@Mr. Bitter Weddle is actually the perfect free agent addition for the Raiders, no matter who they draft, and for several reasons. First of all, he still plays at a high level, and, he now has something more to prove, especially if he gets to play his former team twice. Second, while his age might seem like an issue to many people, his age actually works to the Raiders favor. First, because he provides there secondarywithveteran leadership that will be sorely lacking with Woidsons exit, and second, because he wont require a long term commitment. The Raiders can tie up a chunk of money that theyneed to spend, but not get in the way of future extensions or contracts.
My first edition. Only one trade. I make picks using multiple big boards from different sites, and my own scouting. I try to fill needs as best as possible. This will change when FA moves define themselves.
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.
