The NBA trade deadline is approaching fast which means that teams around the league are starting to make calls about players reportedly on the move. One of those teams getting calls about players are the Philadelphia 76ers, and two of the players being discussed as trade chips are Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes.

While Turner is being shopped more heavily and drawing much more attention, Eddie Sefko from the Dallas Morning News believes that Spencer Hawes is likely to be traded as well before the deadline comes and goes.

Per Sefko:

I’d keep an eye on those Philly players (Turner and Hawes). Sounds like they are on wheels.

This isn’t too terribly surprising as the 76ers have been tossing out Hawes, Turner and even Thaddeus Young in trade talks as far back as the end of December. So far nothing has come from the trades but it’s sounding like Turner an Hawes are going to be on the move.

Charlotte apparently has an offer on the table for Turner, but Hawes may draw more and more attention as the deadline nears.
