So, Turner is going to go from a 30 minutes a game player to being a "spot player"? Previously you've said the team should play Sabonis at the 5 and surround him with four defensive players (excluding Turner) because playing him at the 4 with Turner exposed Sabo's weakness as a perimeter defender. That's Sabonis' problem, not Turner's problem. Then proposing getting Grant and talking about Thad as if they are cures?
How about this. Just make a post saying you don't like Turner and let it go at that?
I like Turner. I like that he's a good teammate and an overall good guy. He's a really solid two way player. I think you could get more (maybe a lot more) out of him offensively if he could play the 5 on offense full time. He'd be an even scarier defender if you surrounded him with four solid defenders. I just don't like that when he and Domas are on the floor together both are lesser players than they could be. And, that wouldn't be a problem if we had better guys at the other positions.
Fast forward two years, assume he's being used largely the same way as now with the offense running through Sabonis. How likely is it that we resign him?
