Detroit Pistons Receive: Evan Turner
Philadelphia 76ers Receive: No. 8 pick, Jonas Jerebko, Kyle Singler
I'm not sure who helps Detroit in this draft at No. 8, so dealing the pick for established talent might be the way to go.
Philadelphia is in one of those spots where you hate to be—it's a good, crappy team. If there was ever a year to be a crappy, crappy team, next season would be it, given the talent projected to be available in the 2014 draft.
Call it the unintentional tank, which stinks in the short term but could pay off down the road. With Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker, Marcus Smart and Julius Randle expected to declare next June, landing a top-four pick could mean adding a franchise-altering talent.
Turner hasn't produced like a No. 2 overall pick, and his fit in Philadelphia is questionable. With the No. 8 pick and No. 11 pick, the team can add two solid prospects. Cody Zeller of Indiana, Steven Adams of Pittsburgh, Shabazz Muhammad of UCLA, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope of Georgia and Tony Mitchell of North Texas would all be options here.
In Detroit, Turner could get a change of scenery, where he'd have some promising big men to play off of. Still young, Turner should be worth the value to Detroit of a No. 8 pick.
