NBA Trade Rumors: Philadelphia 76ers have high asking price for Thaddeus Young

The Philadelphia 76ers are looking to be active at the NBA trade deadline this week, but it appears they are playing favorites when it comes to which trade chip they’re comfortable with giving up and the one they want to hold ransom. According to Sean Deveney from Sporting News, the 76ers are asking the highest price for Thaddeus Young when it comes to the three players they’ve been shopping at the deadline.

Most notable among them is Evan Turner, the No. 2 pick in the 2010 draft, who is slated to be a restricted free agent this summer and has been given no indication that he fits into Philly’s long-term plans.

Another free agent, center Spencer Hawes, is on the block, too, and though the Sixers are asking a higher price for forward Thaddeus Young, he, too, can be had.

This isn’t too surprising as the Sixers have started to come around the Young more and more the longer he’s been playing well. Still, all three players can be had at the deadline but if one of them is the most likely to stay, that now distinctly appears to be Young.
