Why hasn't Evan Turner been officially signed yet? Here are some theories

It was announced in late July that Evan Turner had agreed to terms with the Celtics. The terms haven't announced but it is believed to be a 2 year deal for a portion of the Mid Level Exception (so it will be less than $5M per year).
