In his final season with the Wildcats in 2009, Budinger earned First Team All-Pac-10 honors.

Selected 44th overall in the 2009 NBA Draft, Budinger enjoyed a seven-year NBA career with the Houston Rockets (2009-12), Minnesota Timberwolves (2012-15), Indiana Pacers (2015-16), and Phoenix Suns (2016). His career averages were 7.9 points per game, 1.2 assists, and three rebounds.
