Celtics to Sign Evan Turner

Evan Turner

The Celtics have agreed to sign 25-year-old swingman Evan Turner, and it’s likely for a portion of the mid-level exception. The final terms of the contract are not yet known, as the Celtics have around $7 million in non-guaranteed salary, so the amount of room they will have under the cap is not yet determined.

Turner averaged 17.7 points per game for a very bad 76ers team last year before being traded mid-season to the Indiana Pacers, where he averaged just 7.1 points per game over 27 games.

The former No. 2 overall pick has averaged 11.1 points per game over his four-year career.

Now, the question is – what do the Celtics do with all of their small forwards and guards? I smell another Trader Danny deal in the near future, involving Jeff Green, Rajon Rondo, or both.

Stay tuned…
