You might remember Milos Teodosic from this pass in Team USA’s win over Serbia:
Teodosic has long resisted the NBA.
Teodosic’s stance could change next summer, when his contract with CSKA Moscow ends.
Asked last week by ESPN if he still has NBA aspirations, Teodosic was non-committal, saying “that’s not up to me” and, when pressed, adding that it was his goal “a long time ago.”
But there is a belief in league circles that Teodosic will indeed explore his NBA options next summer.
Teodosic is an offensive dynamo. He’s a strong passer and shoots effectively from beyond the arc. He can be a bit turnover prone, but a team with a stale second unit could use him to create a spark.
He’s also a defensive minus, though. That probably won’t get better as he crosses 30 before becoming a free agent. His team must find a way to hide him on that end.
All told, Teodosic could play in the NBA – if he wants.
