Could Noel and possibly Stauskas, Covington be Hawks-bound?

A source has confirmed that the Sixers have had multi-player trade talks with the Atlanta Hawks. Yahoo Sports reported that the teams are discussing a deal centered around packages that include the Sixers center Nerlens Noel and Hawks point guard Jeff Teague. Noel will enter the final year of his rookie deal next season. Meanwhile, Teague will become a free agent following the 2016-17 season.

Sixers shooting guard Nik Stauskas and/or small forward Robert Covington could be included in the deal, according to a source.

The Sixers tried to send Stauskas, point guard Ish Smith and one of their late first-round picks to the Hawks at the trade deadline in exchange for point guard Dennis Schroder.

This time, the Sixers are shopping Noel and center/power Jahlil Okafor  to "at least 15 teams" to see where they can get the best deal, according to the source.
