Beno Udrih More “At Home” with Magic

Udrih said he was thrilled that the Milwaukee Bucks included him in the trade that also sentTobias Harris and Doron Lamb to the Orlando Magic for J.J. Redick, Gustavo Ayón and Ish Smith.
In Milwaukee, Udrih’s playing time was limited because point guard Brandon Jennings and shooting guardMonta Ellis were averaging about 37 minutes per game.
In Orlando, Udrih already has a comfort level with coach Jacque Vaughn, who was his teammate in 2006-07 with the San Antonio Spurs.
“I’ve been here three days, and I’ve already felt more at home than I did in Milwaukee for a year and a half,” Udrih said Monday.
“It was just a bad situation there. I’m a professional and I’m a man, so I like to be told straight-up what they expect from me. So, in Milwaukee, that never happened. They were saying, ‘Yeah, yeah, we know. We’ve got to play you a little bit more.’ But it never happened. So when I did get into the game I didn’t know what they actually wanted to do, so I was just trying to find it myself, and I never did.”
“I wanted a change. I wanted a new start, so I’m really happy to be here. I know Jacque and J.B. [James Borrego], the assistant coach. It’s just a really exciting moment for me and my wife.”
