Sixers to Work Out Derrick Favors, DeMarcus Cousins
Or are the Sixers trading down to No. 4? The Wolves, who pick fourth, could definitely use Turner and have been rumored to be looking for ways to get him. A package including Al Jefferson has been mentioned. For my money, Jefferson is too good to make up the difference between Turner and Cousins, so in such a scenario Philadelphia would probably need to give Minnesota back something of value. Unfortunately, the Sixers are a bit light in that department.
There's also the matter of the team in the No. 3 spot, New Jersey. If Philadelphia decides on one of the big men, swapping picks with Minnesota runs the risk of putting said big man in play for the Nets. If it's Favors, that goes doubly so. The Nets could also use Turner. If the Nets and Wolves want Turner, and the Sixers don't ... I'm not saying it'll be a bidding war, but it will at least be mighty interesting.
