Utah's Derrick Favors (44 starts) is the only top pick in that class with fewer career starts than Turner's 116.
Turner, who plays forward, averaged a career-best 13.3 points this season and was the only Sixer to start all 82 games.
"I'm just tapping the surface," said Turner, who averaged 7.2 points as a rookie and 9.4 last season. "The difference between 14 points and 18 points are a couple of foul calls. So people might agree that I get fouled a lot. So if I get to 18 points, that's all-star numbers."
But for every solid performance, the 6-foot-7, 220-pounder has had two or three horrible nights. His low-point came in a 97-86 victory against Washington on April 12. Turner was held scoreless on 0-for-11 shooting. That marked the second time this season when he failed to make a field goal. He scored a point during a 0-for-4 shooting performance in a 99-89 victory over Memphis on Dec. 26.
Turner's biggest problem has been an inability to string together consecutive productive performances while playing on back-to-back nights. That's something the Chicago native said he was told he must improve upon during Thursday's season-ending meeting with former coach Doug Collins, general manager Tony DiLeo, and majority own Josh Harris.
The Sixers could offer Turner a contract extension this summer. His current rookie contract runs through the end of next season.
"I'm not worrying about [an extension]," Turner said. "I'm just worrying about getting better. . . . I want to be the best player that I can be and reap all the benefits the NBA has to offer."
