Hidayet Turkoglu, Turkey

Turkish swingman Hidayet Turkoglu (better known as Hedo) spent the peak of his interesting career with the Orlando Magic.

During his time in central Florida, Turkoglu was a 15.8-point-per-game scorer, while chipping in 4.6 rebounds and 3.7 assists nightly. He was 2007-08’s Most Improved Player, and helped guide the Magic to the 2009 NBA Finals.

Although Orlando was ultimately tossed aside by the Lakers in just five games, Turkoglu performed well in the championship series, averaging 18.0 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.8 assists per contest.

Today, the Turk ranks sixth in career rebounds for the Magic, and sixth in assists.
