Turner talking like a goner

07:24 AM ET 11.25 | As he's become more a part of the offense, Evan Turner has enjoyed a breakout scoring season. Beyond this season, however, it's hard to know Turner's future in Philadelphia, and whether or not he'll be "swimming" there or somewhere else. He likely will be a restricted free agent this summer, which is something he really seems to understand could lead to his departure from the City of Brotherly Love. "I really don't [think about what's ahead]. All good things, I hope," Turner said. "Wherever I end up, I feel like I have an opportunity to do well and keep getting better as a player." In a contract year, he's showing just how much value he actually carries, and if he keeps it up, he should end up handsomely rewarded. Whether by Philadelphia or somebody else, we can't know at this point.

He's in a contract year. Nobody is going to trade for him, especially in today's NBA.

No sir, we are good with what we have. Trading for Deng makes zero sense for the Sixers but your team yeah. If the Sixers had the choice they would trade Young and Turner. I would take a sixth man type player and first round pick for one. Or late lottery pick straight up for Turner.

Other teams will take their chance if they really like him. The team who trades for him will pay him unless he gets injured.

Nobody will make a risk like that unless it's to offload a contract knowing Turner can flat out walk and test free agency.

The only teams that will be looking to Turner is to offload a contract like you said or perhaps a playoff ready team who think they can sign him at the risk of giving up a first round pick. That is a gamble because he can always walk. Better to the Sixers is more draft picks with the chance to move up in the draft. I don't see many teams giving up a first round pick but we will see what happens.
