That's a good start! Turner told John Finger of CSN Philly that he isn't upset that he doesn't have a contract extension but talks like someone who can see the writing on the wall that he might not be in the Sixers long-term plans.
The second-overall pick in 2010 has not quite reached expectations during his first three seasons in Philadelphia. Don't get me wrong, he has been decent but a top-two pick brings along high expectations. Last season he averaged a career best 13.3 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 4.3 assists per game which makes him a solid player but certainly not an All-Star to build a team around.
Turner, who turns 25 at the end of the month, is looking to prove doubters wrong that have listed him as an under-performing No. 2 overall pick. It is still not out of the question for the 76ers to move Turner to a team who could use a solid role player.
Or he could end staying in Philadelphia for the season and walk away at the end of the year for nothing... which would cause everyone else to drop the f-bomb too.
