Hedo May Not Return to Magic

Hedo Turkoglu's run with the Orlando Magic appears to be over.

A day after the Magic acquired Vince Carter from the New Jersey
Nets, Turkoglu's agent said Friday that he sent a notice to Orlando
earlier this week that his client will opt out of his contract to become a free agent. Agent Lon Babby said the Magic had made Turkoglu an initial offer that Orlando general manager Otis Smith described as a "jumping off point."

But Carter's acquisition signals the Magic are jumping in another direction.

Orlando's payroll will likely dip into the luxury tax for the first time in franchise history, and Turkoglu is looking for a big payday after helping the Magic reach the NBA finals last season.

Turkoglu's decision was first reported by The Orlando Sentinel.
