Miroslav Raduljica Expected To Become Free For Mid-January NBA Deal

Seven-foot center Miroslav Raduljica is expected to become available in free agency within the next one-to-two weeks depending on a buyout settlement with Shandong of the Chinese Basketball Association, sources told RealGM.

Raduljica has received interest from several NBA teams for a midseason acquisition, sources said, but no deal would take place before the Jan. 10 date for contract guarantees around the league.

In 13 games for Shandong, Raduljica averaged 17.6 points and 8.4 rebounds while shooting 56 percent from the field. Shandong has brought Earl Clark on a tryout deal and is widely expected to reach a parting agreement with Raduljica.

After being traded from the Milwaukee Bucks to the Los Angeles Clippers, Raduljica was released and had dialogue with several NBA teams before signing a guaranteed contract with Shandong. He averaged 3.8 points, 2.3 rebounds and 54 percent shooting in one season with Milwaukee.

In the Serbian national team’s silver medal run in the World Cup of Basketball over the summer, Raduljica, 26, scored 13 points and grabbed nearly five rebounds per game.

Daniel Orton Signs With Sichuan In China, Set To Replace Metta World Peace

Free agent Daniel Orton has signed with Sichuan of the Chinese Basketball Association and is set to replace Metta World Peace on the permanent roster, sources told RealGM.

Orton formally signed his lucrative contract with Sichuan under the plan of finishing the Chinese season alongside fellow American import Mike Efevberha, who is leading the club in points (26.4), rebounds (8.1), assists (2.5) and blocks (.86) per game.

After signing a rich deal in the CBA last offseason, World Peace has averaged 19.6 points and 6.2 rebounds while shooting 42 percent from the field over 13 games for Sichuan. World Peace, a 15-year NBA veteran and a one-time All-Star, had hoped to return to the league once his season in China ended.

World Peace has received scheduled treatment on his knee to improve its fitness and will only miss a little time, a source told RealGM.

Orton, a first round pick in the 2010 NBA draft out of Kentucky, has played three NBA seasons with the Orlando Magic, Oklahoma City Thunder and Philadelphia 76ers. The 6-foot-10 big man averaged 2.8 points and 2.5 rebounds in 51 games.

Orton, 24, went to training camp with the Washington Wizards in October, before requesting his release to sign a temporary deal with Shanxi in China.
