Orlando - Hedo Turkoglu and Solomon Jones: Tukoglu is guaranteed to be waived, and indeed may have already been by the time you read this. Meanwhile, the veteran Jones adds little to a young team not intending to win much in the short term, and hasn't played well in his limited time, but the waiving of Turkoglu opens up a roster spot so he may not need to be.

After a summer of great upheaval, expenditure, acquisitions and losses, Phoenix had their roster mostly finalised by August, when the completely unnecessary Hedo Turkoglu trade was completed. [...]

I've said it so many times that it's becoming kind of repetitive, yet it bears no less true - Phoenix really, really, really, really need rebounding help. Amongst their big men, the only average calibre rebounder is Robin Lopez, and even he's only been average for one season. He was a poor rebounder in both his rookie year and his college career. Other than him, Channing Frye is poor at it, Hakim Warrick is flat out bad at it, and Hedo Turkoglu is bloody awful. And yet that's all of the Suns main big man rotation right there. They're going to rebounding whether they know it yet or not, and this advantages Jones more than Siler.

I really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really do not like the Turkoglu acquisition.
