Rudez, 27, has been working out for the Cleveland Cavaliers this week. Several front offices, including Indiana, Toronto and Utah, are taking close looks at him, sources said.

Rudez plays the coveted stretch-four man spot on the floor.

Rudez's production for CAI Zaragoza of the Spanish ACB has helped develop a growing level of value for him in the NBA. He shot 44 percent on 3-pointers in the ACB season, and 52 percent (28-for-54) in the 16-game Euro Cup.

A native of Croatia, Rudez went undrafted in the 2008 NBA draft, which makes him eligible to sign a free-agent deal.
