    Magic working on Turkoglu buyout

    Club also wants to give Osby training-camp shot

    * Could just be Orlando paper rehashing old news but there wasn't much talk in August about the buyout, so maybe things are picking back up again.

    Magic working on Turkoglu buyout
    Thanks for the news. It's a given Turkoglu will be waived/bought out either by Orlando or by another team just after having traded. Magic could wait to see if his partially guaranteed contract could be used in a trade but there is the risk of a season ending injury that will make his contract guaranteed. So I guess they won't wait too long.

    The Eurobasket that start Wednesday, will surely gives a better idea of Turkoglu's level.

    Lukas Malinauskas ‏@mluukaz 32m Lithuania 88:83 Georgia. LTU stats. Georgia: Shermadini 21 (14reb),Sanikidze 28 (9reb), Markoishvili 18. @EuroBasket
    And Sanikidze continues to produce. He's not going back to Sienna. Can we please get him into training camp. I would really like to see what he's got at the NBA level.

    He would fit the criteria for a player to bring this late in the season:

    1. Has familiarity with the NBA game
    2. Team is tied for last place in standings for the Top 16

    Their season will end around April 3-10 so it would be cutting it close. One issue with Nocioni, does he want to come back to the NBA? I've read in interviews that he likes playing in Euroleague at this stage of his career.

    True.

    Not sure on his contract situation with Baskonia, I think he is on a 1 year deal.

    Since Baskonia won't advance past the Top 16 would they be more willing to accept a buyout of Nocioni? Do they want to re-sign him? What is their opinion of Odom and his impact on the team next season?

    Another thing, do Spurs want to fill out the last roster spot?

    Seems like Baynes is working his way into the 4th big rotation spot.

    Do the Spurs want another SF/PF type player to back up Kawhi?

    If anyone feels bored/starved for basketball until the WC starts, the U17 WC tips off in two days:
    http://www.fiba.com/world/u17/2014

    It's played in Dubai though, so the games will probably only be at watchable times for the Europe/Asia crowd.
    I still remember watching young Bertans (struggled like shooting the ball there..), Valanciunas, Saric, Karasev, Nogueira, Bogdanovic play at the U19s in 2011. Looking back now, that was one incredibly stacked international age group.

    In the past I have been finding stats at various team and league sites.
    I just noticed that many ( Stats include Liga ACB (Spain), LNB Pro A (France), Lega Serie A (Italy), Greek Basket League, and the Euroleague and Eurocup) are at the bottom of the Spurs team page on Basketball-Reference.

    Drom, I didn't forget about this post. I just didn't know where to put it. I was going to make a more ambitious thread cover Spurs international stashees, but I lost motivation. I'm just going to drop this here for now so others can see it. If I (or someone else, hint) end up making that thread, I'll move this post to the OP. Thanks for the contribution.

    I do not know who has his NBA rights, we haven’t contacted his agent, I do not know his status, we have not done anything yet, what I’m telling you is my personal point of view”.
    His rights are held by Philly, he was drafted in 2014, pick 52... Wouldn't bet on this going anywhere.

    Would you trade our second round to Philly for him?
