I hope this is a joke or at least we're getting first rounders. Bazemore is twice as good as Turner.

If there is a positive, Turner is a better passer and dribbler than Bazemore. But not quite the shooter or defender. Not quite the leader either or the locker room guy Kent is. This is an elite move for Kent. Total situation upgrade. It's clear, TS and team want playmakers and valuable that A LOT.

I disagree, Turner can get solid mins. He's not Crabbe.

But do we want/need him getting minutes over our young guys?

Any chance this might have something to do with opening up some minutes for our rookies? It'll be easier to stick Turner at the end of the bench (if needed) than a true pro like Bazemore. His contract is awful but he was a great team guy. Best of luck, Baze!

Good point!

Kent Bazemore to Portland for Evan Turner. 

Looks like a move to get Baze some playing time.

Yeah, I don't think Solomn Hill, Crabbe or Tuner are long for this team.  Bring back Vince, Dedmon, and Anderson.

This is a downgrade. It's clear Atlanta wanted to trade into a better situation it seems for his agency.

Dumb trade in isolation because Baze had actual trade value to a contender this year while Turner has none.  What contender wants a wing who shoots 21% from 3pt range?  I don't know Turner from Adam on a personal level but he may be one of my least favorite players in the entire NBA.  His inability to shoot a jumper crushes the spacing on the floor for other players and he isn't a good enough defender to make up for it.  

There has to be either another move or picks coming here.

This seems like a favor to Bazemore trade. Loyal, but wasn't going to get many mins with Bembry ahead of him, it seems like the Dorsey trade to me.

Yup that’s exactly what I was thinking when I saw the trade! If there’s any positive it’s that part for us
