The title says it all- Hedo Turkoglu is reportedly being shipped out of Toronto. The deal, first reported by Sportsnet, looks as follows:

To Toronto:

Leandro Barbosa

To Phoenix:

Hedo Turkoglu

This trade sees the recently unpopular Turkoglu and his cumbersome contract shipped out in exchange for Steve Nash's backup that averaged one point less than Turkoglu.

Barbosa's contract pays $7.1 million this season with a player option for $7.6 million next season.

Barbosa, at 6'3", projects to be a PG for the Raptors. Does this mean we should expect the departure of either Jarrett Jack or Jose Calderon?
