Turkoglu Hopes to Return to Magic Next Season
Small forward Hedo Turkoglu said he wants to remain with the Magic next season even though the club already has effectively removed him from their future plans.
“I would like to keep playing here,” Turkoglu said after the Magic’s shootaround on Wednesday. “I was here more years than anywhere in my career.”
Turkoglu, of course, would love to stay in Orlando and play next season for financial reasons. If he plays, the Magic would owe him the entire $12 million in the final year of his contract. Because his contract is not guaranteed, the Magic can pay just $6 million and let him go.
