Philadelphia 76ers: Analyzing the Andre Iguodala/Evan Turner Controversy

Many consider it to be an either/or proposition.

Either Andre Iguodala or Evan Turner. Two players, both of whom are best suited to play the exact same position—just ask 76ers president Rod Thorn.

And because of that, Turner—the No. 2 pick in the 2010 NBA draft—has been "stuck" behind Iguodala in Philadelphia's rotation.

It's fair to wonder just how much Turner's development has been stunted since available minutes at the small forward spot are few and far between. It's also fair to point out that Turner hasn't done much to force himself into the conversation, either.

76ers head coach Doug Collins inserted Turner into the starting lineup (at shooting guard) earlier this week, and so far, the results have been mixed. Two games into the latest iteration of the Turner-Iguodala experiment, it remains to be seen if they can develop a long-lasting rapport playing alongside each other.

The similarities between the two are so apparent that fans and columnists alike have been clamoring for the 76ers to trade one of them since last December—a month into Turner's rookie season.

But with Philadelphia on top of the Atlantic Division, no move appears to be imminent. So while the 76ers are still figuring out how the puzzle will ultimately come together, let's take a look at some of the reasons why the Turner/Iguodala debate continues to rage on.
