THE 76ERS are no doubt listening to any and all calls as Thursday's trading deadline approaches, especially with the uncertainty surrounding the health status of center Andrew Bynum.

General manager Tony DiLeo has said numerous times that he is not willing to mortgage the future of the organization to get a player who will have only a short stay here.

The problem is that besides Jrue Holiday and Thaddeus Young, both signed to long-term contracts, who else is in the future plans? A report by ESPN's Chris Broussard said that swingman Evan Turner, who is averaging career highs in points (13.8), rebounds (6.6), assists (4.4) and minutes (36.2), is on the trading block, though an NBA source told the Daily News nothing is going on with Turner.

Turner is in his third year after being taken with the second overall pick in June 2010.

With 31 games remaining and Bynum saying Tuesday he is still weeks away from a debut with his new team, the decisions that will be made by the Sixers' front office will certainly be interesting.
