NBA Rumors: Philadelphia Sixers don’t feel they have to make a trade


The amount of players available on the Philadelphia 76ers is almost endless. From Evan Turner to Spencer Hawes to Thaddeus Young, a large portion of their team is available come the NBA’s trade deadline.

That said – the Sixers don’t feel they have to make a trade, this according to Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders who reports Philadelphia isn’t in pressing need of making a deal.

Like most teams (Philadelphia 76ers), they are out there, but they do not feel like they have to make a mid-season trade. Its about what will they get back and we’re not to the point where teams are offering anything yet.

Of course, that could change as the mid-February deadline approaches but Kyler does seem to have a point.

Hawes, the least likely of the three to be traded, is an expiring contract and won’t bring much in return value. Turner is a restricted free agent and like Hawes, won’t bring a ton of value. Young, the most talented of the three would likely bring the most value, though he could essentially be moved at any point given his ability.

It would be a little shocking not to see a move given Philadelphia’s current situation, but it doesn’t appear they have a pressing need to make a move right now.
