IND Power Forward/Center: 6’11, 243 lbs; 3rd year, Texas

 NBA Role: scoring, hybrid 4/5 • Future Top DOG

Myles Turner: A Man Amongst Boys • A crazy thing to say about someone who can barely buy a drink; Indiana’s future franchise center is skilled, plays w/ passion & understands what he needs to bring (every night) for the Pacers to come out on top; unquestioned All-Star upside – likened to a young LaMarcus Aldridge (SAS), Turner has a similar offensive game, feat. quick footwork, pick & pop shots, & his patented Turner-around; Myles still has a ways to go to reach his immense offensive potential but his touch from the perimeter is promising; average rebounder, needs to work on establishing position early when fighting down low; alters the framework of games by staying active 24/7 – infectious energy has a trickle down effect; not a true three-point shooter yet, will attempt more heading into 2017-18 (trail triples, pick & slips); Indiana’s undisputed X-Factor, when will Turner break into Top DOG territory?
