    He can replace Beverly in that starting 5.

    would be a great get, he could play the point in a tall line up. Very under rated player, good defender as well

    Turner is the classic example of a player putting up empty stats on a terrible team.

    He sucks, so no thank you.

    The worst that could happen is he could get playing time.

    I don't think Harden would be too happy about that.

    Don't see how, Harden plays PG anyways. Give Houston a bigger player and defender in the starting lineup.

    They shoot around same percentages anyways.

    Evan Turner sucks and he can't shoot. Doesn't fit with our squad at all

    Boston , LA, and Minnesota are interested. I see him going to one of those teams.

    Sorry but the hatred for Turner is absurd. His second and third season stats, before they were as inflated as his fourth, were good. He is an excellent rebounder and an excellent passer. He's an average scorer, always in the 41-44% FG% range. Has shot well from the 3 in the past, and his career FT% indicates he could become a great 3pt threat.

    His attitude has been **** and he outright failed in his stint on the Pacers. His defense is average unless he's asked to carry one of the worst squads in history offensively with his clearly average offensive skills.

    He's worth the minimum and it looks like he's available for the minimum. Considering there's a chance he could get 10ppg/4-5reb/2asst/35%from 3 >> you could do WAY worse for the league minimum than take a chance on this guy and work on adjusting his attitude.

    We desperately lack depth in regards to a play-maker, specifically a perimeter play-maker when Harden rests or is in foul trouble.


    Beverley-Turner-Ariza-Tjones-Dwight has great defensive pressure potential.


    He (potentially) fits right in a deep bench lineup as well with his shot creation. This lineup has great potential for a high-paced offense when in desperate need for a change of pace or momentum.


    Canaan-Daniels-Turner-Tjones-DMo


    But would he accept the role and pay...doubt it. The Pacers had the exact same need. That being said, I don't really see much of any perimeter play-maker options out there (besides adding a third star).

    I hear that James and Evan are close.

    I don't think that my pic shows in my post. My post was a joke.
