Miroslav Raduljica To Be Waived By Clippers

After being acquired in a three-player trade, Miroslav Raduljica will be waived by the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday morning, league sources told RealGM.

Raduljica had been prepared for a potential trade from the Milwaukee Bucks, and the team sent him and Carlos Delfino to the Clippers for Jarden Dudley and a first round pick. The Bucks received trade inquiries on Raduljica a season ago, deciding to reject them in order to keep him.

Raduljica, a Serbian seven-foot center, averaged 3.8 points and 2.3 rebounds in 48 games as an NBA rookie last season. He also shot 54 percent from the field and had a player efficiency rating of 15.3.

Raduljica, 26, has two years remaining on his contract: $1.5 million for next season and a non-guaranteed portion in 2015-16.
