GREENBURGH, N.Y. (AP) A New York Knicks official says the team has acquired draft rights to Spanish center Guillermo Hernangomez from the Philadelphia 76ers in a trade.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity Thursday night because the trade had not been finalized by the NBA. The official says Philadelphia received two future second round picks.

Hernangomez played with the last two seasons with New York's fourth overall pick, Kristaps Porzingis, with Sevilla of the Spanish League. He averaged 10.4 points and 6.1 rebounds in 31 games last season. In 74 career games with Sevilla, Hernangomez averaged 7.5 points and 4.3 rebounds.

The official says Hernangomez will play next season in Spain.
