Regardless, Turner never seemed comfortable with his new team. And as the Pacers collectively started to slide, the addition of Turner was viewed as one of the reasons. "Everybody is down on (Turner) because of how the 'trade' happened and what happened in the trade and how Indiana played," Sullinger said. "People misunderstand Evan. He's a great basketball player, a great teammate. I've known him for years. He's all about winning. That's his main goal." CSNNE.com

So, it’s clear the Celtics could use a center. Sullinger’s father, Satch Sullinger, explains just how big a priority that is to Boston. Sullinger’s father, via ABC 6: “Next year, I think he’s going to get finally get to play his true position of power forward. And so, at that point, he’s going to come home and he’s going to trim down and shed some pounds, so he gets a quicker step and a little more mobility. Because they’ve kind of promised him that they’re going to get a center.” Sullinger has played well when healthy, 13.3 points and 8.1 points per game last season. If he loses weight, that could help him avoid injury. NBCSports.com

Last summer, Sullinger was not cleared for full basketball activity and he was unable to work himself into premium shape. This summer will be different because Sullinger is fully recovered. “It’s very exciting because I get to develop and find out who I can be,” he said. “We’ll see. Hopefully, I’ll have some hobbies — working out and conditioning — I can carry over for the next four months.” When asked whether he would like to follow Love’s physical path, Sullinger said: “We’ll see. It will be a totally different Jared Sullinger coming back next year. Summertime is the time to figure out your game, you watch a lot of film. I have a lot of free time and with that free time, a lot of conditioning, a lot of weightlifting, and a lot of basketball.” Boston Globe

“So the draft is really important, and now we have a lot of assets. Draft picks are always tradable. Sometimes players aren’t always tradable, once they expose themselves on the court. Draft picks almost always are tradable. But development is really important for us, and I’m happy with the development of Kelly Olynyk and Phil Pressey and Jared Sullinger and Vitor (Faverani). Vitor has been a little inconsistent, which you’d expect with inconsistent minutes and a guy coming from playing European ball his whole life. It’s a whole different life.” Boston Herald

Reached this morning, Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said the team will appeal to the league for a reversal on the second of two Flagrant 1 fouls called on Jared Sullinger last night during the Celts' 129-98 loss to the Nuggets. Sullinger, who is just one Flagrant 1 foul away from a game suspension, after the two called against him last night in a 23-second span in the third quarter, was called for the first Flagrant 1 when he knocked J.J. Hickson to the floor on a drive to the basket. The second was called when Kenneth Faried absorbed a Sullinger elbow to the chin as the Celts big man attempted a turnaround jumper. Boston Herald
