How is Evan Turner better than Wes Johnson? Selling the farm for Turner makes no sense.

There has been a lot of discussion about acquiring Evan Turner and I’m a bit puzzled as to all the hype.  IMO Wes has a slight edge over Turner looking at the numbers.

Minutes:  Wes played 3.2 more minutes per game, not enough to make too much difference.

Field Goals:  Wes shot 3.4/8.6 @ 39.7%.  Turner shot 2.9/6.8 @ 42.5%.  Evan takes the edge here, but barely.

3pt:  Wes was far better at the 3, 3.8% better.  Turner only attempted .6 threes a game though.

FT:  meh.  Wes sucked for a 2/3 at getting to this line at 1.2 a game, Evan got there a little better at 1.6 in less time but not really that great.

Boards:  Turner outrebounded Johnons by .9 per game, especially on the offensive end with 1 more per game than Wes.

Assists:  Even

Turnovers: Even

Steals: Even

Blocks: Wes by .5 per

Points per Game:  Wes by 1.8
