Raduljica was waived by the Clippers (via the stretch provision) on Friday, just three days after they had acquired him from Milwaukee. After one season in the league, he said he wants to stay (though it was “a little cold in Milwaukee”). He said he’s only heard rumors about any other teams that may want him and “I’m waiting to see what’s going to happen next.” NBA.com

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. RealGM

Yet according to a person with knowledge of the Clippers' situation, it's likely that Delfino - who is owed $3.25 million next season and has a team option for the 2015-16 campaign - will be waived using what's deemed the "stretch provision." The provision allows the payment of a player's contract (and the related salary cap hit) to be stretched out over several years, and would allow the Clippers to make another addition via free agency (or perhaps even two). Because the Clippers used their non-taxpayer midlevel exception on center Spencer Hawes in July, they are operating with a hard salary cap and have less than a million dollars remaining to work with because of it. The person spoke to USA TODAY Sports on the condition of anonymity because the moves had not yet been made. USA Today Sports

Another possibility is big man Ekpe Udoh, the 27-year-old who visited with the Clippers on Tuesday. Udoh, who was taken sixth overall by the Golden State Warriors in the 2010 draft, spent the last three seasons coming off the bench for the Milwaukee Bucks. Raduljica is also likely to be waived by the Clippers, and his possible buyout (he's owed $1.5 million) could also create more salary cap space. USA Today Sports

Larry Drew said he was "blindsided" by the way he lost his job as head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks. Commenting at length for the first time since he was fired by the Bucks' new ownership June 30, Drew said his firing was "definitely mystifying." Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

Word leaked out that the Nets had given permission to Milwaukee to speak to Kidd, without the knowledge of either Bucks general manager John Hammond or Drew. Kidd was signed to a three-year, $15 million contract a few days later. "From their (the owners') standpoint, there's no set time for these type of things," Drew said in an interview with the Journal Sentinel. "It caught me in a position when I least expected it. But I know how these things work. I don't have any hard feelings, any grudges against anybody. "Marc (Lasry) called me and I just wished him luck. I've got to keep moving forward."
