He would look around and see a lot of fellow young players that just want a chance to play. Our whole emphasis in Philadelphia is about development and help our players. We are trying to be as good as we can be in sport science and growing up players physically and from a skill perceptive. He is an other one of our young lottery picks that we hope to grow the program with”. EuroHoops.net

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.
