Recently, on his blog, the German center announced his intention to return to the Euroleague to play out the second season of his four-year contract with Caja Laboral. “I am in contact with Thunder GM Sam Presti and I often speak on phone with Jonny Rogers, who lives in Barcelona and he is a scout for the Thunder in Europe,” Pleiss wrote in the post. “They look at me each game and they are very satisfied for my performances. But I don't want to be misunderstood: I think to the NBA in the medium term and I don't want to talk too much about it. After this season I have three more years on my contract with Baskonia and I will stay at least next season. I feel the confidence of coach Zan Tabak. I know I can become a better player in Vitoria, which is crucial for me.” Oklahoman

In some ways, Teletovic has typified the Nets' early-season growing pains. He is still figuring things out. Now, he appears in danger of becoming a forgotten man on coach Avery Johnson's bench. Teletovic didn't make his way onto the court until the fourth quarter of Friday night's 107-68 rout of the Orlando Magic. He finished with five points on 2-of-4 shooting. "Talking to other European players who came here for their first year, they told me it's a process," said Teletovic, who spent the past six seasons with Caja Laboral of the Spanish League. "You have to get used to it. It's not only basketball; it's life around basketball. It'll take time. But I'm confident." Wall Street Journal
