Brazilian point guard Marcelinho Huertas wants to play in the NBA and is not even close to a proposed move to Galatasaray, his agent says.

Several Turkish media outlets have recently linked Huertas with a summer move to Istanbul but it was quickly dismissed by agent Gerard Darnes of Octagon Sports.

There was talk earlier in the off-season that the Brazilian, who spent last season with Barcelona would be interested in a move to the Toronto Raptors.
