The all-in-one other teams pursuing Turkoglu thread

Quote:
The Magic offered forward Hedo Turkoglu a four-year, $35 million extension shortly after the NBA Finals.

Turkoglu rejected the offer and ultimately opted out of the final year in his contract to become an unrestricted free agent.

Orlando acquired Vince Carter, who still has $33.6 million on his contract, on Thursday, which many believe spells the end for Turkoglu.

"It's going to be hard, but it's not out of the question, and it's certainly not out of our focus," president Bob Vander Weide said of re-signing Turkoglu. "We didn't do (the Carter trade) thinking automatically that Turk won't be here. What you try to do in this league is collect assets, but occasionally you have to move those assets for something that's a better fit. We still see Turk as an asset, and we'll try to get something done, but we won't know for a week or so what kind of deal we're up against."

Guess this qualifies that $10 million per is what it's going to take.

$9 mil a year to play for a contender and stay in Florida
he isn't worth more so I think that was a sweet deal
he's to busy chasing a 5/50 contract, very soon he's going to realize good teams can't give him big $$$
maybe he's happy playing for a team like Memphis as long as he gets paid

I really hope the Raptors forget this guy. $10M/yr is a figure some team is going to regret. I hope the Raptors focus on Marion.

tough move by Hedo...
turning down 9 million a season on a contender. i dont get this. especially since the going rate for him was about 10 million.
so, he's basically turning down 9 million (guaranteed) on one of the best teams in the conference, for the chance of making an extra 1 million on what will probably be a non-contending team?

maybe he wasnt happy there, or doesnt like the fact that VC will be stealing some of his shots... strange.
this has got to be heartbreaking for the Magic, if Hedo would have re-signed, they would have been odds on favorites to come out eastern conference champs next season.

yes! finally.. a prime example of a pro who's only in it for the money..

i hope we don't get this guy. let some other team pay his overratedness. sorry Turkeyglue, but you ain't Kobe or Lebron to be worth 80mil.

How do you know he's only in it for the money?

Maybe he has opted out and is willing to take less just to get out of Orlando?

im guessing the kicker was the number of years.
hedo probably wanted at least 5, and the magic called his bluff by offered only 4.
5 years @ 45-50 million, is so much more attractive to a player than 4 years @ 35M.

Um, this is a pro league. They're all in it for the money to some extent.

That being said, he should have taken the offer, he won't find a better deal from another contender.

I think Turkoglu is worth ten mil on the right team. He's a matchup nightmare. Any 6'10 player who can run a pick and roll the way he does is worth 10mil. And he's clutch. Without him that team struggles down the stretch in games and loses the close ones.

Took the words outta my mouth and look at how much they're paying Rashard Lewis. Turkoglu's worth more to the team than Rashard.
