It’s getting to be that time of year. With the Feb. 21 trade deadline approaching, the rumors fly fast and furiously.

With the Sixers, general manager Tony DiLeo has been checking in with teams around the league but doesn’t expect there to be too much action before the deadline.

“We’re talking to every team in the league and if there is something we think that will improve the team, and not just in the short-term, we’ll see what we can do,” DiLeo said last week. “We’re looking to build.”

Nevertheless, that hasn’t stopped the talk surrounding the Sixers. According to ESPN.com’s Marc Stein, the Sixers have been shopping third-year guard Evan Turner or, at the very least, attempting to gauge the trade value of the former No. 2 overall pick in the draft.

When asked about the trade talk, Turner simply shrugged it off, saying it was something he neither could control nor had spent much time contemplating. As Turner explains it, the best is yet to come.

“I’m not a GM, so I really don’t know [my trade value],” Turner said. “I think it’s all about what our team needs, and that’s it. Whatever. I think that the best is yet to come with me in general, wherever it occurs.”
