🙌 t.co/qHkCAyZFdT | @HMProperties pic.twitter.com/YpOxfsT9Xh news and information about Boston`s 17-time champion team. On paper, this is a bit surprising. Boston lost to Miami in the Eastern Conference Finals largely due to Bam Adebayo`s two-way dominance. Turner, who took fifth place in the Defensive Player of the Year election, might have held him back. Brad Stevens has always been keen to shoot in his centres. Turner took 250 3 points last season, more than Al Horford ever in Boston, and he played for Nate McMillan, whose Pacers tried the fewest 3 points in basketball. The fit seemed clean. Turner, six years younger than Hayward, would replace Hayward, support Boston`s rim protection and free up the ground for his many ball handlers. But Ainge felt he could do better, so he traded Hayward for a player who was to be named later.
