Iffe Lundberg appeared in four NBA games and registered 3.3 points, 2.8 assists, and 1.8 rebounds in 11 minutes. He became the first-ever Danish player to play in the NBA and worked alongside the likes of Chris Paul and Devin Booker.
Prior to CSKA and the Suns, Lundberg had stints in Denmark, Spain and Poland. He joined CSKA after a breakout 2020-21 season with Zielona Gora. Lundberg will meet two former teammates in Daniel Hackett and Tornike Shengelia, who also joined Bologna.
