Deal breakdown: Turkoglu to Suns

7/14/2010 - NBA Toronto Raptors

As harsh as I've been on Raptors team president Bryan Colangelo for some missteps in recent years (signing Hedo Turkoglu, Amir Johnson's deal, the Jay Triano era), I'll say this for him: He's quick on his feet. Nobody does triage better than this guy.

A year ago, he had only a few days to figure out how to convert a potentially depth-destroying straight signing of Turkoglu into a three-team sign-and-trade that left his exceptions intact and allowed him to build out the roster.
