It's not hard to believe general manager Tony DiLeo when he reiterates that the 76ers will not be making any moves before the Feb. 21 trade deadline that will in any way hinder the future of the organization. That means: Don't expect the Sixers to really do anything, as the big decision in their near future still surrounds the aching knees of Andrew Bynum.
"I've talked with everyone throughout the league - made the phone calls, taken the phone calls," DiLeo said. "As I've said, we are not going to jeopardize our future to try to find something to help us short-term. We are looking to the future. We listen to what everyone proposes, and we propose some things, too. Things will probably heat up the closer you get to the deadline, they always do. We'll just have to see what happens.
