Turkoglu is making about $11.8 million this season. He has one more year remaining on his current deal, but it is only partially guaranteed. He was picked as the NBA’s most improved player in 2008 while with Orlando.

Orlando went into the game with a 15-36 record in its first season of rebuilding following the departure of All-Star center Dwight Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers this past offseason.

Asked about Turkoglu’s future, Hennigan said it is yet to be determined.

“I think we’re going to get through this step. We’ll worry about the summer when the summer comes,” Hennigan said. “Contracts are what they are. We have to make decisions about a lot of different things in the summer and certainly the Hedo situation will be one of them. But we’re not able to comment now on what the decision will be.”

Turkoglu said he is focused on serving his suspension.

“I’ve had my best years in Orlando and I’ve tried to play as much as I can here. Certain situations are out of my hands,” he said. “So like Rob said, we’ll wait for the summer to come and we’ll see what happens. Right now I want to deal with this and get it over as quick as I can.”
