Hedo Turkoglu Wants Out of Toronto
That whole episode (which resulted in a fine and a one-game demotion from the team) has apparently left a bad enough taste in Turkoglu's mouth that the point-forward told Turkish TV hosts recently that he does not want to return to the Raptors. The Basketball Jones translated Hedo's entire appearance on a Turkish talk show, and Hedo spells out exactly what happened that infamous weekend and in the season overall. The takeaway is that Hedo's agent has talked to Raptors GM Bryan Colangelo, and Hedo does not want to be in a Raptor uniform next fall.
The problem is that Hedo became an albatross as soon as signed his deal in Toronto. A bad season and the looming new collective bargaining agreement make it even worse. Hedo makes $9.8 million next season, and a total of almost $44 million over the next four seasons. That's not easy to move.
