Miroslav Raduljica is weighing his options as he signed a contract with Relativity Sports to gauge NBA interest on him as rumors are swirling that he plans to move out of his Euroleague team Panathinaikos of the Greek Basketball League.
The 28-year old Serbian national as reported by Jeff Goodman has another year with his team and under his contract it includes a buyout in place clause that would help him transfer to any team in the NBA, considering his seven-feet tall and with a bulk at 255 lbs. he could easily make his way inside the paint and be unstoppable.
Many of basketball insiders know of Raduljica, who also plays for the Serbian National basketball team in international competitions. He is also no stranger to the NBA as he first played for the Milwaukee Bucks back in the 2013 season. Raduljica averaged just 9.7 minutes per game and in his 48 minutes stunt inside the court, he would average 3.8 points and 2.3 rebounds. Then, on Aug. 2014, he was traded to the Los Angeles Clippers along with Carlos Delfino and a 2015 second round draft pick in exchange for Jared Dudley and a 2017 conditional first round draft pick and on August 29, 2014, he was waived by the Clippers.
After that Raduljica would be a journeying man playing abroad, having stints with the Shandong Lions in the Chinese Basketball Association wherein he would make his mark averaging 18 points and nine rebounds per game. It was then that the Minnesota Timberwolves noticed him and in Jan 2015, he signed a 10-day contract with the Timberwolves then signed a second 10-day contract again by Jan. 19 appearing in five games.
Then, by July 2015, Raduljica made his way into the Euroleague as he signed a two-year contract with Panathinaikos and on Dec. 4 scored his career high 25 points leading his team to beat Barcelona, 93-86.
As the NBA season is coming to a close, Raduljica hopes that a new door would open for him in the NBA and that he would get a huge contract that would also suit his talent and skills inside the court. He is hoping that with the free agency coming soon and with the draft as well, teams would also take a second look at his credentials.
