MONDAY, 11:13pm: The deal is official, the team announced.
SUNDAY, 2:08pm: The Wolves have signed Miroslav Raduljica to a second 10-day contract, reports Shams Charania of RealGM (on Twitter), although there’s been no official announcement from the team yet. The big man from Serbia inked his first 10-day deal with Minnesota on January 8th, so he became a free agent when that contract expired at the end of Saturday.
It’s no surprise that the injury-riddled Wolves are electing to bring back Raduljica, since the club is without starting center Nikola Pekovic, and reserve big man Ronny Turiaf went down for the remainder of the season with an injury shortly before the team shipped him off to Philadelphia in the Corey Brewer trade.
Raduljica has appeared in three contests for Minnesota, tallying just 19 total minutes. His best game came against his former team, the Bucks, where he put up four points and nabbed a pair of rebounds in just eight and a half minutes on the floor. If the Wolves want to retain Raduljica after his second 10-day deal expires, they’ll need to ink him for the rest of the season since a player can only sign a pair of 10-day contracts for a team in a given season.
