Dei Lynam takes to Twitter and e-mail to answer your questions in the latest installment of Dei-Mails.

Stebin: Will the Sixers trade a veteran for more draft picks and more losses?

Lynam: I have always felt that the Sixers would make some move before the Feb. 20 trade deadline.

I am in agreement with you that they will look for draft picks or young talent over anything that requires them taking on big salary.

The losses are mounting with or without a move. The Sixers have encountered teams wanting to play at their pace and putting defensive clamps on them. It has happened too frequently over the past two weeks.

Below are the three veterans who would draw the most trade interest, along with their season averages.

Evan Turner: 18.3 points, 6.1 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 44 percent FGs, 81 percent FTs

Thaddeus Young: 17.3 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.8 steals, 49 percent FGs, 71 percent FTs

Spencer Hawes: 14.1 points, 8.9 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 1.4 blocks, 48 percent FGs, 41 percent threes, 77 percent FTs
