The 76ers are in talks with the Suns regarding forward Amare Stoudemire, but general manager Ed Stefanski reportedly doesn't want the All-Star alongside Elton Brand.
Philadelphia's reported offer for the Phoenix star involves Andre Iguodala and Samuel Dalembert.
"Stefanski doesn't want Stoudemire and [Elton] Brand together," one source said.
Philadelphia hasn't been pro-active about trying to get a three-team deal going.
"A three-way would take effort on their part," one league official said, "and they haven't shown much of that yet."
