When it was announced that the Celtics had signed small forward Evan Turner, Celtics fans were left asking one question: Where does Turner fit on the Celtics roster? It is well documented that Boston is very top heavy at guard, and extremely thin on the front line. The addition of Turner, listed as a shooting guard, does nothing but add to this problem. He brings aggressive defense and athleticism on offense to the team, but that's the last thing this team needs. Boston has players such as Rajon Rondo, Marcus Smart, and Jeff Green who's skill sets compare to that of the former Ohio State Buckeye.
Which Evan Turner are the Celtics Getting?
After being drafted by the 76ers in 2010, Turner was a key part on the quad before being dealt at the trade deadline last season. Before being traded, he was in the middle of the best season of his career, averaging 17.4 points per game, 6 rebounds per game, and just under 4 assists per game. After the trade, Turner struggled for playing time, and looked disinterested during the few minutes he was on the floor. If the Celtics get the Philadelphia Turner, they stole one from the entire league.
