UPDATE: Hedo Turkoglu and Blazers NOT close to agreeing to five-year deal
Ken Berger is now reporting that Turkoglu will likely end up with the Toronto Raptors.
The Blazers are close to coming to terms on a five year contract with free agent Hedo Turkoglu. Hedo was also pursued by the Toronto Rapters, but they have decided to attempt to keep their own free agents, Shawn Marion and Carlos Delfino.
The addition of Turkoglu certainly gives the Blazers length, depth and some more fire power in the tough Western Conference. Portland will have a big lineup with the 6'11" Turkoglu joining LaMarcus Aldridge and Greg Oden in the frontcourt.
