Miroslav Raduljica cashed out of China, next stop NBA?

Reading Time: 1 minutes

Serbian big man Miroslav Raduljica signed a one-year $1.5 million guaranteed contract in China this year and after only 14 games played he’s decided to take the money and run.

The team has agreed to release him but not before buying out a big portion of his contract. Shangdong paid out $1.2 million of his $1.5 million contract. An injury kept Raduljica sidelined for most of the CBA season resulting in a big bust for Shangdong. Averaging 21 minutes per game in 14 total games, Raduljica’s 18 points and nine rebounds per contest was nowhere near what Shangdong expected of him.

There are a lot of rumours around the NBA stating Raduljica might find himself a team as early as January. With all that Chinese money in the bank, don’t be surprised if an NBA team gets him at a bargain price.

    WTF? 18/9 in 2 minutes and it was nowhere near what they expected?

    Must be misprint

      Eighteen and nine is under-performing in a league where foreign players avg. 40 and 15.
