The number two pick in the 2011 draft hasn't ever really fully delivered with the Sixers, not playing like a 2nd overall pick.
Taking this in to account, along with the fact that he is set to become a free agent in the summer, Philadelphia is expected to send him packing come the NBA’s trading deadline.
Multiple teams have expressed interest in the former Ohio State star, but it is the Bobcats that seem to be at the head of the queue for the 25 year old, with Grantland's Zach Lowe saying Charlotte are 'absolutely serious' in their pursuit.
"The Bobcats are absolutely serious about pursuing Turner,per several league sources, and the Sixers could take on Ben Gordon’s expiring contract along with one of Charlotte’s extra first-rounders (likely the 2014 pick Portland owes it) if that closes the deal." Lowe said in his piece.
Charlotte is bordering on the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference and will likely need to acquire a new player in the trade market to boost their bid to hold on to that spot.
A likely first round series against the Pacers or the Heat probably won't last too long though.
