    Hm, I had no idea he had a trade kicker.

    That's unfortunate.

    I'm sure he will waive the trade kicker to get out of here! Lets hope at least!

    Yeah, its irregardless at this point. If what's been printed is actually true, then there's no need to worry about the trade kicker.

    I guess this should make us even more mad knowing that BC was kind-hearted enough and loyal to Turk to give him a trade-kicker. I think that just says to a player that, "youre here with us for keeps" and that ungrateful SOB still wanted out eventhough he knows its all his fault he got into that situation anyways.

    Trade kickers are apparently very common. Turkoglu's deal was out of the ordinary. This isn't a deal breaker, it just makes things more difficult. Noc, Noc. Who's there?

    what are you hinting at?


    i could deal with nocioni if he was traded to sac-town it's either that or washington or you might as well just void his contract.

    When I saw the thread title under Everything Raptors I thought the Raptors had made a deal for this guy.

    That trade kicker is a huge blow to Turkoglu's trade value.

    Teams hate trade kickers and avoid them like the plague. It was going to be hard enough to trade him with that large contract but another 15% on top of that? Ugly situation.

    31.800.000 $ his remaining contract ( option year is excluded). It means his kicker is about 4.700.000 $. If he waives some of his kicker, say %30, that makes 3.100.000 $ for 3 years.

    1 million per year in next three year does not make huge difference for buyers if they thinks he is difference maker on their team.
