I've watched him play so many times last year his game is so smooth and polished and for the fact hat he has gotten better this year in every area makes me like him as a player even more personally I say he is the best 2 guard in the nation right now and will turn into a very good nba player he can play 3 positions with no problem he rebounds scores at will and his above average vision reminds me of Brandon Roy a lot just a better rebounder.
How can you say this dude is in the Top 5 guard right now? Just the other day Marcus Ginyard locked him down. He is a good player but you cant say he remind you of Brandon Roy. Brandon Roy had some tough team to play against and he showed up when the time came.
he is comparable to roy and he does play against tougher guys then roy(the ppac 10 although offensively have never been considered tougher then the big 10) who knows if he will ever be as good as roy though
Turner needs to develop a consistent shot first before he can ever be put in the same breath as Roy. He's completely overrated right now. I'd take Wes Johnson and Paul George over him if the draft were held today.
lol..overrated..now that is funny..so because he dosn't have a consistent shot hes overrated? you don't have to have a consistent shot if you can still affect the game and get rebounds and get assists..and doesn't turner shoot 50 something percent? and paul george is a worst shooter then turner so im not understanding youre logic. so you will take a player who shoots a lil better over a guy whos scores better,handles better,rebounds better, makes others around him better, and passes better?.....wait a min is that you donnie walsh?...stop wasting you're time on here donnie and get back to running the knicks
Is a great player, but he's not ever going to be as good as Brandon Roy. Turner has a decent jumper, but it improvable. Especially coming off screens.
i dont think any of us know how good a player will be. but he has the potential to be good like every other very good young player in college basketball
I think Evan Turner is going to be an All-Star level player in the NBA. I don't see any weaknesses in his game, but his jumper can improve and he can work on picking his spots better.
I think he will be a top 5 pick easy but as a player he will be very good but not great
Iggy is spot on. Evan Turner has a ton of versatility, is a good, not great defender, an excellent passer, an excellent ball handler, an excellent rebounder, with the length and quickness to excel. You can't tell me 5 players in college basketball who's performance has been better, and if you try you havent watched enough. This guy makes excellent decisions, is probably the best natural passer in college right now (shows more point guard skills than Evans or Mayo did) and is never out of control. He forces things when his team is down, but his aggressiveness comes from his desire to win. I mean come on, the kids putting up 22, 15 and 6! Those are absurd numbers against anyone. Coming from a kid that barely weighs 200 pounds, that very impressive.
And why would you say Paul George is a better prospect? He has less points, rebounds, assists, blocks, more turnovers, worse percentages from the field and from three playing substantially worse competition.
Turners an all around stud. He might not be a #1 option on a good team in the NBA, but he will be just as valuable as one. Jumpers are improvable, while things like IQ, court vision, and size arn't so much. I just hope he gets drafted into a good situation and NOTsome team like the GSW or the clippers. And this is coming from a michigan fan.
sorry edited lol
wait you cant say good situation and then mention golden state and clippers in the same sentence. those aren't very good situations. golden state is a mess with a coach whos mentally on early vacation and players who are very selfish, and the clippers are.......the clippers..nice collection of players but the organization is a mess
So then what team do you suggest?
how about the bucks? kings, the timberwolves. the warriors need to get rid of some guards as it is they dont need another one
The Clippers really need a player like Evan Turner.
The Best fit for Evan Turner IMO is the Minnesota Timberwolves.
id love to see him with the bucks if they decide to trade redd
Word. Turner and Jennings could be a great back court...assuming they both live up to expectations that is...
I think the Jazz would be a good fit, since they have the Knicks draft pick they should be able to get him in the top 10 somewhere.
sorry I meant to say not some team like golden state or the clips.
The bucks would be alright if they don't plan on re-signing redd. But utah would probably be best, that team really needs a scoring wing player. With the Kings they've been playing well with evans off the ball so they might keep him at the 2, and move martin to the 3 when he gets back, not leaving much room for another swingman
