Evan Turner is scheduled to be Boston's lone unrestricted free agent this summer. How does he feel about the process? "I'm kind of wondering how it's going to play out, but other than that, it should be cool," said Turner. "It's going to be way better than two years ago, right? ... Obviously money is cool, but I don't want to sit there getting our brains beat in, you know what I'm saying? I want to go somewhere ideally where the staff and their front office is big on winning. And that's pretty much it. Hopefully it's back here."

It was the funnest season I've definitely been in, just figuring out everything and putting everything together, not knowing how far or how good of a team you are. And we made it pretty dang far. Just the atmosphere, top-notch organization, guys fun to be around, coaching staff, it was just fun for me. I had a great year here."
