Yeah, in 13 MPG... that's 9/5/5 Per36. I'm not saying that Turner should get 36 minutes per game. But he would be one more wing that can make plays for them. This would not be nothing if you are a rival team in the West.
Those are his stats i have no issue posting that given the clippers number of wings I doubt he plays more than 13 minutes.. And 9 5 5 is not that great per 36 unless he is an elite defender.. Which those stats don't tell me.. Clippers starting to feel like the Knicks instead of loading up on power forwards loading up on wings haha..
5 AST Per36 would put him third on LAC for anyone averaging more than 4 MPG. And if you don't think LAC could use some ball movement then you haven't been paying attention. (17th in APG)
But my bigger point was that stats without context can be deceiving. Mentioning Turners numbers without mentioning his limited PT in ATL is pointless. It would have made more sense to mention his career stats or last years stats because his situation in ATL made this years stats irrelevant. His per36 numbers are pretty close to his career numbers. For good or bad, he is what he always was... A wing that you don't want shooting, but is capable of running your offense in spells.
