Not only has six-year veteran guard/forward and former No. 2 overall pick Evan Turner changed teams this offseason (he signed a four-year, $70 million contract with the Portland Trail Blazers), but he has also changed his representation.
He has signed with BDA Sports where he will be represented by Kevin Bradbury, who negotiated his deal with Portland. He was formerly represented by FAME.
The Chicago-native and former Ohio State Buckeye is coming off a 2015-16 season where he averaged 10.5 points per game, 4.4 assists per game and 4.9 rebounds per game with the Boston Celtics. His massive payday comes after essentially reviving his career as a point forward in Boston, where his last free agent deal netted him a little over $6 million for two years.
After an accolade-filled college career at Ohio State, he was drafted second overall by the Philadelphia 76ers in 2010, where he played from 2010-14 before being traded to the Indiana Pacers. He signed a free agent deal with the Celtics in 2014 where he played until the completion of the 2015-16 season.
In signing with BDA Sports, he joins new teammate Festus Ezeli on the agency’s client roster.
