The 76ers are on the verge of their second big trade in less than 24 hours.

League sources tell ESPN.com that the Sixers will send the expiring contract of Glenn "Big Dog" Robinson to the Hornets

for another inactive former All-Star – Jamal Mashburn – and Rodney Rogers.

Rogers joins Chris Webber in the Sixers' retooled frontcourt in Philadelphia.

Mashburn has missed the bulk of the past two seasons with knee troubles and is not expected to play again. As such, insurance will cover 80 percent of the money left on his contract: $10.1 million next season and the rest of this season's $9.3 million.
