We were all a little surprised when Ronny Turiaf turned down his player option with the Heat and become a free agent.

So where does he land? There are worse places to go than Madrid.

European power Real Madrid is in the running, according to a report out of Spain (via Hoopshype):

Turiaf likely is going to wait to see how the NBA market plays out over the next couple of weeks, as teams miss out on current targets his name will come up. These will be veteran minimum deals. But if nothing really materializes he is a member of the French national team who understands the international game and what is expected of him. And Real Madrid has some NBA talent on the roster, including Rudy Fernandez who just signed. Something to watch.
