Report: Evan Turner ‘received interest’ from Celtics

The Celtics have expressed interest in free agent swingman Evan Turner, according to ESPN’s Jeff Goodman.

The second overall pick in 2010, Turner’s value may be at an all-time low since seeing a serious dip in production after being traded from the 76ers to the Pacers this past season. He averaged just 7.1 points (41.1 FG%), 3.2 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 27 games down the stretch for the Eastern Conference semifinalists.

Despite Philadelphia’s willingness to dump Turner for little in return (Danny Granger‘s expiring contract and a second-round pick), the Ohio State product has shown flashes of why he was picked behind John Wall in 2010. Turner also has a longstanding friendship with Celtics big and fellow former Buckeye Jared Sullinger.
