Ford: Evan Turner's Official Athletic Testing Results

Chad Ford tweets ...

Wall's numbers were great: 39 inch vert, 10.84 lane agility, 3.14 3/4 sprint. Turner? 34.5 inch vert, 11.06 lane agility, 3.27 3/4 sprint

Comparing his numbers to past players after the jump ...

Here are some comparable max verticals for Turner's 34.5:

Wade - 35 inches

Iguodala - 34.5 inches

Jrue - 34 inches

Tyreke - 34 inches

Note: Turner should be fine with a 34-inch max vertical. 

-------------------------

Comparable lane agility to Turner's 11.06:

OJ Mayo - 11.04

Westbrook - 10.98

Redick - 10.94

Note: I'm not as excited about Turner's lane agility as I am his vertical, but he did fair better than both Roy (11.13) and Iguodala (11.17). 

-------------------------

Comparable sprint times to Turner's 3.27:

Caron Butler - 3.33

JJ Redick - 3.29

Brandon Roy - 3.27

Luke Jackson - 3.24

Note: Impressive isn't the word you would use to describe Turner's sprint time, but it's nothing to be too upset about.

-------------------------

As expected, Turner wasn't the greatest athlete at the combine, but his results were right in line with the guy he's being compared to most - Brandon Roy. If he can continue to validate the Roy-comparison, he'll be just fine.

Thoughts? I'll have the full results posted as soon as Chad Ford posts them.
