A top recruit out of Texas, Myles Turner chose to play home, where he'll have NBA eyes glued to him night after night.
At 6'11", Turner's strengths center around his rim-protection and ability to stretch the floor as a shooter.
He's an exceptional shot-blocker with great instincts and anticipation. Turner isn't exactly light on his feet, but he reacts quickly, and with a near 7'4" wingspan, he blends timeliness with length to patrol the paint.
Turner blocked 18 shots in five games during this year's FIBA World Championships.
Offensively, he's got a soft touch with legitimate shooting range for a center, though he's not much of a threat to generate offense in the post.
Without standout athleticism or a go-to offensive game, his ceiling isn't as high as the other bigs, but Turner's ability to stretch the floor and protect the rim still hold first-round value.
I actually wouldn't be surprised if Turner stayed two years at Texas.
