Report: Celtics finalizing deal with free agent Evan Turner
|07.21.14 at 5:16 pm ET|
Turner, the second overall pick in 2010, averaged a career high 14.0 points per game last season, but he averaged just 7.1 after getting traded from the 76ers to the Pacers in February.
Turner made headlines in late April when he and Lance Stephenson reportedly got into a fist fight in practice during the Pacers’ first-round series against the Hawks. Turner wound up playing just 12 minutes per game in the playoffs, as he floated in and out of the Pacers rotation.
Turner is a 6-foot-7 swingman and former Ohio State star.
