    Default Sixers will draft Turner?

    The image above appeared on a page on the Philadelphia 76ers' official website Friday afternoon under a title which read "Sixers draft Evan Turner." Michael Levin of 76ers blog Liberty Ballers tweeted the link before 2:30 PM ET. The address for the page was simple: Similarly constructed URLs for Derrick Favors and DeMarcus Cousins registered with errors, meaning the Sixers didn't just create these pages for a bunch of top prospects.

    There have been pretty clear indications Turner, the Ohio State wing who was the near-consensus best player in college ball this year, would be Philadelphia's pick at No. 2, but nothing as obvious as this. The page appears to be a readymade splash page to take over the Sixers' site after the second pick is named by David Stern on June 24.

    Many teams using breaking news (with ticket package pitches, of course) as a splash page in front of the normal home page. It appears the Sixers' web team got an early start, and someone apparently let it go live.

    UPDATE, 3:30 PM: The Sixers have removed the image from the page. The page is now just a blank black page with the subject line "Sixers draft Evan Turner." At the same time, the Sixers website now has blank black pages with the subjects and appropriate URLs for Cousins and Favors. This is straight-up CYA posturing -- those pages were not live when the Turner one was first found. We tested them.
    The image wouldn't embed correctly, so you have to click on the link or the file.

    There's no question they'll draft Turner.

    The question is whether they keep him.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    Philly has given Evan a promise.

    Take that however you want to.
