Trade Updates On Thaddeus Young, Evan Turner

Jim O'Connor-USA TODAY Sports

Sources have informed Liberty Ballers of the latest news on two of the Sixers biggest trade assets.

There are just nine days until the NBA trade deadline, and it is clear Sixers fans are becoming antsy as to whether or not GM Sam Hinkie will pull the trigger on a trade. While trade talks grew warm during the Omer Asik sweepstakes in December, and have cooled off during the past month or so.

But with the February 20th cutoff point in sight, a source close to the Sixers has provided Liberty Ballers updates on two of Philadelphia's trade chips: Thaddeus Young and Evan Turner.

While Evan Turner has been linked to a handful of teams around the league, a source pointed us in the direction of the San Antonio Spurs as a team that could wrangle in the 25 year-old swingman. San Antonio first inquired about Spencer Hawes and Turner back in January, and it's possible that the two parties could re-visit that package deal. The source believes the Spurs are the most receptive in giving up a first round pick, which in this year's draft is likely to be in the late 20s. News of San Antonio's interest was first reported by Sam Amick of USA Today. He had this to say:

One rival executive mentioned the San Antonio Spurs and Charlotte Bobcats as possible destinations via trade, though both teams could also wait until the offseason to see if they could simply sign him then.

The situation is still quite fluid.

In regards to Thaddeus Young, it seems likely that he'll be donning a Sixers uniform come the team's matchup against Dallas February 21st. The source stated that, barring an overwhelming offer, the plan is to hold onto Young and attempt to trade him leading up to draft night. With Thaddeus Young and the likelihood of receiving the Pelicans pick, Philadelphia could have some assets to play with if they'd like to move up the draft board.

The former Georgia Tech standout has been linked to a couple teams, most notably the Phoenix Suns. Phoenix seems to have turned their attention to other big men, however, as they've reportedly shown interest in Brandon Bass and Pau Gasol.
