Hidayet Turkoglu - EuroBasket 2013 Profile

Team 2012-13: Orlando Magic (USA-NBA)
Career: Efes Pilsen Istanbul (Turkey-TBL, 1997-00); Sacremento Kings (USA-NBA, 2000-03); San Antonio Spurs (USA-NBA, 2003-04); Orlando Magic (USA-NBA, 2004-09); Toronto Raptors (USA-NBA, 2009-10); Phoenix Suns (USA-NBA, 2010); Orlando Magic (USA-NBA, 2010-13)


Turkoglu may be 34 and may have lost a step and a bit of jumping ability but he can still provide leadership for some of Turkey's younger players, calling upon big-game experience in another big tournament. Turkoglu returns to the national team after taking last summer off and the small forward should come to Slovenia well rested after being suspended for 20 games by the NBA in February 2013 for testing positive for methenolone. He also will want to look past the suspension and show he has a lot of skill left to give. Turkoglu remains a forward who is comfortable handling the ball and can also work in the post against smaller defenders. Despite a horrible season from long range in the NBA in 2012-13, Turkoglu can also stroke the ball from the outside.
