Veteran forward Ersan Ilyasova plans on signing with the Philadelphia 76ers once the Atlanta Hawks finalize a contract buyout, The Vertical's Shams Charania reported Sunday. Ilyasova appeared in 53 games for the Sixers a year ago and averaged 14.8 points and shot 35.9 percent from beyond the arc. Through 46 games with the Hawks this season, the 30-year-old is posting 10.9 points and 5.5 rebounds per game. Even in what's likely to be a limited role, Ilyasova should be a solid addition for Philadelphia through his three-point shooting. The Sixers are tied for 16th in made three-pointers (10.4 per game) and 15th in three-point percentage (36.2). It's clearly an area where the team could improve ahead of the final few months of the regular season.
