Milos Teodosic is negotiating a three-year, $24 million deal with the L.A. Clippers, according to Eurohoops sources.
The 30-year-old Serbian guard who had also been a potential target for the Chicago Bulls and the Minnesota Timberwolves, looks ready to leave Europe and make the NBA jump for the first time in his career, as he said himself many times. And the Clippers are rather attracted to his talents.
However, the upcoming meeting of the club with Derrick Rose will also be a factor in the negotiations with Teodosic. So today it’s going to be a long and big day regarding the Serbian wizard’s future.
A EuroLeague veteran plus champion in 2016 with CSKA Moscow, carrying a decade of experience in the top basketball level outside of the NBA, Teodosic comes from one highly productive season. He averaged 16.8 points, 6.8 assists and 2.1 rebounds per game in EL, helping CSKA Moscow reach the Final Four where he scored a team-high 23 points in the semifinal loss by Olympiacos.
With the Serbian national team, Teodosic has been an Olympic Games (2016), World Cup (2014) and EuroBasket (2009) silver medalist.
