Of all the teams who are now active in trade talks, it seems the Philadelphia 76ers have been active the longest. With only weeks to go before the February 20th deadline, teams are starting to kick it into high gear, but a team who happened to already be in high gear is now powering down on some trade talks.

According to Bill Ingram from Basketball Insiders, the 76ers are starting to turn teams away who are asking about a Thaddeus Young trade.

I’ve heard that Philly is turning away from teams calling about Young.

This seems to back up recent reports that the Sixers are not looking to have a fire sale and are looking to get true value back for the players they trade. Young has been looking more and more likely to stay with the Sixers through the deadline and word that the team is turning away from teams seems to suggest trading Evan Turner is now the priority as the deadline approaches in mere weeks.
