It wasn’t that long ago that Ime Udoka was the “final piece” to the Spurs championship plans after they snagged him away from the Portland Trailblazers.
To make a long story short, it didn’t really work out that way – and that wasn’t Udoka’s fault.
After his stay in the Alamo, Udoka returned to Portland earlier this season but was waived at the end of the preseason.
This is far from a blockbuster move, but, I’ve always enjoyed Udoka’s game as he plays the right way. He hits shots and plays solid defense…what more can you ask from a bench player?
For the league minimum…and the chance to remove Desmond Mason from the rotation, I’m all for it.
