In a deal that came through just before Wednesday’s 3pm deadline, the Flyers traded defenseman Andrej Mezaros to the Boston Bruins for a third round pick.
The NHL trade deadline is still a day away, but the Flyers are already busy.
From the second overall pick in the NBA Draft, to a deadline-day trade, Evan Turner is no longer a member of the Philadelphia 76ers.
The Sixers have acquired more draft picks.
Spencer Hawes is headed to Cleveland.
With the NBA trade deadline just two days away, I decided to write an open letter to Sixers general manager, Sam Hinkie.
We’re likely entering the final days of the Spencer Hawes and Evan Turner era of Philadelphia 76ers basketball. The trade deadline is February 20th, and it seems unlikely either guy will be on the team past that date.
“Oh, you guys are still here?” That must be what goes through Brett Brown’s mind every time he opens up the door to Sixers practice and sees Spencer Hawes, Evan Turner and Thaddeus Young.
It’s a month until the trade deadline, and Sixers fans are on edge.
It’s January 20th, and Thaddeus Young, Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes are still on the Sixers. Who would have guessed?
Thaddeus Young is playing the best basketball of his career, at a time that it might be the toughest for him to do so.
It’s a time of transition for the Philadelphia 76ers, for the organization and for the players. While general manager Sam Hinkie goes through the process of rebuilding the roster, there are a few veterans who are caught in the middle.
As I start writing this, there is the possibility that I will have to trash it at any second. We’ve been waiting since Sunday for a big NBA trade, now that the December 15th, ‘anyone can be traded,’ date has passed. Nothing has happened, and I feel like we’re going to see something soon.
Trade rumors have circulated about just about every player on the Phillies so far this season. Domonic Brown’s name has been mentioned often, Jonathan Papelbon is the subject of many rumors, and just last week the Phillies were reportedly ready to listen to offers for both Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels.
With Roy Halladay’s retirement, and today’s report from baseball’s Winter Meetings, the Phillies could go from the five aces they had just a few years back, to zero aces.
