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.
