2014 FIBA U18 Americas Championship: US Scouting Reports
June 25, 2014
Mike Schmitz

Strengths
-Excellent size, frame and length for a center.
-Great instincts as a shot blocker. Rotates well. Alters shots. Very good timing.
-Good offensive rebounder.
-Very good shooting touch. Capable out to 3-point range. Comfortable in mid-range spots.
-Upside offensively. Can get to a turnaround jumper comfortably. Fundamentally sound rip-through from 17 feet. Pretty good touch on right handed jump hook.
-High IQ. Good passer. Knows where to be on the defensive end.
-Good hands.
-Plays with great effort. Works hard on the glass.

Weaknesses
-Lacks mobility. Struggles getting up and down with fluidity. Runs awkwardly.
-Huge feet slow him down. Has issues hedging and recovering.
-Average body.
-Lacks explosiveness. Not an above the rim guy.
-Not comfortable turning over his right shoulder.
-Lacks go-to moves on the block. Doesn't get deep position.
-Foul prone.

Outlook Turner has an intriguing blend of shooting ability, basketball IQ, shot blocking instincts and rebounding ability for a near-7-footer. The Texas-bound big man does some nice things on the floor that should translate well to the next level. Turner's potential is a bit limited by his lack of mobility and explosiveness, however. He's not exactly great in one area and although he certainly has some NBA-level skills and tools, he struggles to get off the ground quickly, keep quicker bigs in front and hedge and recover in the pick and roll. Turner figures to face questions about his long-term durability due to his abnormally large feet and awkward running style. Turner certainly has the tools to contribute at Texas and eventually parlay that into a potential lottery selection in the 2015 draft. But because of Turner's lack of athleticism along with questions about his long-term durability, he doesn't quite have the star potential people may have envisioned in the past.

High School Class of 2014 Scouting Reports, Part Two- the Big Men
September 4, 2013
Jonathan Givony

Recruiting Rankings: 247: #7, ESPN: #10, Scout: #5, Rivals: #6

Strengths:
-Tremendous physical attributes. Great frame, long arms, soft hands
-Extremely athletic. Quick off his feet. Very nimble.
-Great instincts as a shot-blocker. Terrific timing
-Very good touch around the basket
-Very nice turnaround jumper
-Capable of stepping outside and shooting from the perimeter
-Can put the ball on the floor a bit
-Very intelligent player. Great passer for his position
-Extremely unselfish. Almost to a fault at times
-Competes on the glass
-Solid toughness
-Extremely intelligent off the court
-Huge upside to continue to develop

Weaknesses:
-Very limited offensively
-Not strong enough to establish position inside the paint
-Does not possess great footwork or post moves
-Not really comfortable carrying a heavy scoring load. Often does not look like he really wants the ball
-Shots the ball with a side-spin, which hurts his accuracy
-Not fluid or graceful yet with movements. Runs the floor and hedges screens somewhat awkwardly

Outlook: Physically gifted big man still in a very early stage of his development. Grew considerably in a short amount of time, and does not look fully comfortable in his own skin just yet. Has the potential to be a special defensive player. Has terrific instincts for blocking shots. Frame is underdeveloped but will fill out in impressive fashion. Appears to have terrific intangibles off the court, which leaves a lot of room for optimism regarding his future development.
