In a surprising move the Boston Celtics signed free agent F Evan Turner yesterday after Turner endured a disappointing half season stint with the Indiana Pacers.  The move left some insiders scratching their heads but recently Turner's agent David Faulk shed some light on why such a move was made.  

“There’s tremendous upside in the opportunity for both sides,” said Falk. “I think the Celtics got an old-school Celtic-type player who’s very, very talented, has a very high basketball IQ and is highly motivated to prove to people that he’s not the player who ended the year in Indiana.....I think he was probably the most undervalued free agent on the market. Evan was in a dramatically different situation the day before the deadline than he was when he finished the year. He didn’t get a lot of playing time in Indiana unfortunately.  But that’s history. There’s nothing we can do to change that. This is a situation where he can come and grow as a player. I think Brad (Stevens) realizes he’s a multi-dimensional player.”
