orl Forward: 6’10, 200 lbs; 4th year, Croatia 

NBA Role: stretch four UnderDOG

An oversized ‘relief’ shooter w/ a pretty quick release, Croatia’s Damjan Rudez is trying to find his place in the Association; Damo’s a shooter ft. some ball skills – can put the rock down and throw home some baby floaters & runners; isn’t very strong but is a big forward in today’s era – stretch four (plays a lot on the perimeter) – but who does he defend? Built like a small forward, Rudez needs to add strength, while learning ways to defend bigger players in the meantime; adjusting well to the NBA 3-point line; is he a threat to crack Frank Vogel’s rotation at some point?* – Damo complements ORL’s three-point challenged guards & forwards on the perimeter

*Vogel coached Damo in Indy 

Signature Shot: ‘launch’ 3-pointer
