Hedo Makes a Lot of Sense for Trail Blazers
If you are compiling a list of NBA players who made themselves the most money during this season's NBA Playoffs you have to put Orlando Magic forward Hedo Turkoglu at the top of the list. Turkoglu is now poised to take advantage of his playoff showing and cash in on a new deal. His agent Lon Babby says the forward will opt out of his contract with the Magic and will become a free agent. Turkoglu was set to make $7.3M next season from the Magic but will likely earn $10M or more per season by becoming a free agent. My guess is it will take a 5 year deal to sign Hedo. So if you're an NBA GM you should plan on investing $50M in Turkoglu. Sacramento Detroit and Portland are expected to take a close look at Hedo. He's a guy that has a versatile game and he's shown that he can make big shots when he needs to. He can get his own shot and presents matchup problems for the defense. Portland has the cap space to go after him and I think he would be a great fit with this Trail Blazers team. What do you think? Post a commment below if you want to weigh in.
