According to Jason Quick, Newcomer Evan Turner will share backup point guard duties with CJ McCollum.
Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts stated, “That’s one of the reasons we signed (Turner) to begin with … there was so much pressure on Damian and CJ to be the primary ball handlers. Adding another play maker … this league is about being able to make plays and Evan is very comfortable with the ball in his hands. He’s an excellent passer, he can find bigs, and he can bring the ball up the floor.’’ Turner averaged 10.5 points, 4.9 rebounds, 4.4 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.1 turnovers on 45.6 percent shooting with the Celtics last season, but the guard’s ceiling is limited in standard leagues with his lack of 3-point attempts.
