The impending addition of Evan Turner to the Celtics roster is the kind of low-risk move that the team’s president of basketball operations Danny Ainge prides himself on during a rebuilding period. He finds a young talented player with limited market value (see: Jordan Crawford) and takes a chance that said player is able to bounce back and rebuild his worth in a Celtics uniform.
Normally, a promise of ample playing time is a prerequisite for a veteran reclamation project, but that’s not something in place for Turner right now in Boston. The Celtics have a logjam on the roster with 18 players under contract once Turner signs. To make matters worse, the majority of those players play the same position(s) as Turner, who has split time between shooting guard and small forward during his four-year NBA career.
I'm thinking Wallace won't see much playing time. He bitched quite a bit last season about the starters not giving it their all. Plus, everyone knows what Wallace's current worth is, Turner's value is still up in the air.
