    From ESPN-

    The Philadelphia 76ers have agreed to swap Samuel Dalembert to the Sacramento Kings for Andres Nocioni and Spencer Hawes, two league sources told

    The deal was agreed to on Tuesday night and the two teams have been working out details Thursday morning. Barring some last-minute hitch the trade should be completed as early as Thursday afternoon, according to the sources.

    The deal will give the Kings a player they've long coveted in Dalembert. The Kings tried to make several deals with the Sixers last year for Dalembert but couldn't make it happen.

    Sacramento has been unhappy with its rebounding and shotblocking in the post. Dalembert makes a lot of money ($12.9 million next year) but he's in the last year of his deal.

    The trade gives the Sixers a physical combo forward in Nocioni and an up-and-coming big man in Hawes.

    But the real ramifications may come during the draft. The Sixers have been deciding between Evan Turner and Derrick Favors with the No. 2 pick. While Sixers general manager Ed Stefanski is a Turner fan, new coach Doug Collins is high on Favors. With Dalembert gone and Nocioni in, it could push them in the direction of Favors.

    For the Kings, this could also change their draft equation. The team has been looking at drafting DeMarcus Cousins and Greg Monroe, both centers. With this deal, it could allow them to address another need at the three. The Kings have been high on both Al-Farouq Aminu and Gordon Hayward.

    Love the trade for the Kings. Hawes (not related :) ) was a bust and not what you would want from a center and Noc's contract isn't cap friendly. Dalembert/Thompson/Landry is now one of the better, more respectable front line rotations in the league. I still think they should draft Cousins if he is there, because Aminu has even higher bust potential.

    for Philly, what in the world does this mean? Are they going to deal Iggy as well? They seem to have a log jam at the 2-3 spots, could they really pass on Turner? Will they go for Favors or Cousins? It's shaping up to be an eventful draft day!

    What exactly is Philly doing? Dalembert is going to be an expiring contract next season and gives them solid defense down low. That team is going to give up A TON of points in 2011. Trading for Noc makes no sense because they have Iggy and Thad Young. If they draft Turner they'll have a wing log-jam(ET/Noc/Iggy/Thad), if they draft Favors, they'll have a PF log-jam(Favors/Speights/Brand), and its too high to draft Cousins. Makes you wonder if there's more dealings to be done the Sixers front.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
