10:00 AM ET 09.28 | Hedo Turkoglu remains on the Orlando Magic's roster for now, but his days playing for the team are over. Although team officials and Turkoglu's camp have not reached a buyout deal, both sides have agreed that Turkoglu will not join the team when it convenes for the start of training camp Tuesday or at any time after that. "Our organization has a great deal of respect for Hedo and the contributions he's made to the team over the years," Magic General Manager Rob Hennigan told the Orlando Sentinel. The full $12 million amount won't become fully vested until Jan. 10, which is the day when any remaining nonguaranteed contracts throughout the league become fully guaranteed. So why haven't the Magic just waived Turkoglu already? On one hand, team officials want to negotiate a buyout for under $6 million. But -- and perhaps more importantly to them -- the Magic seem to regard Turkoglu's contract as an asset and want to hold onto the contract until they're convinced they've exhausted all options for a potential trade.
