The NBA trade deadline is fast approaching and teams are doing everything they can to bring in that one man they feel can make the difference this season. 

One player who is floating about in trade talk purgatory is Philadelphia 76ers guard/forward Evan Turner.

Turner has been linked to various teams in the past few days and weeks but still nothing has yet to materialize.

Philadelphia initially wanted a first-round pick to be part of any deal for the 2nd man taken in 2010. But with the quality of the draft being so high this year, most teams are wary of giving away something that could prove so valuable. 

Because of this the Sixers have re-thunk their original demands and are now apparently settling for a pick in the second round, according to CBS' Ken Berger. 

Berger tweeted earlier "Unable to secure a 1st-round pick in a deal for Evan Turner, Sixers may now take a 2nd as part of package for '10 No. 2 pick, sources say."

Turner seemed like a dead cert to move according to near enough every social commentator, but his staying in Philly now looks all the more likely.
