According to reports the Cavaliers are near signing 6'10 forward Damjan Rudez from Croatia.

Last season the 27 year old Rudez averaged 10.8 points, 2 rebounds, and 1.4 assists while shooting 49.9 percent from the floor and 45.8 from deep. He likely will be able to spend some time at both forward positions, but projects to be a small forward off the bench in the NBA.
