    Default Evan Turner

    Looks like Evan Turner is back to being mostly irrelevant again. Could it be the 76ers system that is stifling Turner?

    I wonder if the 76ers might be willing to trade him in the offseason. With 1st rounders being more valuable, I wonder if that alone would work.

    Perhaps a 1st and Kobe Jones

    Probably doubtful, but I'd like to try and get him if possible.

    I don't think it's close
    We'd need to trade one of George, Granger, Hibbert to get him in my opinion.

    I'm a big fan of Turner, but I'm afraid you're right on this.

    You might be right, but I would not trade any of those 3 for Turner. I dont think he is going to be that good. Paul George is already better!

    Turner would play the point here I think, not the 2, or would be the 2 but be in control with the ball in his hands the majority of the time on offense, something PG can not do.
    Why so SERIOUS

    Whatever he is or would be, I still would never trade Paul George or Roy Hibbert for him. Not even for him and a 1st. He just simply is not that good. Cannot shoot at all.

    Turner at the point? Won't work out for us, our passing is horrible.
    If we get Turner then I'd want him to play the 2 and George at the 3.

    He's a 2nd year player who was the 2nd pick in the draft, and has barely scratched his potential. NO CHANCE

    Let me put it to you this way, that would be like thinking we might trade Paul for a 1st and a bench player

    Beasley, #2 tons of potential, did not fit the teams system, traded after his 2nd season, lol granted he had problems, but he was traded for 2 2nd round picks, I don't think Turner could be had for that much, but he really does not have a place on that team, if it was a trade that benefited both teams I think it would work.

    Lets say, Evan Turner, Spencer Hawes, 2nd for DC, Hibbert, and a 1st would get it done.

    Problem with 76ers is they already have Holliday running the show, and their 2 guard position is way too deep, SF is deep as well. They only thing they really need is a superstar at the 2 position, or a true PF that is young with potential and they will be a top team that can compete for a championship in a couple years without Turner.

    I think they would be more likely to try to trade him if they got someone like Bradley Beal.

    You forgot to mention that it allowed them to sign Lebron James and Chris Bosh. I'm not sure they had the cap space to sign both and if that's the case, think of it as trading Beasley for James or Bosh. That also means their trading partners were limited because they had to find a team with enough cap space to absorb Beasley without sending any salary back.

    His contract was not that bad, they would have been smarter keeping Beasley and just adding Lebron and then having money to put other role players around them, Beasley was only owed 5 mil that season, it is not like it was an atrocious contract or anything.

    They didn't dump him to clear future cap space, they dumped him because there was no other way to sign the big 3 while keeping Beasley. Cap restrictions did not allow it. So the only way was to dump him without taking salary back, and that is why Minny got him for pretty much free.

    Where does an unproven SF/PF fit in with the addition of Bosh/James? There's something to be said for Chalmers currently being the starting point guard. James and Wade are way better and yet they chose him to remain there. Why not make your line up Wade, James, Beasley, Bosh, Anthony? In their situation, they could afford to toss Beasley to the curb. Even the T'wolves tried. This is not the same situation as expecting Evan Turner to be traded for nothing. Show me more top 5 picks that were traded for 2nd round picks in their second season for virtually nothing. The Heat did this because they got Lebron and Bosh. That's the facts of the situation. When you have Wade, Lebron and Bosh, you don't need a guy like Beasley. What does he add? The Heat set up their team the way they did for a reason. How hard is to cover Lebron? He took junk to the championship. Bosh? He took junk to the playoffs. Wade? He won a championship(w/ Shaq). Beasley?... Smokes weed? With all the attention paid to Lebron, Wade and Bosh, a sharp shooter is much more needed than a tweener who will sit behind Lebron and Bosh. Look at the damage Chalmers is doing burying 3's. They pay no mind to Chalmers. Unless Beasley decided to become a 3 point specialist, Heat did exactly what they needed. They threw Beasley in the trash because he contributed nothing to a team that immediately went to the championship in their first season. If the Heat didn't add Lebron and Bosh, they never would have traded their 2nd pick at 20 years old for nothing.
