Clippers sign point guard Milos Teodosic

July 10, 2017

The Los Angeles Clippers may no longer have Chris Paul running the ship, but they certainly brought in an intriguing replacement, as the team announced that it has signed Serbian guard Milos Teodosic. He joins the Clippers after a decorated 13-year international career in Serbia, Greece, and Russia.  Other outlets have reported the deal is for two years at $12.3 million.

A quick view of any highlight reel will show that Teodosic has superior court vision and is an elite passer who can make others around him better.  The 2010 EuroLeague MVP and FIBA Player of the Year, he has been named to the All-EuroLeague First Team three times (2010, 2015 & 2016) and the All-EuroLeague Second Team three times (2012, 2013 & 2017).

Teodosic, 6’5”, 195 pounds, began his professional career in 2004-05 at age 17 with Serbian club FMP Železnik. He spent the 2005-06 season on loan to Borac Čačak (Serbia) before rejoining FMP Železnik for the 2006-07 campaign. Teodosic joined Olympiacos B.C. of the Greek League in 2007, and played four seasons for the club before joining CSKA Moscow of the Russian League in 2011, where he led the team to the 2016 EuroLeague Championship.

Teodosic, 30, has competed for the Serbian senior and junior national basketball teams since 2003. He led Serbia to a silver medal at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio De Janeiro, as well as silver medal showings at the 2009 EuroBasket Tournament and the 2014 FIBA World Cup.
