Sixers Ready to Deal Evan Turner?

The Sixers would trade Evan Turner for Dion Waiters “in a heartbeat,” a source tells Bleacher Report’s NBA Insider Jared Zwerling.  The Sixers are worried about what Turner may command in restricted free agency this summer and could be looking to deal him sooner than later.

However, making that move might not so easy for the Sixers, according to a tweet from ESPN NBA insider Chris Broussard, Cavs owner Dan Gilbert is very fond of Waiters and isn’t ready to deal the former No. 4 overall pick in the draft.

While Turner is still having a solid season, the Sixers might want to sell-high on him.  He is on pace for career highs in points, rebounds and steals while shooting a very respectable 45.7 percent from the field.

However, his turnovers have spiked a bit over his last five games with 4.6 per night in that span. Sixers coach Brett Brown was also recently upset with Evan Turner for mental lapses late in a loss to the Clippers – Turner’s body language has been an issue during this time here in Philly.

So Sixers fans, would you make this trade?  Evan Turner for Dion Waiters?
