Myles Turner
C, 6’11, 243lbs, 21 years old, 2 years of experience

As a sophomore, Turner scored more, shot better, and kept the mistakes down. He significantly improved his efficiency, blocked a lot of shots, and showed a lot of the potential he was drafted as having, along with having some pretty good short term results. However, Turner gave up some big nights to his opponents, especially ones stronger than him, who pushed him around. Turner needs to get stronger and more physical, as well as develop the shooting range that will be his great counter. He also needs to commit to the defensive glass and want to take contact in the post.

Player Plan: Two years of rookie scale salary remaining. Will be eligible for an extension next summer; with a big 2017/18, he could play his way into max territory, so ensure the money is there to give it to him should it be needed. It might.
