Another wing? Really??
Acquired by Indiana at the trade deadline, Evan Turner was a colossal disappointment (7.1 ppg, 41% Fg) for the Pacers. He played a whopping 4 minutes in the Eastern Conference Finals vs Miami. Turner reportedly got into a fight with Lance Stephenson prior to a playoff game vs the Hawks.
I don’t see a fit in Boston. The Celtics already have Avery Bradley, Marcus Smart, Marcus Thornton, Jeff Green, James Young, Gerald Wallace and Chris Johnson at the SG/SF positions.
Turner’s stock is at an all-time low. Maybe Danny Ainge can convince him to sign for one year at the veteran minimum and hope for a big pay off. But Turner isn’t going to sign unless he knows he’ll play decent minutes.
