Despite all the trade rumors and the idea that new head coach Doug Collins is allegedly infatuated with Georgia Tech big man Derrick Favors, we’re making the obvious choice and grabbing Turner at #2. He’s arguably the best all-around basketball player in the draft, has a tremendous basketball IQ and fills an immediate need for the Sixers at 2-guard, something we have been praying would be addressed for two years now.
Barring another big trade and assuming the Sixers also do the smart thing an actually draft Turner, in our opinion the Sixers first five on opening day 2010 will be Jrue Holiday (PG), Turner (SG), Andre Iguodala (SF), Thaddeus Young (PF) and Elton Brand (C).
The New Jersey Nets are now on the clock.
