Expect Evan Turner Trade Rumors All Season

evan_turner_2013With the Philadelphia 76ers in a rebuilding phase and the young Evan Turner off to a hot start and in the last year of his rookie contract, trade rumors are to be expected all season long.

A quote from Turner in a USA Today article by Jason Wolf at the beginning of November has people expecting it to happen sooner rather than later.

“[First-year 76ers general manager Sam] Hinkie is not my GM. He doesn’t owe me anything,” he is quoted as saying. “We’re going in different directions and everything like that.”

He also says in the piece that his agent hasn’t talked to 76ers front office about a qualifying offer.

A report from Fox Sports Ohio’s Sam Amico from Sunday states that should Turner be available, the Oklahoma City Thunder and Minnesota Timberwolves will attempt to land him.
