The franchise wants to gain future compensation in exchange for Evan Turner, Spencer Hawes, and Thaddeus Young, said the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity. With the most cap space in the league and an open roster spot, the Sixers will consider acquiring an expiring contract from a team looking to dump a salary. But that most likely will also involve receiving a draft pick. As a result, the 76ers are believed to be the most active team in trade talks leading up to the deadline. The Sixers have had discussions with all 29 other NBA franchises. Philadelphia Inquirer

Sixers forward Spencer Hawes, a noted Republican, is not a fan of president Barack Obama. He dislikes the commander in chief so much that he has toilet with Obama’s face on it in his bathroom. How did the world find out about what Hawes uses to wipe his rear end with? Teammate Evan Turner let the cat out of the bag by taking a photo of the toilet paper and posting it on his Instagram account. Philadelphia Inquirer

Philadelphia 76ers guard Evan Turner posted a photo to his Instagram of a roll of toilet paper that has a picture of President Obama on every sheet, and he says the photo is from 76ers center Spencer Hawes’ house. The caption of the photo reads, in part: “Using the toilet @spenceneedle crib and I noticed his toilet paper. I refuse to use it though lol.” For The Win

One rival executive mentioned the San Antonio Spurs and Charlotte Bobcats as possible destinations via trade, though both teams could also wait until the offseason to see if they could simply sign him then.

Thaddeus Young has drawn significant interest, but the Sixers would prefer to deal Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes. Both should be moveable, though I doubt either player gets the Sixers what they really want -- another pick in the 10-15 range. ESPN.com

The Philadelphia 76ers are still looking to move Evan Turner, Thad Young and Spencer Hawes, but the team is asking for a lot in return. Like most of the "blow-it-up teams," as one GM called them, the Sixers want first-round draft picks. They'll even take back a little salary to accumulate more picks, but clubs are reluctant to part with draft picks. ESPN.com

The Rockets, sources said, have been interested in prying veteran center Spencer Hawes away from the Sixers along with a future first-round pick, but they won't know until Thursday whether Philadelphia is prepared to part with that much for Asik or whether Boston's offer is the best available.

According to individuals with knowledge of the talks, the Rockets do not have a deal in place but were greatly encouraged when trade talks intensified Dec. 6, so much so that the confidence that they would be ready to pull the trigger helped inspire the Dec. 19 "deadline" as much as needing a deal by then to be able to move players again this season. As much as speculation has centered around Thad Young, if the Rockets are to do a deal with Philadelphia and former Rockets assistant GM Sam Hinkie, it is more likely to be a three-team deal in which the player the Sixers trade goes elsewhere. The Rockets likely would want draft picks in a deal, and Hinkie is not expected to give those up. If the deal was for Young, the Rockets and Sixers would not have had to wait until Dec. 15. And if the Rockets were to try to get one of the Sixers players who don't fit in Hinkie's long-term plans, it would be more likely for Spencer Hawes, a range shooter who could play next to Dwight Howard or as his backup with Asik gone.
