NBA Rumors: Los Angeles Clippers meet with Hedo Turkoglu


Early Monday morning, former Orlando Magic forward Hedo Turkoglu cleared waivers, this after being released by the team on Friday.

Turkoglu certainly wasn’t going to get claimed by a team considering they would have been forced to pay his full salary, so now interested teams will bid on his services – likely for a league minimum deal.

One such team who plans to do so are the Los Angeles Clippers who reportedly sent a representative to meet with the veteran forward today:

A handful of teams have reported interest in Turkoglu, including the Los Angeles Lakers and the Atlanta Hawks – though it’s not known who Turkoglu himself has interest in.

The 34-year-old Turkoglu has not played this season and only played a handful of games during the 2012-13 season, so what’s left in his tank is currently unknown. But for a minimum contract, no doubt some team will be interested to find out.
