His wife called the shot.

The Blazers are believed to be dangling a 5-year, $50 million deal to lure Hedo Turkoglu to the Pacific Northwest. Turkoglu was given the red carpet treatment by the Blazers on Thursday.

"They are pretty interested, and I'm happy about it, because as a player, that's what you want, interest from teams, especially good teams," Turkoglu said. "They have been a good team the last couple of years. So to get an invitation from them makes you feel special."

The Raptors are the other team competing for Turkoglu and could offer him more money, but are a team on the rebound. Turkoglu's wife is said to have an affinity for the city of Toronto.
