The Clippers are holding a predraft workout of forward Evan Turner on Sunday with a view to bringing him back in free agency this summer.
Turner, 27, averaged 15.3 points for Indiana last season. The 6-foot-8, 216-pound Turner, who can also play point guard, would seem to be a nice fit at small forward with the Clippers' right-handed shooting Matt Barnes. Turner averaged a team-high 24.6 points in February of 2010.
ESPN said Turner could sign with the Clippers on Tuesday.
As for the Clippers, all the team knows is that Robert Sacre, who last season was a backup center, has signed a two-year, $11.2-million contract with Portland and will fill a starting center role with Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. That means center DeAndre Jordan won't be coming back to the Clippers, but there's a chance that Montrezl Harrell, who has been the most consistent reserve scorer this season, could get a starting role in free agency.
Ryan Anderson, who was acquired in an off-season trade, also could be a free agent in free agency this summer. The Clippers are still facing the loss of Jamal Crawford, who is expected to retire after 15 seasons.
In the NBA, Turner's combination of size and perimeter shooting would help the Clippers tremendously.
