UPDATED: Confirmed. Bobcats Exploring Trade for Evan Turner

Recommended Posts

Sorry....I can't agree with saying a HOFer wouldn't flourish in the league today. IMO the league and competition was better when they played.

Regardless....doesn't change the fact that they knew MKG wasn't a shooter when they drafted him and that giving up on him after a year is ridiculous.

 

Guess you didn't read the part about "fouling out" did you?  It has nothing to do with talent, Rodman couldn't do what he did because of the fouls.  And that is also why it's an offensive league now.

Oh, I read it. I just don't agree with your hypothetical claim.

Jordan was a train wreck in DC & when he got here but since buying the team he's actually been really good. It was a smart move to dump all the high paid veterans & rebuild, a great move to hire Cho & give him full control, & a brilliant move to rebrand. Albeit the last one was a no brainer.

 

The only good thing I have seen Jordan do from an operations perspective is hire Cho and get out of the way. 

 

From a PR perspective, the rebranding was a great move.

Probasketball talk says the deals for turner would be 

 

Gordon plus portlands for turner 

 

or 

 

Gordon for Turner and Jason Richardson 

 

Richardson has a player option for almost 7 million which he will surely take which would eat up any chance for us to go after a free agent in the off season.

I'm guessing it would be the second deal that we would have to take it or leave it...  Sixers don't want J-Rich's contract coming back next year.  They'll already be getting 13 mil in free space from BG's contract, I expect them to push the envelope and demand we take J-Rich as well.

 

I don't want him, but if we're dumb enough to do it, at least we'd have a solid three-point shooter coming back for BG.

Gordon + Portland pick for Turner would actually be a really good move if you're certain you can sign him long term for a reasonable price.

He fits Charlotte's biggest need & is better than whoever you would pick at the end of the first round. By had img him you can also take the BPA instead of reaching for a shooter.

His percentages are down but he's pretty much the only scoring option in Philly. He'd get open looks playing with Jefferson & Kemba. Not to mention having a scorer in the floor would keep teams from double teaming Al.

I would definitely give up Gordon for turner and Richardson. Yea rich has a bad contract but he gives you a solid bench scorer and et would flourish in the starting lineup here. Also allows the team to look to move Henderson and the Portland pick for some inside help like Gibson or Bass.

He's a 20 year old kid with a little over 1 year of NBA experience. There is NO WAY you can call him a bust at this point.

Thomas Robinson was cut by was it two teams last year?

Yup, just about to post that up.

IMO, two good scenarios.

From Bonnell. What Chuck initially posted seemed like a guy trying to drum up traffic for his own site, but then Bonnell posted a whole blurb on it and that we are interested in Turner. And Bonnell has started getting it more right than not over recent years. He's shot down a lot of rumored trades that fans were buzzing about last season as well because they weren't true.

Yea, the rumor seem to be heating up now.

By: Dan Feldman

One of the most obvious trade candidates around the NBA is Evan Turner.

Both a talented young player on an expiring contract and not so good and so cheap that his current team wants to keep him, Tuner would fit in a variety of potential deals.

There’s only one hitch. The Philadelphia 76ers have yet to find any takers.

Well, how about the Charlotte Bobcats?

Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer:

The Philadelphia 76ers are open to trading forward Evan Turner and the Charlotte Bobcats have looked into acquiring him, an NBA source confirmed to the Observer Monday.

Nothing about the Bobcats’ interest appears imminent to making a deal.

Especially with Jeff Taylor out for the season, Turner would upgrade Charlotte’s wing depth. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is still a bit of a project, and Chris Douglas-Roberts is a good replacement-level player, but still a replacement-level player.

Consider the Bobcats are in playoff position – by only one game over the Detroit Pistons for the No. 8 seed – they might want to sacrifice the future for the immediate upgrade Tuner could provide.

Here are a couple trades that might make sense for both sides:

1. Turner for Ben Gordon and the Trail Blazers’ first-round pick

Charlotte could have three first-round picks this summer – its own (though it goes to the Bulls if it’s outside the top 10), Detroit’s (top-eight protected) and Portland’s (top-12 protected). The Bobcats’ own first-round pick is likely too valuable to surrender for Turner, as is the Pistons’. The Trail Blazers’ pick, which will almost certainly fall in the 20s and be conveyed this year, seems to be a fair price.

Because the 76ers are under the salary cap, they could take back Gordon’s larger expiring contract in a trade. Perhaps, the Bobcats would have to send Philadelphia cash to neutralize the real-dollar costs of the swap, but Gordon would at least be off the books following this season.

2. Turner and Jason Richardson for Gordon

Richardson, who’s 33 and has missed the entire season due to injury, has a $6,601,125 player option for next season that he’ll almost certainly accept. That’s negative value for any team, especially a rebuilding one like Philadelphia.

Paying Richardson next season would be Charlotte’s tax for getting Turner. The 76ers wouldn’t get any future assets other than a cleaner slate from which to work.

There’s a good chance Philadelphia just lets Turner walk this summer to get that clean slate, anyway. But there’s certainly a team – maybe Charlotte – that value a half-season of production from Turner. The 76ers should cash in on that and get value before losing Turner.

If we get Turner I really doubt we end up giving up to much to get him.

It would cost probably just the Portland pick and some filler , probably get a third team involved with the Gordon contract. MKG is not going anywhere , they are not about to give up on the number 2 pick this early.

The idea of getting Turner would be to add him to the core Of Kemba , Henderson , MKG , Zeller , Jefferson not getting rid of any of these assets and going for a playoff run . This would likely mean we would be going all in with this roster for the next few years and we would not have a draft pick in this draft probably unless we luck into a Detroit pick. Detroit is such a train wreck right now they could be banking on getting a top pick in the next draft from detroit as the pick is only number one protected next year.

Agree. Fans are overreacting on the Turner rumor. I believe it'll be cheaper than what most people think.

I think if we go with the second option and pick up Richardson we will probably go and make another move as well and pick up Gibson with the portland pick and move some backups like sessions with pargo filling in decently. 

 

Then we will go all in with this team the next 2 years . 

 

Kemba / Pargo 

Turner/ Richardson/Taylor

MKG / Henderson

Gibson/ Zeller/McBob

Big Al / Biyombo 

 

Its not the most ideal team and probably 6 seed in east , but lets be honest were probably never gonna be a top team we just need to get hot at the right time to have a chance in the playoffs. 

 

Then hope next year Detroit gets lucky in the lottery and we pick up that pick to add to the decent core we would have.

all these soft ass "scorers" other than durant and a few others benefit from the lack of defense played in the NBA. put some pressure on them or deny the lane and they're shooting 35%

Then Im guessing MKG is shooting at 5%?

That would be some very bold moves! If MJ really want to WIN, I'd can def be interested with this team if these two trades happen.

Turner and Gibson could push this team 2-3 more spots in the EAST. I think we can def make some noise in the Playoffs.
