  • Hedo" I wont return to Toronto"

    Translated Transcript & Link to Turkish TV Interview - Click Here

    Ok , Guys. End of story.

    Good news for all parts. Especially for me.

    Hedo declared the thing we were expecting from him 2night. He exactly will not return to Toronto. He said his advocate and BC are discussing the situation in order to find a way to end his contract. It will be announced soon i guess.

    There were lots of information in his speech. I bet you will hear its details around web soon. I wont translate all in here. Its better to forget all past things and look for the future for both parts.

    The topic is yours. Here you go. Let classic bashing thing start!

    Does that even work? Can you terminate a contract without a buyout? I NEED TO KNOW NOW! FULL TRANSLATION PLEASE

      Without a link, I'm not sure I buy it, but the only thing that could happen is that Turkoglu accept a buyout. That's the only way to end a contract early without cause. And I don't see that happening, quite frankly. Not after one season with the Raptors.

          Where's this part: "He said his advocate and BC are discussing the situation in order to find a way to end his contract."?

            Its in the video part.

            Above translation is not wholly correct and not covering all. But bolded part is true.

            I think first step is "Request Trade".... and last step is buyout.

            One thing is sure. Hedo will not be in the next year roster.

              If a trade cannot be arranged and as has been noted Hedo will not be on next year's roster in TO then he does not get paid, right? A buyout can be simple....can be done for 1$...and Hedo gets his "freedom" and seek his next location. I have a feeling that was a naive thought on my part.

                  Huge IF on this (somehow I just don't see it happening) but, that said,

                  IF

                  Hedo is sure he could get a full mid-level exception cheque then a buy-out could be as cheap as the difference. Don't see him going much cheaper than that however.

                  Not sure what that would do to the Raptor's Cap and budget #'s though.

                  (For 2009-10 the mid-level $5.85 million - if that is roughly consistent for 2010-11 then that means the difference I'm referencing - for the 2010-11 year - would be ~ $4 million. 4 years of that is a lot of moola for MLSE to kiss good-bye and NOT ask BC to fall on his sword.)

                    Shocker. I'll wait for an accurate english translation before trying to make sense of it Interesting though. He seems to share his opinion on whether Bosh is staying or going but Google Translate just made me confused in english, instead of turkish.

                      Well, if he didn't sign such a big-ass contract and then play so poorly, he probably would be a hell of a lot easier to trade. Seriously, though, this shouldn't come as a big surprise. He's never struck me as a guy who's going to take full responsibility for something, but simply find the easy way out. Asking for a trade is an easy way out.

                      My problem is that by publicly demanding a trade he's suddenly become that much harder to trade. It's not as if he asked for a trade and it wasn't happening. The offseason hasn't even started so it's not as if there's been no movement. And Turkoglu has been around the NBA long enough that he should know better.

                      My worry is what the Raptors will have to take back in order to trade him away.

                        I hope someone is working on an english transcript of the 9 minute video.

                        Who wouldn't love to spend a friday night doing that?



                        edit: Oh wait there's also a second part that's 11 minutes long.

                          That was my reaction too. But I kind of reassured myself that he would be impossible to trade for anyway.


                          (wait, is that really reassuring?)

                              To continue the buy-out thought a little bit, I could see where it might be as low as $9 to 10 million.

                              i.e.

                              Remaining contract of 4 years ($44 million)

                              less

                              Anticipated contract of full MLE for 5 years (~ $34 million)

                              (with Turks assuming the risk of NOT getting a full MLE)

                              How that $10 million would be split up over the next 4 years for the Raps is not something I know... however... not THAT big a hit in the grand scheme of things imo.
