Clippers might sign Hedo Turkoglu
"We could. We're looking at him strong. I can say that much," Rivers said.
The Clippers brought in Turkoglu for a meeting and a workout Thursday and liked what they saw. The Clippers signed point guards Darius Morris and Maalik Wayns to 10-day contracts last week. Their deals will expire before the Clippers' start a 12-day, seven-game road trip Thursday, when Turkoglu potentially could sign.
"He made shots from everywhere," Rivers said after the free agent's workout. "He looked good. It was a good workout."
Turkoglu, who was cut by the Orlando Magic earlier this month, hasn't played this season and played in only 11 games last season because of injuries and a 20-game suspension for use of performance-enhancing drugs.
Rivers and the Clippers have had their eyes on Turkoglu since he became available.
"I just like him as a player," Rivers said last week. "I think he's out there and we should look at him. I've always liked him. He can play [the] three and four. It's a position that we can use in some ways, so we're looking."
