Might Hedo Turkoglu be traded this season?
Six days before the opening of the Magic's training camp, small forward Hedo Turkoglu, the league's most improved player last season, talked about heading into perhaps his last season with the team.
Turk indicated he will opt out of his contract --- which runs through 2009-10 --- after this season. He'll explore free agency if the Magic don't re-sign him.
"It's hard to tell if I'm staying or leaving," he told me Tuesday.
More from Schmitz:
The Magic will take 16 players into training camp next week, adding small forward Jeremy Richardson and power forward-center Dwayne Jones to the roster.
Jones, 6 feet 11, 250 pounds, finished last season with the Cleveland Cavaliers, participating in five playoff games as a backup.
Jones, 25, has played 74 NBA games over three seasons.
Richardson, 6 feet 7, has played 33 NBA games since 2006, finishing last season with the Atlanta Hawks. He has played for the Portland Trail Blazers, Memphis Grizzlies and San Antonio Spurs.
The 25-year-old out of Delta State is a scorer, averaging 25.3 points in 12 games last season with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants of the NBA Developmental League.
Richardson and Jones join point guard Mike Wilks, point guard Anthony Johnson and shooting guard Mikael Pietrus as the Magic's new players.
