Hedo Turkoglu

2014-15 Salary: None, Unrestricted Free Agent

This one is simple.

Regardless of if he’s healed following the back injury suffered in the first round versus the Golden State Warriors that wiped away the remainder of his postseason, Turkoglu provides little to the Clippers going forward. He’s old, slow, can’t shoot, isn’t the playmaker that he was with the Orlando Magic and would take up cap space that could go toward bringing in an effective player at the same position or another. Add in the factor that he’ll be a year older and it’s hard to see the front office wanting to bring the Turkish forward back for another season.

Best-case scenario for Turkoglu is that he re-signs with the team following the All-Star break on a 10-day contract deal similar to how he joined the team this season. Outside of that, it’s hard to see any situation where Turkoglu is an impact player in 2014-15. (Trisity Miller)
