The NBA trade deadline is February 18th at 3pm and the Sixers are in a position to make a big move. With a few huge contracts on their books (Andre Iguodala 12.2M, Samuel Dalembert 12M & Elton Brand 14.8M) and many teams looking to trade high profile expiring contracts it could lead to a huge salary dump for the Sixers. With all speculation and rumors aside I figured I would explain the top possibilities available if any moves are to be made.
(Houston Rockets SG)
If McGrady were to come to Philly it would be a combo deal. ESPN NBA analyst Chris Broussard stated that their was a possible McGrady to Philly for the combo of Andre Iguodala and Samuel Dalembert deal in the works. This is an option and the money would even out but is very unlikely. This deal would only work if the Sixers decide to completely gut their lineup and start over from scratch not to mention as hard as it is to stomach Igoudala is the best player the Sixers have.
Chances of Happening: 15%
(Phoenix Suns PF)
If a trade would be made to Phoenix is would be more of a double switch sending the before mentioned combo of Andre Iguodala and Samuel Dalembert to Phoenix for Amare and a bench player, probably a young player like a Louis Amundson or an NBDL prospect like Taylor Griffin
Chances of Happening: 20%
This is the most likely situation and even Sixers Examiner Andy Jasner agrees: Posted Just Today "Iguodala could be headed to Phoenix"
Now what is really likely to happen
