Your Morning Dump… Where Evan Turner’s agent is laying down some serious BS

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

“We picked Boston as much for the historical culture and for Brad, as for anything else,” Turner’s agent David Falk told CSNNE.com on Tuesday.

Falk, who also represents Jeff Green and Jared Sullinger, discussed how Boston’s use of versatile players in the past influenced his client’s decision to sign with the Celtics.

There were two teams that Turner was seriously considering. Falk declined to reveal  the other team, but a league source indicated that it was the Minnesota Timberwolves.

“If you look back into the 1980s when you had Danny (Ainge) and (Dennis Johnson) in the backcourt, (Kevin) McHale and Larry upfront … there was a lot of diversity in the way the players were used,” Falk said. “Evan’s a multi-dimensional player.”


Easy there, David Falk. You can relax on the BS machine because your client finally has a job.

Let’s be honest here. The real reason Evan Turner chose Boston is because his only other option was Minnesota.

People everywhere on social media are sh*tting all over Turner. I’m not joining that fray. As Jay said yesterday, Turner is a low risk, high medium reward guy.

On Page 2, Rajon Rondo is spotted in Puerto Rico.

Rondo was checking out a finals game for the Puerto Rican league.

Meanwhile, Kelly Olynyk is north of the border with the Canadian men’s team.

Olynyk and his teammates are off to Europe to play 11 exhibition games.

And that concludes our segment, “Where in the world are your Boston Celtics?”

    The Celtics of the 1980`s showed “a lot of diversity in the way the players were used”.

    Nobody asked Evan Turnover`s agent to expound on that?

    • Curt Hays

      Well like the games when the Chief was the Point Guard and Larry Bird was the water boy. Very diverse lineups.

      • P Funk

        I laughed out loud at that one

      • RedsLoveChild

        That`s true….along with those times Jerry Sichting played center.

      • CFH

        Well played sir.

  • LA Flake

    I really really hope Donald Sterling gets to keep his team just to see if Doc will really walk away. And it’ll be grrrreat for us!

    • RedsLoveChild

      The “entertainment value” alone would be worth it to see Sterling hanging around. Never underestimate the amount of drama a crazed, scorned, senile billionaire can create.

      Doc wont walk away. Don’t let the reports fool you. He knew Who and how Sterling was before he forced his way there. I’m not buying this one bit, Docs doing his part to hurry the process.

      • RedsLoveChild

        Doc walking away from $7M per year, without having something just as lucrative already lined up?

        Not in this lifetime!

    • CFH

      As long as Doc doesn’t walk right across town to the Lakers.

      • LA Flake

        Oh, man…That would be RayAllenesque.
