San Antonio as a top-55 protected pick this year, dating back to the Hawks' original acquisition of Splitter.
So, in a deal where the Hawks effectively seem to have parted with a second rounder straight up for Ilyasova, how have they fared? "We are excited to welcome Ersan", said Hawks coach and president of basketball operations Mike Budenholzer.
Ilyasova has career averages of 11 points and six rebounds.

The DA's office would not confirm if charges were rejected; a spokeswoman said the office can not comment on juvenile cases. Anaheim Police Chief Raul Quezada is expected to brief the press Thursday afternoon with regard to the investigation.
With a 32-24 record, Atlanta is just half a game behind the fourth-seed Toronto Raptors, who have also made a splash in trading for Serge Ibaka. Ilyasova has provided Philadelphia with pretty consistent offensive numbers, averaging 14.3 points and 5.9 rebounds per game, but with how Dario Saric has been playing, the move makes sense.
Financially, this move doesn't damage either team, as both players are on expiring deals worth similar money. The native of Turkey also has played for Detroit, Orlando and Oklahoma City. It becomes the second time this season Ilyasova has been traded, as he was acquired by Philadelphia from the Oklahoma City Thunder on November 1. He will be a free agent at the end of the season.
Splitter is now injured, dealing with a calf injury, and he's not going to immediately be available to the 76ers.
