Pacers F Damjan Rudez said that he "[doesn't] expect to sit on the bench all season" during his rookie season in the NBA. Advice: Rudez also understands that he won't have a major role in Indiana's rotation, despite the minutes left vacant by Paul George's potentially season-ending injury. "I'm ready to help the team and I'm ready for whatever might happen," Rudez said. "I don't expect to play 30 minutes per game ... I realize that for any European player going to the NBA, the first year is a transition process." The 28-year-old is a proven perimeter scorer in Europe, but he'll be fighting for relevancy behind Solomon Hill and Chris Copeland. More: HoopsHype
The Spurs remain "determined" to re-sign C Aron Baynes this summer, but they're also interested in FA big man Gustavo Ayon. Advice: Baynes is considering signing overseas for around $1.5 million annually, and Ayon has been pursued by at least one team in China. If either guy does end up in San Antonio, they will be fantasy afterthoughts in a frontcourt that includes Tim Duncan, Tiago Splitter, Boris Diaw, Matt Bonner and Jeff Ayres.

Restricted free agent Aron Baynes is entertaining the idea of playing overseas for at least $1.5 million next season. Advice: He's more of just emergency depth with the Spurs and only played 9.3 minutes per game last season. Baynes is a large paint presence and opponents couldn't handle him at lower-level competition like summer league, so he would likely be an above-average player out of the NBA.

Serge Ibaka missed Saturday's FIBA game for Spain due to a sore hamstring. Advice: This is actually good news, as last we heard he was still not 100 percent recovered from a ruptured left calf. Keep in mind it's still August, and Ibaka has plenty of time to get himself fully healthy before the season kicks off around Halloween. Ibaka should be one of the first power forwards taken in fantasy drafts this year. More: Anthony Slater on Twitter
