In many ways, this is liberating for Udrih. In my opinion, he's one of the better PGs in the game. I really think he could start for a few teams, including my hometown Cleveland Cavaliers, and come off the bench for many more. But this is not a good time to try to find a spot in the NBA, because all teams are trying to get rid of players. Udrih is one of the many, many players who get suffocated in lousy situations for reasons that are, well, not understandable. I don't know why Jaques Vaughn was considered so much better than Udrih.Spurs trade PG Udrih to Timberwolves, October 29, 2007
The San Antonio Spurs traded point guard Beno Udrih to the Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for a second-round draft pick in 2008.
The 6-3 Udrih averaged 5.2 points and 1.8 assists per game over three seasons with the Spurs.
The 25-year-old averaged a career-high 5.9 points per game in 2004-05 and appeared in 207 games - including six starts - during his tenure with the Spurs.
Later in the day, Udrih was waived by the Timberwolves.
So what's next for Udrih? Any rumors? Will he return to Israel, where Maccabi has been snatching up their old players and new free agents? Or is he headed for Ulan Bater, whose team has been struggling to schedule games?
