76ers Analysis: Evan Turner Becoming A Valuable Asset

Throughout the first 44 games of the season, Philadelphia 76ers SG/SF Evan Turner has had a career season thus far. Although he has not been very efficient lately, he is currently averaging 18.5 ppg and 6.1 rpg. The main factor that comes into play when it comes to lack of efficiency and increased points is the fact the he is now the “go-to” player for the Sixers. In clutch situations, he has proven that he can step up to the plate. Turner is clearly not playing at an All-Star level, but he can be valuable to a team that is ready to win a championship now.

There are multiple destinations where I see Turner fitting in well. In Chicago, after the loss of Luol Deng, there is a void that needs to be filled and Turner could fill it nicely. If Turner were sent to Chicago, more than likely, Jimmy Butler would be involved in the trade. Butler, in his 3rd year out of Marquette, has shown great potential and is only 24 years old.

Indiana could be another possible landing spot for Evan Turner. He could help take the pressure off of Paul George and has the possibility of being a problem for other Eastern Conference teams in the playoffs. Indiana also has valuable players they could send in return, including Lance Stephenson. At the age of 23, he would be a great addition to the young and rising Philadelphia Sixers team.
