Hedo Turkoglu Wants Out Of Toronto

You probably already saw it coming, but Hedo Turkoglu wants out of Toronto because he likes “Ball” not “Bench”. Apparently, the first benching Turkoglu received in four years on March 28, 2010 didn’t sit so well with him and in a recent interview in his native Turkey. Turkoglu┬áspilled the beans on how he really felt about Toronto.

“When the circumstances turned against me, I lost my enthusiasm for this city,” Turkoglu said. “My lawyers have talked to the front office recently. Honestly, I do not want to go back to Toronto. My lawyers talked to [Bryan] Colangelo and I hope that they will come up with a solution soon.

“During this process, I talked to Jay Triano several times. I promised him that whether he starts me or not, I will do my best on the court. However, if I had a more temperamental personality, I would have left the team. Yet, I did exactly the opposite. I did my best.”

The list of reasons why Turkoglu hasn’t worked out in Toronto is long, but what’s clear is that it just has not. Besides dealing with the mess of signing a now unhappy Turkoglu. Raps GM Bryan Colangelo has got to figure out a way to deal with whatever is floating in the mind of free agent Chris Bosh too.

Yup, it’s gonna be a busy summer in Toronto folks.
