Turiaf agrees with Warriors

I'd hate to see him go. But seeing as he's a RFA the Lakers could match Warrior's offer. I really hope they do.

Turiaf is a restricted free agent. The Lakers have seven days to match the Warriors' offer.

Turiaf's agent, Mark Bartelstein would neither confirm nor deny the offer from the Warriors.

"We've talked to a bunch of teams," Bartelstein said in a phone interview. "There are a lot of teams that are interested in Ronny. We'll just wait to see what happens."

The Lakers' other restricted free agent, guard Sasha Vujacic, still is negotiating with the team.

When Vujacic's agent, Bill Duffy, was contacted Tuesday, he responded in a text message, saying there was "no progress today."

Vujacic was believed to be looking for a contract starting at about $5 million per season.

At 9:01 p.m. Tuesday, NBA teams were officially able to complete signings and trades after the lifting of a league-wide moratorium that began July 1.
