Miroslav Raduljica – traded by the Bucks to the Clippers, who waived himsaid he wanted to remain in the NBA.

After no deal emerged, he signed in China.

But with a buyout secured, he’s headed back to the NBA.

Shams Charania of RealGM:

Free agent center Miroslav Raduljica is finalizing a guaranteed contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves for the remainder of the season, league sources told RealGM.

Announcement: ProBasketballTalk’s partner FanDuel is hosting a one-day $175,000 Fantasy Basketball league for Monday’s NBA games. It’s $25 to join and first prize is $15,000. Starts at 7pm ET on Monday. Here’s the FanDuel link.

With Nikola Pekovic injured, the 7-foot Raduljica provides a little more depth behind Gorgui Dieng at center.

More importantly, Raduljica, 26, gives Minnesota another young player who could play a role in the team’s future. He played well in limited minutes as a rookie for Milwaukee last season, and he could fit in the rotation of a good team.

Plus, he has a pretty great beard.
