Hedo Turkoglu's Market Shake-Up

Hedo Turkoglu going to the Raptors leaves the Blazers as practically the last big cap spender (a few other big cap spenders are rumored to be conserving for another summer) and the Raptors heavily thin at the bench. This means the FA market still has some quality players, but the money left over is small from the teams, and the Raptors MIGHT entertain Sign and Trade ideas with Orlando. After all this is Raptors last big chance to keep Bosh long term and getting Turk is a big plus, but if they devastate their bench, the big plus is just a small plus. Raptors need to renounce about 3+ players to make this work. It makes sense to S/T with Orlando so that Toronto is not outright signing Turk and thus not needing to renounce players. What they trade varies from a big Trade Exception to players like Parker or even Marion (good fit?). If renounced , these players could be picked up by MLE parts and Toronto's previous interests are more open as well like Linas Kleiza supposedy. The S/T is better tho for both teams, Raptors get depth still and Orlando gets a TE or a player or two with no spent MLE yet. Should these two teams do a S/T? Anyone on the Raptors of interest? Any other FA's should be pursued, or be pursued in a 3 way with Orlando, Toronto, ..... ?
