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.

Amar'e Stoudemire Received Interest From Non-Title Contenders

Aug 9, 2016 7:04 PM

Amar'e Stoudemire chose to retire from the NBA to sign a two-year deal with Hapoel Jerusalem this offseason.

"I felt like I didn't want to just wait around and be the last guy on the roster, I don't want to end my career that way," Stoudemire told Reuters.

"I want to end my career on a good, healthy note so that's when I decided to retire (from the National Basketball Association)," he said after a news conference with Israeli media in Jerusalem.

Stoudemire discussed contracts but he "didn't want to play for a team that didn't have a chance for a title."

Stoudemire admitted it will be an adjustment playing in Israel and Europe just as it was coming out of high school to play in Phoenix. "But I want to make sure that I am going to play here while I still have good health," he said.
