Turkoglu has minor surgery in Turkey

Just read it on ESPN.com



Phoenix Suns forward Hedo Turkoglu underwent minor gall bladder surgery in his native Turkey last week, The Arizona Republic reported on its website.

Turkoglu, whom the Toronto Raptors dealt to the Suns for Leandro Barbosa and Dwayne Jones, was in Turkey practicing with his country's national team for the upcoming World Championships. He is not expected to miss much time, according to the report.

Suns coach Alvin Gentry said the procedure was "not a big deal."

"We checked with the doctors, and it's a minor procedure. He [was] just having some gallstones removed," Gentry said, according to the report. "He's supposed to be playing in three to four days and has been cleared to travel next week."

The surgery was first reported by Turkish media, according to The Republic.

Turkoglu, a 6-foot-10 forward, had a disappointing 2009-10 season in Toronto, where he signed as a free agent after helping the Orlando Magic reach the 2009 NBA Finals and winning the NBA's most improved player award.

Turkoglu still needs to pass a physical with the Suns, according to the report.

Man, what the Raptors gave that guy is atrocious in terms of a contract. Actually, the Raptors have handed out a ton of bad contracts as of late if you include Bargnani and Calderon in there as well. Then they sign Linas Kleiza this year to another ludicrous amount of cash - just stockpiling all the foreign kids.

Yeah they over pay for everyone. Even what they gave Amir Johnson was too much for him to be paid. They just try to throw money at the problem buy outbidding other teams on players who aren't worth the money or time.

Plus there are just tons of bad contracts being handed out this year because of the new CBA next year.

...and the Raptors suck.
