Turkoglu rumour mill still churning
Two things were for certain the moment Hedo Turkoglu’s desire to leave
the Raptors became public last month.
There would be rumours all around and the Raptors would not comment on
any of them.
Reports this week that Turkoglu would welcome a trade to the Sacramento
Kings were not unexpected, nor was the no comment coming from Raptors
general manager Bryan Colangelo, who has consistently avoided discussing
the delicate issue.
However, league sources here expect Colangelo to place calls to a couple of dozen NBA teams looking for a possible trade involving the 30-year-old Turkoglu, who still has four years and more than $40 million to go on a contract he signed with Toronto last summer.
But the sources also indicate there has been nothing discussed between the Kings, where Turkoglu started his NBA career, and Toronto.
