CBSSports.com's Lauren Shehadi talked to Sixers rookie Evan Turner after practice today and the Sixers rookie sounds all cheery and upbeat. We call this "the before video."



A few tidbits here.
  • Immediately, the fact that Lou Williams had taken Turner under his wing stands out, as that's not exactly the best way for a new kid to get acquainted. But maybe that's a good introduction for the kid to how business works in the NBA.
  • He says he thinks he'll spend more time at guard with Jrue (Holiday) which is a comfort. Turner doesn't have the frame to be able to guard wings in the NBA and needs to spend his time on the perimeter. Andre Iguodala's overall game is better suited to those tasks.
