Magic Magic won't do sign-and-trade with the Raptors for Turkoglu

Quote:
Magic general manager Otis Smith says that he will not take part in a sign-and-trade with the Raptors for forward Hedo Turkoglu.

Turkoglu agreed to sign with the Raptors after jilting the Trail Blazers.

Toronto can sign Turkoglu beginning on Wednesday, but may wait as they look to trade players like Shawn Marion, Anthony Parker and Carlos Delfino instead of renouncing their rights.

Smith told the Orlando Sentinel late Friday that the team would not be involved in a sign-and-trade in order to receive compensation for Turkoglu.

They rid of Hedo the player that carried them to the finals and others Lee, Alston, Gortat and Battie for Vince Carter. All of them for the aging VC with a fat contract. Karma will haunt them and pay.

YES!!.
Thank you,words of wisdom.
Lee was great in the playoffs for them, plus he's a rook, he's gonna develop and be even greater and they will regret it.

no he's not plus, we have little bench.

from doug smith's Raptors blog:You know how there’s a moratorium on signings until Wednesday?

Well, there’s now a moratorium here on questions about the mid-level exception.

Here is the definitive statement I got from a very highly placed league source who knows what he is talking about.

The only – ONLY – way Toronto could have possibly retained its mid-level exception was if Orlando wanted to do a sign-and-trade deal for Shawn Marion.

That, as we read earlier today, is not going to happen.

So, ipso facto (or something like that), Toronto can’t get it and I’m done considering it.

It's not everyday you can get a guy who's been in the top 25 in scoring the lasst 8 years (including last). He also averages about 5 assists and 5 boards a game. He's absolutely clutch just like turk.

The magic weren't going to beat the lakers (now new and improved) with the same team last year that got beat 4-1. Now with the Celtics back and improved, the cavs back and improved and also the lakers and spurs also improving their roster... the Magic needed something better than 2 backup bigs, a point gaurd with an attitude and Courtney Lee.

Let's see how the Nets do next year without VC lol.

Big deal...our bench last season was one of the worst in the league. And imo what ever BC does this summer with the bench will likely be an improvement.
