That link is weird but it was Mark Wiedmer from the times free press that wrote the article
Still not seeing where it was said he was better than Punter?

I'm 100% positive Barnes indicated that if Turner were eligible he would started at PG which would have allowed Punter to play off the ball. That information came from Rob Lewis

My recollection as well, some seeem to think Barnes said Turner was the best player overall (over Punter & Moore) and I definitely do not recall that.

Yes this is what Barnes was implying. Turner would have been the PG last year with Punter at SG.

Thanks For making my point about EXACTLY what started this talk. Turner wouldn't have been the best player. Unreal why we are still talking about it
Irony is strong up in here

JJ could be one of the keys for 2017-18. We need another perimeter shooter to allow Williams/Fulkerson/Schofield/Alexander and the freshmen to work in the paint.

He reminds me of Mostella. I hope his off the court business is nothing like Mostella's.

I hope he's not as streaky as Mostella.

JJ with a year of practice in the Barnes system will play in front of Pons. if he can play to his potential he could be an upgrade to Hubbs.
Hoping he's taken S&C training seriously.

If he can defend, he might take Bowden's spot in the starting lineup. Having Bowden bring some fire power off of the bench isn't a bad thing. Fulkerson too. Fulkerson could ignite the energy on the court and Bowden could rowdy up the crowd by knocking down 3s.

He will at the very least be a threat from 3 which was a negative with Hubbs, teams could sag off 8', beg him to shoot and he wouldn't...I don't think JJ will do that.

No shot on Bowden. He's going to be a huge piece going forward.

I hope so. He needs to be able to do more on offense though. He can make 3-pointers when he's able to square up. He needs to be able to consistently finish when he puts the ball on the floor. He missed a lot of bunnies.
