Are we lucky we didn't get Evan Turner?


I have NOT watched Evan Turner this season. But I look at his stats and cringe. He was supposed to be a "sure thing". [I thought so too, though I liked Johnson almost as much before the draft.] 

His PER places him 22nd among rookies. 

For comparison's sake:

#1 Wall - 18.76

#2 Griffin - 16.88

#5 Aminu - 15.45

#6 Favors - 15.19

#8 Splitter - 12.96

#9 Cousins - 12.95

#15 Paul George - 10.24

# 16 Wes Johnson - 9.96

#20 Xavier Henry - 9.34

#21 Pekovic - 8.74

#22 - Evan Turner - 8.61

 

Have any of the Turner fans seen him play and can they explain? [I was a fan of Turner's also, but can't comment since I haven't seen him play.] 

Must admit I'm disappointed with Johnson's & Pekovic stats also.  But Johnson seems to be learning to be a defensive stopper and I have seen improvement in Wes's game watching him play. 

Just not sure what Turner is doing. 

Thoughts?
