So I took some time to really dive into what the hell the Turner haters are thinking. Honestly I can't figure it out.

Last season, Baze played 2 more minutes per game, yet

Turner beats Baze 

FG% 46% vs 40%

RBG - 4.5 vs 3.9

APG - 3.9 vs 2.3

TO/G- 1.6 vs 1.8

 

Baze beats Turner

3PT% 32% vs 21.2% (Kent took 4.5 attempts per game, Turner .7)

Steals 1.3 vs .5

Blocks .6 vs .2

 

I'm really trying to understand this.  Turner shot 6% better from the floor, Shy'd away from taking 3's and focus'd on creating for others. He posted more rebounds and assists in 10% less minutes per game.  Yes Baze shot better from 3 but he still shot poorly from 3 and took 4.5 shots per game.  Why exactly do we not want this guy at $640k less?  Anyone with a sound argument to why Baze is better?

I think Turner's 6 PPG would probably be a major factor.  6 PPG in 22 MPG suggests we are always going to be playing 4 vs. 5 on offense, when he is on the court.

Twice as many points as J. Adams averaged

Last month of the season Adams average 18 minutes per game.  16 minutes per game in March

It could suggest that he focused on getting his other teammates involved.  Scoring stats by themselves does not tell the full story of a players contribution to the team.

Maybe we should have pursued Lonzo Ball.

Adams isn’t a credible nba player and won’t block us from doing anything.  Turner is a fatally flawed nba player but he earns so much it is likely to bar us from acquiring a better option.

As far as citizens for the Hawks only Doc and Deke were above Baze imo.

Interesting!

 

I do wonder who were the other teams and if TS explored those options to see if we could get something more for Baze.

Happy for Baze!

Better than the player we got back.  I get why he wanted out though - the future is Cam / Huerter / Hunter.

Turner will be fine.  I think we will come to appreciate him.  It's a new system.

He has not been good in any system and has been in the NBA for 9 years.  The best we can hope for is a mixed bag with good defense and solid playmaking.
