The Los Angeles Lakers could emerge as a suitor for free agent Hedo Turkoglu, according to a source: The Los Angeles Lakers could emerge as a suitor for unrestricted free agent Hedo Turkoglu, who was waived by the Orlando Magic on Friday. The Lakers reportedly reached out to the Magic to inquire about Turkoglu prior to his release and they may be interested in signing the 34-year-old veteran once he clears waivers. Turkoglu was paid $6 million from Orlando for this season, even though he has yet to appear in a game and hasn’t even been practicing with the team. Had the Magic held onto Turkoglu after next Tuesday, he would’ve been owed $12 million for the season, so Orlando essentially saved $6 million by waiving him now. Sulia

The Cleveland Cavaliers have called virtually every team in the league this week as part of their continuing search for a trade partner interested in dealing for Andrew Bynum's cap-friendly contract before the magical date of Jan. 7, according to sources close to the process.

After spending training camp, the preseason and the regular season in a purgatory of sorts, Hedo Turkoglu's period of limbo with the Orlando Magic is nearing a resolution. The veteran small forward can expect to have his situation resolved no later than the close of business on Jan. 7. Turkoglu, 34, no longer fits into the team's plans. Orlando Sentinel

Team officials prefer to allocate his playing time to younger players, such as 21-year-old Tobias Harris or 20-year-old Maurice Harkless. Even 28-year-old Arron Afflalo, a natural shooting guard, has started 15 games at Turkoglu's position of small forward this season to open time for rookie Victor Oladipo to play one of the guard positions.

The Magic have yet to reach an agreement with small forward Hedo Turkoglu, another veteran player whose contract is only partially guaranteed for next season. Turkoglu, a 13-year veteran who has been with the Magic for two stints, is hoping to work out a buyout with the Magic so that he too can join a veteran-laden team. The 32-year-old Turkoglu averaged career lows across the board last season, but is hoping he can still catch on with another team and continue his NBA career. NBA.com

Should an agreement be reached and he clears waivers, Turkoglu will join the free-agent market. The Pacers have had strong interest in the past, but it's unclear if they'd have a roster spot for him. Before the signing of free agent Chris Copeland, the Pacers were a team with interest in Turkoglu, league sources said. Now, Indiana has become a less likely landing spot for him. Yahoo! Sports
