Turkoglu Rejects 4 Year, 35 Million Dollar Extension


According to John Denton of Florida Today, Magic Forward Hedo Turkoglu rejected a 4 year, 35 million dollar contract extension. Magic President Bob Vander Weide spoke on the situation. “It’s going to be hard, but it’s not out of the question, and it’s certainly not out of our focus,” Vander Weide said of re-signing Turkoglu. “We didn’t do (the Carter trade) thinking automatically that Turk won’t be here. What you try to do in this league is collect assets, but occasionally you have to move those assets for something that’s a better fit. We still see Turk as an asset, and we’ll try to get something done, but we won’t know for a week or so what kind of deal we’re up against.”

Denton also mentions that Rasheed Wallace, Antonio McDyess, Brandon Bass, Drew Gooden or Chris Wilcox could all be Magic targets.
