    Turner, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2010 draft, had a disappointing stint with the Indiana Pacers last season. The team posted terrible offensive and defensive efficiency numbers when he was on the court, and he was out of the rotation come playoff time. Averaging 7.1 points, 3.2 rebounds off the bench and shooting 41 percent from the field in Indiana hurt his stock and cost him significant free-agent money.

    Before being traded to the Pacers at February's deadline, Turner averaged a career-high 17.4 points and 6.0 rebounds per game for the Philadelphia 76ers, though he only shot 43 percent from the field and 29 percent from the three-point line in those 54 games, the vast majority of which were losses.

    This will be a reclamation project for Boston head coach Brad Stevens. Turner was a highly touted prospect because of his size, skills and ability to rebound well from the wing positions, and it's not as if all of that has gone away. He's been an inefficient NBA player for four years, though, and his defense needs a ton of work.

    Good team for him to go to. Can't believe he was the 2nd overall pick.

    Also LOL at that shot chart

    Evan Turner is a small forward with the size of a 2-guard.

    WOW.

    There IS a market for guys who can't play offence or defence.

    You're right. Turner is so bad at offense and defense there's no point in even spelling them properly.

    Dude is so bad he plays "offence" and "defence".

    He's a cheap warm body. Perfect fit for the Celts this year.

    Yeah but Beasley was all up in drugs and Oden had knee problems. Turner just sucked.
