I find it hard to believe Colin Cowherd knows anything about Mitch Kupchak's thinking. If I'm the Lakers, I would absolutely shut up about wanting Turkoglu because all that would do is increase his trade value.
Having said that, Turk could be a decent fit in LA. We saw how inconsistent Odom was in the playoffs, and how unreliable Artest's scoring is. The Lakers, Magic, and even the Heat have a need for a guy like that.
