Re: Evan Turner
I really like this kid and I think he could work his way into the first round in a year or two. The pros are that he is a legit 6-6, maybe 6-7 which is plenty big enough to play SG in the NBA (which is what I think he will end up being), he is willing to go inside, and he is clutch. The cons are that he needs to add weight, he isn't an NBA level shooter, and he does sometimes make careless/stupid mistakes.
This kid already has an NBA level game, he just needs to beef up, tighten up his game some, and most importantly work on his shot. If he is ever going to be more than a 12th man in the NBA, he needs to be able to hit the 3's that are required of NBA players now. All three of things should be pretty easy for him to acheive and considering how much he has improved just this season, I would be willing to assume that these things won't be as much of an issue next season.
As for what he will be in the NBA, I could see 6-10pts, 3-5rebs, and a few assists. Probably a backup, but a good player that shouldn't have a hard time sticking in the NBA.
