The Magic have wanted to avoid paying the punitive luxury tax, but team president Bob Vander Weide said recently that the club could change that stance to accommodate Turkoglu.

The only way we can sign him is if Marion walks without a S&T. Because even if we S&T Marion for let's say, a SG + Filler... we wouldn't have the 10Mil or so it would take to sign Turkoglu.

Marion>> Turkoglu

Chris Sheridan of ESPN was just on the Fan 590 (Game Plan) and said Hedo would fit nicely in Toronto, but he thinks they'll have to clear more cap space and would have to offer 12-13Mil (He said 5yrs/60Mil) to be able to outbid Orlando.


Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuck that garbage!

Seriously. Good luck with that Hedo ( if that's really what he's asking for)

IMO if that's what he can get (which is debateable) it will raise Marion's price? And if so, who has that kind of cheddar?

he's very agile for a player of his size. but i think i'll go with Marion simply because we need to address our defense issues. and like some of you stated, i don't know how he'll fit here.

Ariza might ask for around that 5 mil area for like 2 to 3 years (?)

I laugh at the articles saying Ariza is worth 10 mil a year. You put any top 15 SF on that team and he looks better than Ariza. Arizas a damn good, soon to be great role player, but near all star? I think not.

10Mil per for Ariza? Yet some can`t see Marion getting that? If Ariza gets 10Mil so should Marion, no?

Neither should get 10....and 10 should be the max for Turkey. I wouldn't want to pay him more than 9 but Orlando will offer him at least that.

Also...I'm cheap.

These past few weeks from watching Hedo, I have come to the conclusion that Bargs ceiling might be Hedo-ball. *sigh*

but that's just it. no one really plays for the sport anymore. mostly play for their annual salaries. but contrary to your humble statement, i think it's fair for certain guys like Kobe (he did went 81 on us if remember) to have a 10mil/yr. Hedo/Marion? i don't think it's fair for the organization that they do..
