Suns May Bring Hedo Turkoglu off the Bench

Turkoglu says he’s got no problems with being a Sixth Man on certain nights. The AZ Republic reports: “Gentry said he is considering bring Turkoglu off the bench to keep him from mismatches against bigger post players, following his depature from Monday’s game after 2:23 due to fouls he picked up against Zack Randolph and Marc Gasol. ‘I will not play Hedo against a guy like Zack Randolph,’ Gentry said. ‘It’s unfair to him. I’d rather have him in the game five minutes later where he has no fouls than to take him out in the first five minutes.’ Turkoglu has said he would be open to coming off the bench.”

    I am glad Toronto got rid of this loser.

  • johnny c

    i miss the orlando turkoglu, too bad the system made him and not the other way around. and my suns made such a bad move trading barbosa for this guy.

  • embracethemartian

    Suns should try to dump this dude for some Kevin Love.

    Could be read. “suns may bench” a Turkey

  • tRay

    The so called “MJ of Turkey” is so damn overpaid for his talents. I guess the suns just like to lose and would rather get spanked by my Lakers instead of improving their roster. Freakin losers.

    No wonder Nash is unhappy in Phoenix. Letting Amare walk, and then bringing in this chump and his giant salary, would piss anyone off. Not to mention the fact that Nash’s best friend is Jay Triano, who had major problems with Turk last year. I hope Nash can go somewhere else to finish up his career, even if it’s just to help a young team. NY? Toronto? Miami? Houston?

    can they trade him for Iverson?

    Hedo apparently banged MUBWAR’s mom…just sayin…


    such a weak response from wayno. Hedo took 50m from toronto so he can party all night and then say he can’t play the game complaining about being sick. I only blame our GM Bryan Colangelo for bringing that loser to Canada. Good luck to the desert.

    Isnt nash supposed to make him an allstar? What happened? You mean(gasp) nash has been severely overrated? No, that cant be. Nash is the best, he makes everyone around him better. He is magical.

    Money on the bench.

  • T-Money

    Dude is 6’10. Man up.

    why did the suns get him? poor gentry has to try to play him as a PF. Why couldn’t they just swing a trade for Dlee for Stoudemire. Oh well they’re not bad now. Warrick seems like a poor man’s Stoudemire but not sure where turk fits.

  • johnny c

    hedo took money from the raptors organization, not from the city of toronto. dont worry mubwar, hedo didnt take anything from your wallet. and yeah, we aint happy to have him here either. i blame the suns organization for this, not the city of phoenix, and not hedo, dude’s just trying to get paid and anyone would have done what he did (signing for way more than they worth). dont hate the player, hate the game. and @JL, i really wanted david lee here, imagine how it felt hearing that we were getting hedo’s inflated contract.

    Tarzan, don’t be dumb. How can Nash make someone who needs to control the ball to be better be better? I mean, use your damn head.
    Nash dropped 28-7-14 yesterday.

  • http://sdjfklf.com Jukai

    By the way Tarzan, a while ago you mentioned Nash’s numbers in assists dropping: the last four games have been 9, 15, 11, 14.
    He’s averaging 9.5 assists and it’s rising every game.
    So, you ready to apologize or…?

  • http://sdjfklf.com Jukai

    Oh and Amare had 14-9. Fantastic Tarzan!

  • Justin

    cosign everything Jukai said. Tarzan, what kind of a dumbass statement is that? Anyone who hates on Steve Nash doesn’t know a thing about the game

  • http://hibachisabas.blogspot.com/ Toni Kukoc

    dang, i was happy when i at first misread the title as “Suns willing to waive Hedo”

  • Rainman

    @ Toni kukoc, waiving such a big contract and getting nothing in return would be the stupidest thing in the history of stupid things.

  • http://hibachisabas.blogspot.com/ Toni Kukoc

    Tarzan consider yourself served courtesy of Jukai

  • Rainman

    @ Tarzan: Nash has made Hakim WArrick look pretty good actually, isnt he like leading the league in dunks so far this year coming off the bench?


  • http://hibachisabas.blogspot.com/ Toni Kukoc

    @Rainman, it was more of a sarcasm on how stupid it was to get him in the first place.

  • http://twitter.com/smileyoufckers Bryan

    Co-sign Jukai about Nash. I was just saying that on twitter.

  • ClydeSays

    “The MJ of Turkey”?! Wow. Never heard that before. SVG really did get the best out of him. Hedo wasn’t as good before or since…
