The Los Angeles Clippers will release center Miroslav Raduljica on Friday, according to RealGM's Shams Charania. He is owed $1.5 million this coming season and has a partial guarantee on his salary for the following year.

The Clippers acquired Raduljica from the Milwaukee Bucks along with Carlos Delfino in exchange for Jared Dudley and a first-round pick earlier this week. Los Angeles is also expected to waive Delfino.

The idea here is to open up roster spots. The Clippers need some help on the inside, and it would appear they think they'll get someone who can contribute more than Raduljica can. They reportedly met with free agent big man Ekpe Udoh on Tuesday, and he could be perfect for them. There's also a chance forward Hedo Turkoglu could come back to Los Angeles next season.

Raduljica, 26, averaged 3.8 points and 2.3 rebounds in 9.7 minutes per game for the Bucks last year, shooting 54 percent from the field. He will compete for Serbia in the 2014 FIBA World Cup, which begins on Saturday.
