Evan Turner starts summer slowlyPosted by Inside Hoops
The Philadelphia Daily News blog reports:
The Sixers lost their first game of the Summer League in Orlando today, 89-80, to the Oklahoma City Thunder as rookie Evan Turner struggled again, shooting just 1-for-6 from the field and scoring four points. He committed six fouls in his 27-plus minutes and still seems a step slow.
Coach Doug Collins and general manager Ed Stefanski both said they are not surprised by Turner’s slow start. Both point to the fact that he hasn’t played organized basketball since his Ohio State team was ousted in the NCAA Tournament in late March. Playing in games was not recommended to Turner by his handler for fear of injury.
