07:32 AM ET 12.20 | Already more than 10 games under .500, Philadelphia may be looking to make a move. With the Houston Rockets supposedly ending trade talks regarding disgruntled backup center Omer Asik, Liberty Ballers has learned that one of the rumored names the Sixers were dangling has asked for a trade. Thaddeus Young, having been with the Sixers his entire career, has asked Sam Hinkie for a trade. Young and his agent, Jim Tanner, submitted a formal trade request to Hinkie and the Sixers weeks ago, according to a source close to Young. "Thad is ready to leave Philly," the source said. "He isn't with the whole tanking thing." ... [Young's] time with the 76ers is certainly running out. "Playing for the Sixers is wasting a year of Thad's career," the source said.

The constant rebuilding has taken effect. He's able to look at all the players that were there when he first came into the league and not on that team any more (Iverson, Iggy, Holiday, Bynum, and a host of others.) The team once again is rebuilding.

I think Cleveland has a need for a small forward

As a Philadelphian, they have never been rebuilding. They have been doing the typical patchwork moves that only continues the mediocrity. Now, they are re-building and doing the right thing. Thad is a class act and a real hard-working player. He is not a difference maker, however. I am ready for the 76ers to trade anyone and everyone to get in the top of the draft. Everyone is tired of nothing to get excited about.

And a coach too.

It's a shame the Young wants out of Philly, but if he truly feels it's just constant rebuild, then I can see his point.

It's a good question. He has great value. Where does he land if he doesn't want to end up in a rebuild situation? Or maybe he'll accept another team if they are rebuilding, just as long as it is not the Sixers.

come to LA

When u know your team is tanking, it's hard to constantly deal with the losing culture. If u really love the game as a player, if u can get somewhere else, it's probably best. That guy is 25 years old. No need to waste your prime years on a turd squad.
