Eastern Notes: Turner, Humphries, Knicks

Evan Turner will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but he would like to return to the Celtics, Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe writes. “I like Boston,” Turner said. “It’s my favorite place to ever play. My career has been on the up and up since I’ve been here.”

The 27-year-old added that president of basketball operations Danny Ainge is a major reason for his admiration of the team. “What I respect about Danny is he’s all about winning championships,” Turner said.

Here’s more from the Eastern Conference:

  • Kris Humphries, who signed with the Hawks last week, is excited about playing for a team that could do some damage come playoff time, as he tells Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “This is a really good team,” Humphries said. He added that he feels comfortable with the system that coach Mike Budenholzer has in place. “You look at most of their principles,” the big man said. “It’s something I’ve been involved in so it should work out. I’ve played in this kind of system before.”
  • It may be time for Knicks owner James Dolan to decide if team president Phil Jackson has a future with the organization, Mike Lupica of the Daily News writes. Lupica is critical of Jackson’s choices since coming to New York, including his hiring of Derek Fisher.

    Turner is a solid role player but the Celtics will be looking for bigger-name free agents and trade targets this summer. If he wants to come back, he’ll probably have to wait until the smoke clears.

      Boston will definitely swing for the fences. I guess Horford is the realistic big fish.

        Horford makes the most sense if he plays Center. I’ve heard he’d rather play PF and with the spread the court offense the Celtics play it wouldn’t work too well unless they’re confident in a 3 point shooting Centers defense like Olynyk however I don’t like that idea either.
