Hey Toronto, I'm a Orlando Magic fan that wants to gauge your interest on a purely hypothetical trade. The entire league and fandom knows what a colossal failure Hedo Turkoglu was for you guys. Just how desperate are you to move him this offseason? Rumors are swirling around that my Orlando Magic are inquiring about New Orleans guard Chris Paul. With my being just plain giddy ove the possibility I decided to surmise a trade that could get this thing done.
My conclusion is right here if interested.
Then the rumors say that the factor that is possibly holding up the trade from getting done is Emeka Okafor. Okafor has 52 million left on his contract in which its obvious NO would want to move him. This is a problem for the magic since Okafor absolutely cannot play with Dwight Howard and cant be a backup C for us playing 8 minutes a night for 12 mill per year.
Here is where Toronto comes in. Yep you guessed it. Your big chance at jetisoning Turks bad contract is to take on Okafor's bad contract. You may think your getting screwed but just hear me out. Bad contracts are bad because all you can get for them are bad contracts in return. Okafor may? (what am I saying WILL) help your team more than Turkoglu. You can shift Barney over to his natural PF spot and let Okie do what Okie does best defend and rebound.
This trade is pretty much contingent on you losing Chris Bosh however since it doesnt make sense for you to do this unless Barney can play the 4. So Im done what do you guys think
