Hedo Turkoglu is about to get paid

What does one do the day after losing in the NBA Finals. Maybe take a trip to get your mind away from the agony of defeat or even go home to spend time with family and friends, that usually helps after experiencing difficult times.

Orlando Magic’s swing man, at least for the moment, begs to differ. Hedo Turkoglu and his agent Lon Babby have already begun the opt out process, Babby probably starting making calls to NBA GM’s in the 4th quarter of Sunday’s game.

During this season and postseason, Turkoglu became the Magic’s most versatile threat offensively. At 6’10 he’s a nightmare for defenders because of his ball handling and shooting abilities.

Turkoglu is coming up on the final year of a 6/yr $36M deal and is scheduled to make $7.3M in the 2009-10 season, but will definitely see a pay raise either from the Magic or another bidder. The Magic have until the end of the month to restructure his contract or they’ll lose their go to guy.
