    Default Turk to Lakers? Colin Cowherd from ESPN

    Everbody know Turk will get more heat from Toronto Fans esp after Bosh departure. Most of you will accuse him to create this mess with his attitudes/performance.. etc..

    I think next thing BC should do after big TE hunting is to trade Turk.

    I haven't listened it but there were some rumors about Turk and LA from ESPN Colin Cowherd . Some one from RealGM had given gist of it like this:

    The context of the comment was that Miami won't be that good cause a lot of other teams have great benches and complimentary pieces to their stars, while Miami won't be able to do that.

    The discussion then turned to how teams have upgraded -- like Orlando getting Duhon and LA getting Blake and looking to trade for Turkoglu as a ball-handling big.
    Walton + Vujacic for Turk?

    No, no ... I was just curious to know if it was actually legit or not. No harm in keeping it up. Good for discussion.

    Vujacic has only one year left on his contract and 5.2Mil while Walton 3 years with 5.6mil/year. Next speculation would be Odom (3 years 8.9mill/year.)

    At this time, I would trade Turk for an expired bag of peanuts, I don't want his attitude to mess with the Young Gunz development!

    Or let the Bynum speculations begin again. If some TE comes from Bosh S&T , Turk can be turned a Center that i think Raptors is desperately needing atm. He has 3 years 15.2mil contract.

    Isn't Odom a ballhandling big? And he's cheaper than Turk and a year younger.

    This is a garbage rumour and a waste of time.

    Who the hell is Colin Cowherd anyway?

    Thanks guyz for killing this thread before giving any argument.

    Someone tell me why its not debatable, you turns an (arguably 2nd most hated person's) unmovable contract to one expiring contract (vujacic) and half with one year less contract (walton). No? and you are in rebuilding mode. thats really great.

    It might not be Odom. They use Odom as 6th man from bench. They need a ball handler who fits their triangle offense.

    This just in from ESPN reporter Lionel Hutz. The Los Angeles Lakers have no interest in Hedo Turkoglu.

    So Turk starts in front of Artest? I don't care about why the Raptors would do it, but it makes very little sense why the Lakers would.

    I don't know about the rumor, but the name is legit. Colin Cowherd is an ESPN Radio host:

    http://sports.espn.go.com/espnradio/show?showId=theherd

    I guess if you want to verify the rumor, you'd have to listen to a recording of the show in question. Good luck with that.

    If any deal goes down for Turk now thats pretty dope, but i still hold the belief that Turk will have a better year without CB4 stalling the offense, with that being said his trade value would increase and by the deadline we could get some better assets from playoff bound teams rather than what i assume to be below average assets being offered now.

    Colin Cowherd's show "The Herd" is played on WGR 550 Buffalo sports radio from 10am-12pm weekdays. He's pretty insightful sometimes, but he's a real douchebag other times. I heard him just before 12 this morning and he was saying Bosh doesn't shoot jumpers! lol, I guess he's never actually seen him play.
