After years of waiting, Evan Turner will finally have full control— the reigns have officially been handed down to him. Finally.
Now, many argue that Turner isn't big enough to play the 3. But really, at the end of the day, he's still a wing with similar responsibilities as a two-guard.
That being said, Turner is also the most capable wing player on the team to defend against big small forwards.
Last season Turner averaged 9.4 points and 5.8 rebounds per game in a setting that played against him (playing next to Iguodala and limited minutes off the bench). This year he can be the prime distributor next to Holiday and take control of the game.
We've seen flashes of greatness from him many times in the past, but expect it to come on a more consistent basis.
This season is where Turner can really breakout to his number two overall pick potential, and it can only go higher from here.
