He probably moves into the top 10 with this, unless he completely bombs the agility testing which is his biggest red flag.

Wow 9'4..... with that reach, his frame is similar to Nikola Vucevic.

I've recently become a huge fan. He just looks like he'll eventually be a top big in the league. Whoever gets Turner might also get the best pick in the draft. Upshaw can also be a huge steal. Towns, Turner and Upshaw in one draft is crazy. All three can be BIG TIME players. The landscape of the NBA is about to change and centers will reign supreme once more. It just seems like there are more and more every year and more are developing every year. With so many rim protectors, I think the small-ball trend will eventually die.

I said his middle could be Gortat, but with the 9'4 reach, maybe i'll change that and Turner's middle could be Nikola Vucevic. 18-20ppg on a bad team or 15ppg on a playoff team.

Turner is a Center, that absurd talk about him playing PF or fans of the Kings/Magic trying to talk themselves into it,its quite ridiculous.

I think it's more talking themselves into Vuvevic/Cousins playing big four a la Pau Gasol. Problem is that neither can pass the way Pau does. Spacing-wise it makes sense. One guy goes in the post while the other spaces with a jumper. Phil Jackson liked having two tall guys up front and it proved catestrophic for the league. If a team can figure it out, they'll try to make it work.

Cousins is a really good passer actually, but I agree that neither he nor Vucevic can play with another big that isn't capable of defending power forwards. That makes Turner a bad fit for both of those teams, Porzingis is the guy they should be looking at.

I see him going to Indiana, but apparently he says he could see himself playing beside Drummond. Can Drummond guard power forwards? I foresee whoever drafts him will be either drafting him to trade him or they'll just be drafting him to draft the best player available. I don't think Turner will have the luxury of getting picked by a team that fits.

Developing Turner will be so fun. To me, he's locked down a top 10 pick in the draft.

I've been saying all year that I'd take Turner top five.

Centers are so very hard tocome by.

This is like the Drummond draft. His measureables and talent say YES! but his production and readiness say :banghead:

He struggles defending the PnR... :nonono: This is like repeating Monroe-Andre all over again on D.

He won't ever be able to guard fours. He isn't a four. Pau Gasol moves faster than Turner.

Has there ever been a big with his measureables who shot the ball so well?
