Coach Magee works with Sixers star Evan Turner: Phila Daily News, Comcast SportsNet

Basketball coach Herb Magee is working with the 76ers’ Evan Turner to improve his shooting skills, the Philadelphia Daily News and Comcast SportsNet reported July 20.  Turner, the no. 2 draft pick who is coming off his rookie season, wants to improve his shooting percentage, especially in the three-point range.  “He is a good shooter, actually a very good shooter,” Magee told CSN.  “His problem is when he steps back to three his guide hand is in the way, so we have been working on it from the vantage point of shooting the 15-, 16-footer the same way we shoot the 22.9 shot.”
