Evan Turner SG/SF BOS 19 Days

Turner started Saturday in the win over the Bulls and had 19 points (7-14 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, and six assists in 32 minutes.

Turner had not done much off the Celtic bench, but was all over the court in the upset win in Chicago. Rajon Rondo (hand) is expected to be back for Wednesday's game against the Thunder, so Turner's fantasy relevance could be short-lived.

Turner will start at point guard Saturday against the Bulls, CSN New England reports.

Turner is getting the start with the tandem of Rajon Rondo (hand) and Marcus Smart (ankle) sidelined. The former Ohio State standout should see a considerable bump in minutes while that duo remains sidelined. The only obstacle in prohibiting this from happening is that Phil Pressey will likely see a jump in minutes as well.

Turner is only averaging 19 minutes on the court during Boston's first five games of the season.

Turner is currently coming off the bench in Boston and is limited as a result. However, his ability to play point guard, shooting guard, and small forward might bode well for him if injuries become a problem with the Celtics.

Turner is in the mix for minutes at point guard, and could actually be the front-runner to fill in while Rajon Rondo (hand) is out for 6-8 weeks, NBA.com's Emily Austen reports.

Coach Brad Stevens said with Rondo out, Turner is the team's best pick-n-roll option, and noted that Turner is better when he has the ball in his hands. Certainly as a coach, if playing Turner is inevitable, letting him handle the ball is probably the lesser of two evils, but he can be a bit of a black hole at times. However, if he's indeed ahead of Marcus Smart and Phil Pressey on the depth chart, he will be a useful fantasy option, at least until Rondo is healthy enough to return.

Evan Turner's agent David Falk explained that Brad Stevens was a big reason Turner elected to sign with the Celtics.

"I think Brad [Stevens] had an opportunity to take a player with a high skill set and a very strong desire to prove what happened in Indiana was a mistake," said Falk. "I think that Brad has a chance to put him in the right sets and have a great bargain in free agency. That's why we put this thing together. We were looking for a coach that felt like Evan could be an important contributor to the team." Turner will have to earn his minutes in Boston, and we don't see him as much more than a late-round flier at this point.

Evan Turner's previous coach Brett Brown spoke highly of Turner in a recent interview.

"I think his growth is infinite," said Brown. "I just have a soft spot for him. I feel like his better days are ahead of him. He's young by all standards [25], and I think the Celtics are really lucky to have him... If he can find the right environment, he has a chance to rebuild himself, and I know that it's in him. I really think that he's got something else to offer." Turner doesn't have too many supporters after his very unimpressive stint in Indiana, and while Brown has a "soft spot" for Turner, we'll need to see how he performs on the basketball court with his new teammates in Boston before we bump him up on our charts. Turner looks like a late-round flier.

The Celtics are reportedly finalizing a deal with unrestricted free agent Evan Turner.

Unrestricted free agent Evan Turner has reportedly received some interest from the Celtics and Timberwolves.

The former No. 2 overall pick has struggled to stay relevant in the NBA, scoring inefficiently and playing that Swiss cheese defense. His best statistical season came the first half of the 2013-14 season playing for a tanking Sixers team in the role of "someone has to score." He was then traded to Indiana midseason where his ineptitude was put on full display, showing he could not be "effective" without the ball in his hands. He wouldn't have much value on either of the aforementioned teams.

The Wolves have interest in signing unrestricted free agent Evan Turner.

The Pacers didn't extend a qualifying offer to him, and it's obvious there won't be much of a market for him. Turner is one of the least efficient players in the league and he is likely going to join the second unit with whatever team signs him. He won't be worth drafting in most fantasy leagues no matter where he lands

Evan Turner will be a restricted free agent this offseason, but he has likely played his last games wearing the Pacers uniform.

Turner was brought in to be a spark off the bench for the Pacers, but failed to gel with the team as he saw his minutes dip from 21.1 per game during the regular season, to a measly four total minutes throughout the entire Eastern Conference Finals. Turner's need to have the ball in his hands to be effective, mixed with his general lack of a jump shot didn't mesh well with the Indiana roster, and it seems all but certain that Turner will be wearing a different jersey next season.
