It’s not been a secret that Milos Teodosic has the NBA on his radar and teams within the NBA are certainly plenty familiar with him. After his impressive displays at the 2014 FIBA World Cup and, moreover, from last summer’s Olympics in Rio, it was only a matter of time before the talk got a little more serious.
The report (with translations via Sportando) was the first time we’ve really heard some solid words from Teodosic on his NBA ambitions.
“I will go to the NBA for sure, but I still don’t know when, in which club and on what terms. We’ll see. CSKA Moscow certainly has an advantage in the negotiations of a new contract…Offers from Grizzlies, Jazz, Spurs or Rockets? I did not get any offers from them. I don’t know who said that…For me this is an error. I like to play and I don’t like to sit on the bench and I would not agree on any contract if I have to sit on the bench. This is my condition for going to the NBA.”
