Magic’s Hedo Turkoglu Told Stay Away
Hedo Turkoglu remains on the Orlando Magic’s roster for now, but his days playing for the team are over.
Although team officials and Turkoglu’s camp have not reached a buyout deal, both sides have agreed that Turkoglu will not join the team when it convenes for the start of training camp Tuesday or at any time after that.
“Our organization has a great deal of respect for Hedo and the contributions he’s made to the team over the years,” Magic General Manager Rob Hennigan told the Orlando Sentinel.
“We’ve made an organizational decision to move in a different direction. During the pendency of our buyout negotiations, we’ve mutually agreed to have Hedo remain with his family while we work toward an agreement.”
