In as long as it takes Evan Turner to lace a pair of high-tops, he went from being the man to sixth man.
This is a lot for a 25-year-old, already three-plus years entrenched in a community, to process. Nonetheless, it’s what Turner, former face of the woeful Philadelphia 76ers, experienced after being traded to the Indiana Pacers.
“I still talk to a few players there and the coaches and everything like that,” Turner said. “The whole thing is just an adjustment not being in Philly anymore. I just try to put everything aside and play hard.”
