Johnson better than Turner?


This is straight from SI:

Is Evan Turner going to be a good player? No question. Was he the consensus No. 2 pick? Absolutely. Is he going to be better than Wesley Johnson in three years? Ehhhhh. Turner was a no-brainer: He's polished, mature and a natural two-guard who, along with Jrue Holiday, gives Philly a dynamic backcourt that will be entrenched on Broad St. for the next decade. But Johnson was the high-riser in the 2010 draft, with every team -- including the Sixers -- gushing over his workouts. Philadelphia was after another late first-, early second-round pick most of the night but struck out, a result it may regret if Daniel Orton or Hassan Whiteside turn out to be players.

I don't know if he's better than Turner but I do believe that Johnson is on the same level as Granger and Gay.  I would have traded the 4th pick for either of those guys who by the way are about the same age.  You have the Lebron's and Melo's then you step down to Granger and Gay, but now you can add Johnson to that list.  This was a phenomanal pickup.

Webster was the BPA hands down in that trade, he has proven he can play in the NBA and play defense.  Babbit can shoot but so can Adam Morrison.  I think you keep Jefferson team him with Darko and Love will be the 6th man of the year. 

If I was Kahn I'd go out and sign Rudy Gay and let him play the 2.  I think the triangle is the perfect offense for him to play the 2 spot with Johnson at the 3.  What do you guys think about this?
