76ers have already sent Hawes to Cleveland as business continues.
The Philadelphia 76ers have lowered their asking price for Evan Turner just hours ahead of the trade deadline on Thursday, according to CBSSports.com.
It promises to be a busy last few hours for the Sixers, who have already announced a deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers for Spencer Hawes in return for second round picks.
However, they remain in the market for deals concerning both Turner and Thaddeus Young, with general manager Sam Hinkie holding out for a first round pick in return.
“Unable to secure a 1st-round pick in a deal for Evan Turner, Sixers may now take a 2nd as part of package for ’10 No. 2 pick, sources say,” Ken Berger of CBS Sports said on Twitter.
“Philly has plenty of room to take back salary for Turner and is averse to signing him to $9M qualifying offer this summer.”
Turner will become a restricted free agent next summer, which will see him due a qualifying offer of close to $9m if a team wishes to retain the right to match any offer received.
Philadelphia appear to be in full rebuild mode at this point after their season continues to falter despite a promising start.
With a deep Draft ahead, they will be looking to obtain as many picks as possible moving forward to further strengthen the roster, with plans to build around rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams.
Meanwhile, Turner has been consistently linked with an exit for months now, but it remains to be seen whether or not any interested parties can offer what the Sixers are holding out for even if their expectations and demands may fall.
