Coach Terry Stotts has been able to get Turner into lineups that expose the defense by forcing them to place a smaller guard on Turner. That allows him to post up and go to work, either shooting over the guard or forcing teams to double him, where he then finds an open teammate. After a year where he struggled trying to understand the offense and develop chemistry with his new teammates Turner seems to have figure out his role with the Blazers. The departure of Allen Crabbe definitely helps but it remains to be seen whether Turner earns more minutes that will make him fantasy relevant as he is coming from a down year where he failed to produce top-150 value.
