Evan Turner Said 'No' To The Wizards

By now, you should be aware that the Wizards are planning on taking John Wall with the first overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft.

While Wall is generally regarded as the most talented player in the draft, some believed that Evan Turner would have been a better fit in Washington.

Well, as it turns out, Turner had no desire to find out. Per Michael Lee:

Was told today that Wiz tried to set up workout with Evan Turner - some within org really like him - but were denied on several occasions.

That statement can be a bit confusing - did Turner actually turn down a workout with the Wizards?

Lee clarified in a response to a tweet asking that very question:

Yes. Told David Falk wasn't receptive to Wiz advances. Falk told me he & Turner are focused on PHI

So, let me get this straight. Either Turner was so sure that the Wizards were going to pick John Wall first overall that he didn't want to waste his and our time, or he decided to pull a John Elway, refusing to join a team determined to draft him with the No. 1 pick.

I'm probably reading too much into this, but regardless, I'm insulted. We are not the Baltimore Colts!
