2010 NBA Draft, Second Pick: Sixers Take Ohio State's Evan Turner

In the end, the Sixers opted for the sure-thing in Evan Turner over the tantalizing potential that is Georgia Tech big man Derrick Favors. Turner isn't a great fit with the personnel the Sixers already have -- he and Andre Iguodola are a bit redundant -- but there's little doubt he'll develop into a very solid pro in the mold of Brandon Roy.

Don't be surprised if the Sixers shop Iguodola (and his massive contract) over the summer, looking to rebuild around a suddenly strong, young backcourt in Turner and last year's first-rounder Jrue Hollday.
