  6. Reports: Danny Granger will sign with Clippers when he clears waivers Friday

    Feb 28, 2014, 1:27 AM EDT

    Danny Granger

    Doc Rivers has been looking for some help at the three — Jared Dudley has not panned out as hoped and Matt Barnes is solid as a reserve but not the guy who starts on a contender. Rivers even tried Hedo Turkoglu in that role. Now Danny Granger is going to get a chance. Granger,…

    Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan have played 1,638 minutes together this season — 61.7 percent of the Clippers’ total minutes this season.

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    Hedo Turkoglu wasn’t a part of the futre in Orlando, and as a result, the Magic let him know that before the season began and allowed him to remain away from the team until he was either dealt or waived. When no one was willing to offer anything in trade for Turkoglu, the Magic decided…

  9. Report: Clippers considering adding Hedo Turkoglu, Sasha Vujacic

    Jan 7, 2014, 12:10 PM EDT

    Sasha Vujacic

    For one night Monday, the Clippers’ offense looked just fine without Chris Paul. Unfortunately, the Clippers don’t get to play a disinterested and dispirited Orlando Magic team every night. With CP3 out, the Clippers need more guys who can create shots. Which is why the Clippers are thinking of making a roster change and bringing…

    Jan 3, 2014, 6:09 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Dallas Mavericks

    UPDATE 6:09 pm: And it’s official, the Orlando Magic have waived Hedo Turkoglu. No team is going to claim him off waivers and pick up the $6 million he is owed. It is possible he gets a minimum deal, more likely he gets a 10 day contract soon. 4:04 pm: So much for trying to…

    Jan 2, 2014, 12:54 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    There have been a lot of trade rumors around Andrew Bynum — if a team trades for him then waives him by Jan. 7 (or if the Cavaliers waive him) they save $6 million on the salary cap. Marc Stein at ESPN reminds us Bynum is not the only guy in this situation — Orlando…

    Orlando Magic Hedo Turkoglu complains after he picked up second foul against New York Knicks in NBA basketball game in New York

    Hedo Turkoglu probably isn’t on anyone’s radar outside of Orlando, mainly because he hasn’t played a game for the Magic or been around the team in any capacity at all since the season began. Turkoglu isn’t a part of the team’s future plans, so they essentially told him to get lost — while being paid,…

  13. Jameer Nelson understands he’s on the trade block

    Oct 2, 2013, 11:42 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Indiana Pacers - Game Five

    Jameer Nelson is not in the future plans of the Orlando Magic, which is why he’s on everybody’s trade watch lists for this season. The Magic are rebuilding with youth, he is a 31-year-old point guard making a team-high $8.6 million this season but can be bought out for $2 million next season. (Yes, technically…

    Orlando Magic Hedo Turkoglu complains after he picked up second foul against New York Knicks in NBA basketball game in New York

    Hedo Turkoglu could make $12 million to sit on his couch this season. The Orlando Magic can waive him and only have to pay $6 million, but they have until Jan. 10 to make that call. In the mean time they  want to keep him around as a potential trade chip, so he is still…

    To hear NBA Commissioner David Stern or commissioner in waiting Adam Silver tell it, the NBA has been working on setting up Human Growth Hormone (HGH) testing and is close, it’s just waiting for the players union to agree. There was even a report last March saying it could be in place for this coming…

    Sep 2, 2013, 11:59 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    Hedo Turkoglu will not be a member of the Orlando Magic next season. Bet on it. He likely isn’t in the NBA. He has an offer waiting back in Turkey that will be better than any offer he is getting in this country, smart money says that is where he ends up. But before we…

  18. Report: Turkoglu has $3.5 million offer to play in Turkey

    Aug 27, 2013, 10:26 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    As of right now, Hedo Turkoglu is a member of the Orlando Magic, he is under contract to them. The question is will he be one when training camp starts. He’s not going to play much in Orlando — they are a rebuilding team playing their young guys and the 13-year NBA veteran is not…

    We already knew the Magic and Hedo Turkoglu were negotiating a buyout, but Al Harrington could be headed out of Orlando, too. Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: Harrington and Turkoglu don’t expect the Magic to keep them. Like Turkoglu, Harrington also has a partially guaranteed salary for 2013-14 ($7,148,600, half guaranteed). Unlike Turkoglu, whose…

  20. Magic, Hedo Turkoglu discussing buyout

    Jul 9, 2013, 6:54 PM EDT

    Hedo Turkoglu

    In some ways, Hedo Turkoglu became the face of the Orlando Magic during the 2009 NBA Finals. Dwight Howard was unquestionably Orlando’s top player, but with point guard Jameer Nelson battling injury, Turkoglu became the Magic’s primary ball-handler and leading scorer. All eyes were on him. After the series, a 4-1 loss to the Lakers,…
