CBS Sports' Ken Berger reports the Sixers have lowered their asking price for swingman Evan Turner from a first-round pick to a second-round pick.
The Sixers dealt Spencer Hawes to the Cleveland Cavaliers earlier this morning in return for two second-round picks. It would not be unheard of for the Sixers to package one of those picks with turner to Charlotte in order to pry away one of Charlotte's numerous first-rounders.
The Hawes trade leaves the Sixers $11.7 million under the salary cap so they are the perfect team to take on an expiring contract or two.
Turner, 25, is in the midst of his best season as a pro averaging 17.4 points, 6.0 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game. Turner's numbers are solid but they are empty. He has not hit the three consistently, he goes through scoring slumps then redeems himself by stringing together a few big nights, and his attitude has been called into question.
