Doc Rivers saw what kind of veteran leader the Clippers acquired in Hedo Turkoglu within minutes of his first game.

“The first game [Turkoglu] dressed D.J. (DeAndre Jordan) came out and lost his mind about some play and before I got to him, Hedo ran out on the floor and grabbed him and told him that he was wrong and said, ‘Next play, let’s move on,’” Rivers said. “I was looking at him like, that’s a stranger talking to him right now. They listen because they know he’s been around.”

“I forget how many teams he’s played on and everything he’s been through,” Blake Griffin said. “He was telling me a little bit about when he played for Sacramento with that team and throughout the years when he was with Orlando and Dwight [Howard]. He’s been on a lot of different teams and he’s played well and played kind of different roles in a sense on each team. He commands respect automatically from his experience.”
