Magic expected to waive Al Harrington, Hedo Turkoglu barring trades


Two veterans who barely played for Orlando last season could find themselves on the open market.

On a team clearly rebuilding after the Dwight Howard trade, the Orlando Magic had little use for veterans Al Harrington and Hedo Turkoglu last season. As a result, both could soon find themselves on the market.

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports that the team will attempt to trade both first, but if a partner can't be found, both are likely to be released.

Harrington is signed through 2015 and, according to Roberts, the Magic "loved his professionalism this season." Harrington played in just 10 games, averaging 5.1 points per game. He's a career 35 percent three-point shooter who could find a role as a stretch four on a team looking for perimeter shooting help.

Turkoglu is signed through 2014, though his salary is only partially guaranteed. He averaged 2.9 points per game last season. Like Harrington, his greatest strength at this point in his career is likely his shooting. He's a 38 percent career three-point shooter.
