Sixers Accidentally ‘Draft’ Evan Turner

The Daily News’ Phil Jasner has a whole page of Philadelphia Draft notes that you can read in its entirety, but one buried nugget’s good for a laugh: “A page on the Sixers’ website inadvertently showed up briefly the other day with the headline ‘Sixers Draft Evan Turner.’ Mike Preston, the team’s director of public relations, explained that similar pages were prepared for ‘the top candidates’ but that they were not supposed to be posted. Preston said the Turner page showed up ‘for a matter of seconds.’
