In a press conference at a hotel in the Bosnian capital of Sarajevo, Mirza Teletovic told local reporters that he would like to stay in Brooklyn next season. “I like Brooklyn, people are great, I know the team and everyone, especially doctors, treated me great when all that happened. I really would like to stay in Brooklyn,” he said referring to the multiple blood clots found in in his lungs in January. “I know my team-mates and everything is really great. I do not know what will be, but I’ll know more in June when free agent market starts,” he told reporters, including Igor Marinovic of Sportske Novosti, who translated his answers for NetsDaily.

King also expressed a desire to bring back Alan Anderson, whom he called “Mr. Reliable,” and said the team will extend a qualifying offer to Mirza Teletovic to make him a restricted free agent. But with limited ways to improve this summer and another full year remaining until the Nets have the salary cap space to make significant changes, King has his work cut out for him. “It’s really incumbent on us, when you don’t have those picks, to be creative and come up with other ways to do it,” King said. “That’s a challenge, but it’s doable.”
Mirza Teletovic was ruled out of Game 1 just two days after being medically cleared to resume contact basketball. The 29-year-old, who had been treated with blood thinners until recently because of clots in his lungs, traveled with the Nets to Atlanta but simply didn’t have enough practices under his belt, according to Hollins. “The guy’s been off for three months,” the coach said. “He’s had two practices. You can’t expect a guy to come out and play.”
