Hedo changes his mind

So apparently Hedo Turkoglu is NOT going to be a Portland Trailblazer. Instead he's going to Toronto because he likes it better there.

Turkoglu will make about $3 million more over the life of the contract than he would have made in Portland, but a bigger reason for his change of heart, a source told ESPN.com, was his desire to play in Toronto, a more international and cosmopolitan city -- one with a large Turkish population -- and his familiarity with the Eastern Conference after having spent the last five seasons with the Magic.

Ouch, Portland got burned in this article. Couldn't ESPN have said "Hedo doesn't want to play in a cow town" since that basically has the same effect as calling Toronto "a more international and cosmopolitan city?"
