Patrick Beverley took the long road to the NBA, playing for Olympiacos before joining the Rockets. Beverley now plays for the Clippers, who just signed European star Milos Teodosic – whom Beverley backed up in Greece and played against in Russia.
Beverley suddenly needs a new hotel alias on the road.
“I used Milos Teodosic” he confessed to ESPN on Thursday.
In the aftermath of Chris Paul, the Clippers have assembled several interchangeable guards: Beverley, Teodosic, Lou Williams and Austin Rivers. It will be fun to watch Doc Rivers experiment with different combinations.
But that nugget has made this my favorite subplot of the offseason.
