I know the Warriors NEED a big man, but I feel like Evans is the perfect cog in a winning machine. A perfect 3rd option behind Monta and Steph, Turner seems like a player that truly makes his team win more games. Plus he averaged 9.2 rebounds! Turner seems to be able to fit in perfectly on a team and fill the role needed.
We know Beans is much better than what he showed this year; when healthy he's a solid 5. We know Randolph is one of the better rebounders out there and Monta plus Steph are good rebounding guards. Our squad could be high scoring and respectable on the boards while being almost mediocre on defense. If we can stay healthy, I think we finally have a roster that we can assign good roles with
Oh lord no. Not with Monta. That would not work in my mind. If we draft turner, Monta has to go. That is too many people that need the ball in their hands to be effective. I dont mind having 2 ball handlers in the game but 3 is just too much, unless Monta would be comfortable going back to defering to someone else.
Keep in mind that despite his listed position, Turner in essence played PG for Ohio St. He initiated the offense and that is when he was special. When he went to playing off the ball, I thought he looked much more pedestrian. Did not seem to have a great feel for playing off the ball say like a Wes Johnson does.
