Orlando Magic rumor: Hedo Türkoğlu works out for Clippers, according to report

Hedo Türkoğlu - Christian Petersen

The former Magic forward auditioned for a new NBA job, a report indicates.

Just three days after the Orlando Magic waived him to free a roster spot and save money, Hedo Türkoğlu worked out for the Los Angeles Clippers, reports David Baumann. L.A. is in the market for another playmaker after losing All-Star point guard Chris Paul for at least three weeks to a shoulder injury, and Baumann cites a source as saying Türkoğlu could fit the bill.

As ESPN's Marc Stein reported Thursday, Türkoğlu has been working out on his own since he and the Magic mutually agreed he should stay away from the team for the 2013/14 season, staying in shape and hoping for another NBA opportunity. "I'm not retiring," Türkoğlu told Baumann on Monday. "Going to continue my career on a different team to help win a title."

In his eight-year Magic career, Türkoğlu averaged 14.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 3.9 assists. The 34-year-old did not fit in to Orlando's future plans and so it deemed him expendable.

"Orlando will always be my second home," Türkoğlu tweeted Friday after the Magic waived him. Now, he appears to be looking for a third.
