Let's talk centers:
Clearly better than Turner: Embiid, Jokic, Gobert, KAT
Arguably in the same range: Sabonis, Bam, Ayton, Val, Vuc, Wood, Capela
Maybe I missed one or two but the point is there are not many.
Turner is 6'11 and big enough to play with anybody. He can also run. Solid percentages and has enough of an outside shot to create space. His defense was phenomenal lately - block crazy. He is not a star on offense but is a threat. Would be a huge improvement for teams that need an inside presence and can fit most systems. He is not "an oft injured role player."
PJ and Bridges - picks 12 in consecutive drafts. Both are 12/6 guys. I know you are not saying these guys are worth too much. Fringe starters that could be good backups or solid fifth guy on the court. Not playmakers.
Graham back down to 14/5 after a better year last year. Not a good sign when stats descend in a contract year. Amazing stat of same 2 percentage as 3 percentage 37%.
I like Rozier but he is 6'1. His 3 point % is solid. He is also streaky. Not really a sg but not really a pg either - definition of combo guard. Value is limited by $18 mil expiring contract.
Right now, CHA has Hayward, Melo and a bunch of fringe guys. A center like Turner would give them an edge and make things easier for Hayward and Melo.
Saying you would not trade PJ for Turner straight up = homerism (or, in this case "Babe Ruth size Homerism")
If Val is in the same range as Turner, why the hell would Charlotte trade 11+Bridges+Washington+Graham for Val?
It's a wonder why the Pacers didn't win 60 games and were the NBA's best team this season with all this value you are putting on their players
PJ and Bridges - picks 12 in consecutive drafts. Both are 12/6 guys. I know you are not saying these guys are worth too much.
Did you really just post this when Myles Turner himself is a 12/6 guy?
Guys, keep him. You clearly value him way more than any other team and Charlotte is certainly not trading that package you want for him
