Evan Turner Working With Shooting Coach

by September 10, 2011

Evan Turner is working hard this summer to turn things around after a lackluster rookie season. Working with the winningest coach in NCAA history to improve his jumper is a start. From the Philadelphia Inquirer:  “One thing is clear: Evan Turner would like the basketball. The 76ers sophomore guard has spent this summer splitting time among three places, but has also spent a good deal of his summer working with Hall of Famer and Philadelphia University coach Herb Magee, who has been tweaking Turner’s shot. ‘I knew I had a hitch in my shot,’ said Turner, who was in Chicago. ‘I just wanted to get it together. I didn’t want to shoot any balls short. I wanted to understand the basic principle of jump-shooting, all of that, what to look for. Coach Magee has been helping me out a lot.'”
