Cavs make deal to clear roster spot for Chris 'Birdman' Andersen

The Cavaliers traded center Sasha Kaun to the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday, clearing a roster spot to sign Chris "Birdman" Andersen.

In return for Kaun, the 76ers sent the Cavs the rights to Chukwudiebere Maduabum.

The Cavs agreed to a deal with Andersen last week, but needed to clear a roster space before signing him for the league minimum. They sent cash to the Sixers, according to the Vertical, essentially renting their cap space.
