Jared Dudley: Moving from Clippers to rebuilding Bucks 'doesn't matter'
The Clippers advanced to the Western Conference semifinals last season, while the Bucks finished with the worst record in the NBA at 15-67.
"Going from a contender to a team that's rebuilding, to me that really doesn't matter," Dudley said to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "As a professional, you've got to come in with the right mind-set and play in the right way. "The way I've conducted myself throughout the league, that will be the same thing here. This team has a lot going good for them with Jabari Parker coming in here and what he can potentially do for this franchise. That's a huge upside."
Dudley averaged 6.9 points and 2.2 rebounds in his only season with the Clippers while dealing with nagging knee injuries.
The Bucks selected Parker with the No. 2 pick in this year's draft and hired former Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd to replace Larry Drew.
