Potential Trade Packages and Landing Spots for Thaddeus Young
Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sport

Thaddeus Young could be on the move—eventually.

One could argue the same holds true for every member of the Philadelphia 76ers who doesn't call himself Michael Carter-Williams or Nerlens Noel, but Young may be actively looking for an exit.

A source told Liberty Ballers' Jake Fischer that Young submitted a "formal trade request" to the Sixers, thereby suggesting he already has one foot out the door. But like most players linked to trade demands do, Young denied the report.

"I just think it is funny that it is 'sources' that say I asked to be traded," Young said, per CSN Philly's Dei Lynam. "I am here, ready to give 110 percent each and every game. I am ready to just play and try to win basketball games."  

Requested or not, a trade could be imminent—or happen before the Feb. 20 deadline.

Young's contract runs through 2016-17, and if the Sixers don't see him as part of their future, financial plasticity and promising prospects are king for teams looking to start over.
