DAMJAN RUDEZ RUMORS & GOSSIP

Getting to know the Wolves' Damjan Rudez

Last week, the Minnesota Timberwolves traded for Damjan Rudez.  Who exactly is this newcomer?  The 6-foot-10, 200-pound Croatian turned 29 in June. He played for the first time in the NBA this past season after a long professional career in Europe, where he played for teams in Spain, Croatia, Serbia and Belgium, as well as the Croatian national team. Despite his size, Rudez is...

Pacers trade Rudez for Budinger as another piece falls into place

I was curious to see what other tricks Larry Bird had up his sleeve as free agency slows down and with the Pacers still holding salary cap space. Today, they traded last year’s European rookie shooter Damjan Rudez to the Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for Chase Budinger. It seems strange that the Pacers are giving up on Damo and his economic contract after just one year, but...

Finally, Pacers break losing streak with win over Magic

I have been…um…busy, which explains the dearth of recent posts. I figured the Pacers were losing every game, so I might as well wait it out until they break the streak before posting again. Little did I know it would take this freaking long. Tonight, the Indiana Pacers overcame a 9-point deficit in the 4th quarter and rode the hot shooting of Damjan Rudez to finally snap their...

Watch Pacers rookie Rudez sing ‘Fancy’

It has to be a rookie hazing moment because no one in their right mind with zero vocal skills would go on to a NBA court, and sing “Fancy” by Iggy Azalea. Right? At Pacers Fan Jam, rookie Damjan Rudez took to the mic and belted out “Fancy” and failed miserably. Hey at least he tried.
