2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Evan Turner


Position: Small Forward

Size: 6-7, 205

School: Ohio State, Junior


Strengths:
  • All-around offensive game
  • Great creator off the dribble who can score in multiple ways
  • Nice pull-up jumper
  • Outstanding body control when attacking the basket and not afraid of contact
  • Can initiate the offense because of his ball-handling and court vision
  • Ability to set up his teammates off the drive and dish
  • Excellent leaper who can finish strong at the rim
  • Can post up smaller defenders
  • Very active rebounder
  • Quickness and length helps him on the defensive end
  • Can guard multiple positions



    Weaknesses:
  • Turns the ball over quite a bit as he tries to do too much sometimes
  • Not a great free throw shooter
  • Must become more comfortable with his outside shot as he only attempted 25 threes last season because of his stellar ability off the bounce
  • Falls in love with his spin move too often

    Summary: Turner has come back from injury and not missed a beat, returning to his stud status as the favorite for National Player of the Year. He will almost certainly be the second-overall pick after John Wall and won't fall out of the top four.

    Player Comparison: Scottie Pippen. Pippen was often used in a point-forward role with the Bulls while running the triangle offense. Turner morphed into a point forward this season and was excelling at that position prior to his injury. Both players were multi-faceted with their game, but I think Turner has more star potential while Pippen was better off in a complementary role.
