Turkish delight will play for us next season...if and only when he tests the market. Otis said as much. We will know what he's offered on the free market. I'm torn by wanting him to hit the road and wanting him to stay...he's got something, an intangible that has helped us win even though he's not an all star player. It will be hard to run the maze and make it back to even the EC championship without improvement from everyone. Maybe Hedo is meant for this team...we'll see.

Angel,

I don't think any player in the NBA these days can re-construct their contract. I think the CBA won't allow it. Even if he wants to do it, it's just simply can't.

They should get a true PF. Let Turk go, Battie (useless), Alston (Arroyo V.2) and make sure to re-sign Gortat instead. Howard is foul prone and Gortat is a capable replacement for few minutes or a game.

It was long and so exciting play off for us..
I would like to hear more thanksful to hedo about that and give him what he deserves and respect him about that.he played against ıguodala,pierce,lebro n and sometimes kobe and he was up dont worry about his age.just remember 7th game in boston,he was glarious and played however he wants and made it but I can see after all this posts we have enough hedo haters maybe more than in boston and this is stupid.I think magic fun doesnt deserve him and I hope he will leave and show how he is important for orlando.in next year we ll try again how we can past pistons if we lucky then boston.. if lee made that a lay up,if howard made a free throws or jamer could understand they need 3 or jamer never be on the courth.. ohh refrees they were so bad in all play offs! and where was lewis in game 4 and 5 ? I cant mad at howard becauuse refrees were so bad in all play off but he could be much smarter.especially in 5th gme nelson and alston's turnovers made hedo in foul troubles and made ariza game in.. when hode is out orland is down it was so obvious in all playoffs

Crestfallen of Eskisehir,

Let go , mate.You dont have to prove ,justify ,explain nothing.Hidayet did have his NBA moments.He got the American approach ,professionalism , tactics ,know - how and whatnot fully.
It would be just as exciting to watch him play for Barcelona,Panathinaikos,CSKA Moskow and win the Euroleague.
Euroleague certianly doesnt have the razzmatazz,pageantry,hd broadcasting,dancer chicks,Chinese acrobat dames and sshit but it is one solid challange mate.
How about that?

I've hated Turks ever since I saw the movie Midnight Express.

Go and figure.
