Former Celtic, Evan Turner, may be buyout candidate of interest to Danny Ainge
Barring another trade, Evan Turner is expected to get a buyout from @Timberwolves.— Sean Deveney (@SeanDeveney) February 5, 2020
The @celtics are expected to be among teams interested him -- but no roster spot (as of now).
Another East contender would have interest, too, I'm told. More on @HeavySan :https://t.co/dpSQHbE6Lt
ET spent two seasons in Boston, and his best production came in the 2014-15 season when he averaged 12.4 PPG, 6.6 RPG, 7.2 APG and 1.3 SPG. He is a 3-position player, capable of handling both guard positions as well as the small forward spot. Since he has played under coach Brad Stevens, Turner knows Brad's offensive and defensive schemes. There is currently no open roster slot on the Celtics, so one would have to be created to accommodate Turner. Should a buyout of his contract occur, expect other teams, including the Miami Heat, to show interest in signing him.
