Despite trailing at halftime (32-23), Serbia turned the tables in the second half and logged a 61-56 win over France at the AusTiger Tournament. With this win, Serbia stayed the only undefeated national team in preparations for the 2019 FIBA World Cup in China as they won all ten of their games. Miroslav Raduljica led the way with 13 points followed by Nikola Jokic’s ten while Vasilije Micic added nine points. Bogdan Bogdanovic, Nemanja Bjelica and Vladimir Lucic didn’t play for Serbia.
Panathinaikos is a breath away from signing Miroslav Raduljica and strengthening their frontline. The “greens” are also in advanced negotiations with Nikola Milutinov. After the acquisition of Sasa Pavlovic, Sasa Djordjevic set the reinforcement of the frontline as his first primary objective. Miroslav Raduljica is his “chosen one” as he highly appreciates his offensive talent. Besides, in last year’s Mundobasket, under “Sale’s” instructions, Raduljica had an excellent tournament with 13 points and 4,6 rebounds per game.
Sasha Pavlovic is a deal done, but Greek powerhouse Panathinaikos is close to the second Serbian for the new roster: center Miroslav Raduljica. Parts are nearing to an agreement, source told Sportando. Radulijca played last season in China with Shandong Lions, then he moved to NBA to sign with the Minnesota TImberwolves. New head-coach Sasha Djordjevic considers Raduljica as an essential piece for his type of game.
Now, you got back at Beograd. Which is the next goal of yours? Are you talking with European teams? You prefer to try and find again a contract in the NBA? There are some rumors that a greek team approached you? Is it true? My next goal is to heal my ankle totally so I can be ready for whatever comes next. That is most important thing for me right now. I didn’t talk directly to European teams (Greek teams too) but they showed some interest in me although I was waiting to see how situation with the Wolves will end up. It ended like you all know, but I decided that my health is most important. I will see when my recovery will end up and I’ll try to choose what is best for me in that moment. That means quality of team and time I got until the end of the season that team is in.
Serbian big man Miroslav Raduljica spoke with Sport24.gr about his experience in China, his return to the NBA, his future and the next Eurobasket with Serbia National Team. (…) After China, you signed with the Timberwolves. How was your coming back to the NBA? to play along with Nikola Pekovic? To belong at the elite, to play against the best? I felt very good being in NBA again, but it went little rough with the Wolves because in my opinion I didn’t get a chance to prove that my ankle is good or bad to stay there. I had an injury in China which turned out that isn’t healed very good there and I couldn’t get guaranteed contract until the end of the season, but again, I feel very sorry that I didn’t get the chance to play little more when I was there.
Serbian sports newspaper Sportski Zurnal reported Sunday that former Bucks center Miroslav Raduljica is finalizing a deal with the Wolves to join them for the rest of the season. Bought out by his Chinese team for $1.2 million last week, he’d give the Wolves a legitimately sized center — he’s a 7-footer — to back up Gorgui Dieng. A Wolves source said that Raduljica is one of many options the team is considering for its 15th roster spot — currently held by Jeff Adrien — but that no final decision had been made as of Sunday.
Shandong Flaming Bulls are strongly pursuing two players, because they need a center for next season: Serbian Miroslav Radulijca and Mexican Gustavo Ayon, the second one reported by Shams Charania. Radulijca increased his value playing an important role in World Cup, where Serbia reached the Final Game against USA. Ayon is in talks with Real Madrid and San Antonio Spurs, but can consider the big offer (around $2.000.000) and decide to take his talents to China.
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.”
