Sixers Trade Rumors Tracker: Latest Updates Ahead of 2014 NBA Trade Deadline
Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

There are so many trade rumors circling around the Philadelphia 76ers that they can make your head swirl. 

I'm assuming that's what happened to Evan Turner up above, seeing as he's been firmly embroiled in them all season long. Then again, he could just be reacting to a negative play or loss, as those have been quite common ever since the Sixers' surprising start to the 2013-14 season. 

It's all about the long game in the City of Brotherly Love. 

With Michael Carter-Williams leading the charge, Nerlens Noel holding down the fort at center and a number of incoming draft picks to work with in 2014-15, the Sixers are more concerned with tanking than winning at the moment.

And that means they're sellers at the deadline, as the team possesses a trio of established players who would be exciting acquisitions for more competitive squads: 

  • Evan Turner, the promising young swingman who has been making strides as a scorer. 
  • Thaddeus Young, the most established veteran whose newfound three-point stroke makes him even more versatile than before. 
  • Spencer Hawes, whose shooting ability makes him a coveted center. 

The Sixers could deal one of those players just as easily as they could move all three, which makes them one of the most exciting teams to follow as the trade deadline on Feb. 20 approaches. 

General manager Sam Hinkie hasn't been afraid to deal players in the past—remember what happened with Jrue Holiday during the 2013 NBA draft—and he won't be in the present. It's just all about finding the right deal for a team hoping to be much more competitive in 2014-15.
