Trade talks between the 76ers and Rockets over center Omer Asik are heating up again, with the trade deadline looming at 3 p.m. Thursday.

CBS Sports reported that the Sixers could be the landing spot for the unhappy 7-foot big man.

Reports in December stated the Rockets’ asking price would be Thaddeus Young.

The Sixers are $11 million under the salary cap and have an open roster spot, so they could also make the move without relinquishing a player. Metro
