Grizzlies Tried To Sign Milos Teodosic In 2013

Aug 15, 2016 2:39 PM

The Memphis Grizzlies attempted to sign Milos Teodosic in the summer of 2013. 

The Grizzlies offered Teodosic a two-year deal in the $5 million range in an attempt to bring him to the NBA.

Teodosic elected to sign a contract instead with CSKA Moscow that has one more season remaining. His current deal has no NBA outs, so the summer of 2017 is the earliest that Teodosic would be a free agent. Teodosic figures to receive interest from the NBA when he becomes a free agent.

"As good a player, as good a guard, as there is in Europe," Team USA coach Mike Krzyzewski said.
