Since Evan Turner has a year left...let's say he doesn't re-sign here. Which unless we threw above market value towards him he wouldn't more than likely.

 

We get rid of one of the most valuable expiring contracts in the league AND Kidd-Gilchrist for a year of an overpaid and overrated Jeremy Lin? All the while, Houston makes out like bandits getting Hawes and Thad Young? Not only no...Hell no.

Yeah, matter of fact, that sounds like a vintage Rod Higgins trade.

Evan Turner is starting to pop up in the trade rumor mill as initial reports have linked the Bobcats and Mavs as interested parties.

Look for Turner's name to pop up a lot over the next two weeks, and for now both of the reports linking him to these teams appear to be very preliminary. If the smoke starts to thicken we'll let you know.

I'll leave this thread separate from Chuck's thread being that it is now being confirmed by legitimate sources that we are talking with the Sixers about Turner.

 

That being said, this reeks of a Bobcat-stamp approved trade...  Most likely giving up on a 20 year old, former No.2 draft pick in his sophomore season, as well as BG's contract, for an overrated, overhyped "scorer" who doesn't even average 20 points per game, shoots 43% from the field, and an atrocious 28% from three.  Yeah, that's the type of "scorer" that would carry us into the playoffs, lol.

Source: 76ers open to trading Evan Turner, Bobcats have some interest. No deal is imminent

OAKLAND, Calif. – The Philadelphia 76ers are open to trading forward Evan Turner and the Charlotte Bobcats have looked into acquiring him, an NBA source confirmed to the Observer Monday.

            Turner, a 6-foot-7 forward, averages 18.1 points and six rebounds this season for the 76ers. He could potentially add the scoring punch the Bobcats need to reach the playoffs for only the second time in their decade-long history.

            The question becomes what the Bobcats would be willing to offer, considering Turner would become a restricted free agent this summer. The team with his rights would have to make Turner a qualifying offer of about $8.7 million to restrict him.

            The Bobcats have assets they could throw into trades. They could have as many as three first-round picks in what should be a rich 2014 draft – their own and picks potentially owed them by the Portland Trail Blazers and Detroit Pistons.

However, the Bobcats might owe their own pick to the Chicago Bulls (to complete the Tyrus Thomas trade). The picks Detroit and Portland owe Charlotte have some protection; more than likely the Bobcat get Portland’s pick in June. It’s less likely they end up with Detroit’s.

            As far as making a Turner trade work under the salary cap, the Bobcats have Ben Gordon’s expiring contract, worth $13.2 million in cap value this season.

            Nothing about the Bobcats’ interest appears imminent to making a deal.

If we give up ANYTHING of worth, for a likely half year rental of Evan Turner, to "compete" for the playoffs...I'll openly wish for Marty Hurney to stop doing coke, brush up on his NBA news, and run this damn team.
