When Philadelphia 76ers new general manager Sam Hinkie started his wheeling and dealing during the NBA Draft, many assumed it would be Evan Turner who got his walking papers. Instead, Hinkie traded the 76ers only All-Star in Jrue Holiday for a first-round pick that turned into Nerlens Noel.

Turner did have his best season as a pro last year after averaging 13.3 points per game.
