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.
