Doug, I bet Turk will play an awesome world champ in Turkey this summer... he's been resting all the season in view of that. Hope it'll be easier to trade him then...
I think he'll be dealt long before that

Hey Doug, thanks for chatting. Turkoglu has a trade kicker in his contract that I'm worried would scare off teams. Do you think he'd be willing to waive it to facilitate a deal?
No, there are trade kickers in a majority of contracts; not really a factor

Love the blog Doug! A few days ago I believe..I read somewhere that Wilbon said something to the extent of doing a Turk for Arenas swap (with other pieces of course). Do you think Arenas would be a good fit for this team?
I don't know, it's intriguing, that's for sure. And I'm sure, for at least a little while, Gilbert would be on his best behaviour. I'd probably make that trade myself.

Doug, does Turk stay or go and do you see any takers for him?
I think he'll go and I know there'll be a teams interested. No one up here may like him a lot but there are people in the industry who think he's still a player. And I'm one of them

Realistically, can a Turk deal be made without the Raps taking on another player with equal or worse baggage?
Probably not, no
