Turner has averaged 11.1 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 3.1 assists over four NBA seasons. This doesn't make Boston contenders, but the Celtics get a chance to revitalize Turner's career.
According to the Boston Herald's Steve Bulpett, the Celtics --using a portion of their mid-level exception. -- will sign Evan Turner.
Turner averaged 17.1 points per game with the Sixers last season before being traded to the Pacers, where he took on a bench role. He's a versatile forward, standing at 6-foot-7, 220 pounds. A former No 2. overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, at the very least he's a young talent that gives the Celtics another option at the small forward spot should Jeff Green be moved.
