Report: Celtics join Wolves with interest in Evan Turner
Boston looking to add young wing after disappointing career following No.2 overall selection.
Evan Turner has received interest from Boston and Minnesota, a source told ESPN.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) July 14, 2014
Turner has fallen off a cliff since being drafted No. 2 overall in 2010 out of Ohio State. The Wolves were tied to interest in Turner last week. He averaged 14 points and five rebounds last season for the Sixers and Pacers, putting up big numbers for the tankathon Sixers and struggling to get on the floor for Indiana.
If you want a reason to possibly believe this could work, it comes down to this: Chauncey Billups. The idea is that sometimes players can bloom late as they learn more about how to play the game. That's the best case scenario here. But if the Celtics can add another wing for cheap, he might be worth a look.
