The Minnesota Timberwolves have agreed to trade forward Chase Budinger to the Indiana Pacers, according to Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Wojnarowski reports the Wolves would receive forward Damjan Rudez in return.

The 6'7" Budinger, 27, averaged 6.8 points and three rebounds in 67 games for the Timberwolves last season. 

Rudez, 29, averaged 4.8 points in 15.4 minutes per game last season as a rookie for the Pacers. The 6'10" Croatian forward signed a three-year deal last offseason to come over to the NBA from CAI Zaragoza of Spain.
