Cavaliers close to signing Croatian F Damjan Rudez

USA TODAY Sports

The Cavaliers appear to be getting an early jump on offseason signings as they are reportedly close to signing Croatian sharpshooter Damjan Rudez.

According to reports the Cavaliers are near signing 6'10 forward Damjan Rudez from Croatia. Toronto, Indiana and Utah were also rumored to be in the running for the sharpshooter, but Cleveland seems to be the team that piqued his interest the most. Could this possibly be influenced by potentially signing David Blatt to be the next head coach?

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.
