November 13 Philadelphia Inquirer:
“The 76ers‘ backcourt of the future is now.
Coach Doug Collins appears to have settled on second-year point guard Jrue Holiday and rookie shooting guard Evan Turner as starters.
It took an injury to swingman Andre Iguodala, formerly the team’s shooting guard, to open space in the starting lineup for Turner. But even with Iguodala healthy Friday night against the Dallas Mavericks, Collins kept intact his young backcourt of Holiday and Turner.
Iguodala returned Friday to the starting lineup, but he was moved to small forward.
Collins noted that Holiday and Turner “are playing very well together.”
“And early in the year, in preseason, they weren’t,” he said. “And I think they’ve really found a nice fit together, and that’s exciting for us because a big part of our future hinges on those two guys.””
