What if a team that drafts Evan Turner, turns him into a PG....
Does he have the skill set to be an NBA PG ?
Evan Turner will not be listed as a "Point Guard"
but what do you mean by Point guard? does it mean bring the ball up the floor? Because Evan Turner can surely do that. Will he? probably sometimes. Will he run the offensive sets like a PG? Probably some. Will he guard opposing Point guards? No. He will not. He'll guard NBA wings.
So when you ask will he play PG...I must reply with an answer or...Sort of. He'll do alot of PG things, but he wont be listed as a PG. Does he have the Skill set? Sure he does.
Well what I meant was, Is he capable of being a FULL TIME PG ? Can he do what Penny Hardaway did at 6'7 ? Lets just say Pistons ends up with the 2nd pick, and I think they need a PG. Could he run a team as the main starting PG?
I think he could...I dont think he will be a full time PG, but I think he'll be used more like how Brandon Roy is used with Portland. Sortof like a part time PG. I think he has the skill set though for sure
I think it all comes down to defense. If he can defend point guards (which I highly doubt), then he'll be able to play it full time.
I think he can play at full time point guard if he has a small scoring guard who can defend on point and create mismatches. Talking about Detroit, they could try to trade Stuckey and bring Turner to combine him with Ben Gordon in the backcourt.
i mean hes def not going to be listed as a point. but i think he maybe could make the transition. i mean i dont think hes as athletic as tyreke was with the ball but i think his point skillz are probably better than rekes
