The Cleveland Cavaliers made one last deal before the NBA trade deadline on Thursday, acquiring center Semih Erden and forward Luke Harangody from the Boston Celtics for a 2013 second-round pick.
Erden, a 6-11 center, will provide the Cavaliers some size in the middle they are desperately lacking with the injury to Anderson Varejao. In limited time, Erden is averaging 4.1 points and 2.9 rebounds per game.
Harangody is also a rookie averaging 2.3 points in 8.6 minutes per game. He was the Big East Player of the Year at Notre Dame in 2009.
