Being already 30 Turkoglu will go after a multi-year contract that could be his last lucrative deal before he is past his prime. Although the chances are that he will remain in the NBA with a long term contract worth a bit more than $10 million/per season a move to Europe should not be ruled out as a tax-free European contract worth around 6 million euros is the equivalent of the aforementioned NBA contract.
It may sound as a lot but of money for one player in Europe, but after all Josh Childress is being paid around 4.5 million euros per season tax-free, so a proven European NBA star could ask and get more.
The final questions is, is any European club willing to make such an extravagant big for Turkoglu amidst the global financial crisis? Only time will tell.
