Former lottery pick Ekpe Udoh has been named MVP of the Euroleague Final Four and may be looking for a return to the NBA.

Udoh was originally drafted by the Golden State Warriors with the No. 6 overall pick in 2010. He also spent time with the Milwaukee Bucks (2012-14) and Los Angeles Clippers (2014-15).

He currently plays for Turkish club Fenerbahçe Istanbul -- which just won its first Euroleague crown Sunday.

Udoh, 30, is 6-foot-10. Along with being an energy player near the basket, he has gained a reputation as an excellent passer. (He recorded 12 assists in a Euroleague semifinal game.)

The Cleveland Cavaliers are among the teams expected to show interest this offseason if Udoh is willing to consider coming to the NBA at the right price.

Others who have expressed a stronger interest in Udoh recently include the Charlotte Hornets, Sacramento Kings and Denver Nuggets.
