1) Hedo Turkoglu tells Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel that he would like to keep playing in Orlando and finish out his contract. Whether that happens, is another issue. Turkoglu is eligible to return for tonight's game, but is not expected to do so.
2) Ben Golliver of the Point Forward grades the first round picks from this year's NBA Draft. Andrew Nicholson and Maurice Harkless get Bs.
