Hedo Turkoglu to Run Point at Times Next Season?


Van Gundy said Monday that he would get both veteran F Hedo Turkoglu and rookie G Courtney Lee into the rotation for a few minutes each practice in a pseudo-point guard role during the first week of workouts.

Both played the point some during voluntary team practices recently and said they would be comfortable trying their hand at filling that spot in certain sets if needed.

"He and Turkoglu together with a 2 or 3 man, sharing the ball handling duties together," Van Gundy said, "which is something I do think we can go to because I do think Courtney is capable of guarding point guards."
