Milos Teodosic Rumors
“Each player, whether he likes to admit it or not, has the desire to be in the NBA. To be part of it. I think that the quality of the NBA has quite fallen in the last five to ten years, but it is still the best league in the world. And I still have the desire to try myself out there. Of course, not anywhere and not in any way. If I left Europe for the NBA, it would be only for a situation where I knew I’ll be there to play”, Milos Teodosic said in the Serbian edition of VICE.
When asked which club would be at the top of his preferences, Milos Teodosic picked two teams for some very specific reasons. “The San Antonio Sprus, since it is a team that has developed a style close to the so called ‘European’ basketball. The plays have a lot of extra passes etc. Also the Utah Jazz. Their coach Quin Snyder is a former assistant to Ettore Messina (in 2012/2013 CSKA Moscow) and someone with a phenomenal attitude. He is a great man, one of the most promising coaches in USA right now. And he really knows me well. So I think I’d be a very good fit there, knowing him and his system of work. Also the composition of the Jazz is quite solid, they have a lot of young and athletic players”.

Trajan Langdon, who played for CSKA Moscow, reportedly was scouting in Europe last month and may have checked on his old club, which is in the Euroleague’s final four next weekend behind a pair of intriguing 6-foot-5 guards.
Serb Milos Teodosic, 28, is a deft passer and Europe’s top point guard. He has a year left on a $2.5 million deal, which doesn’t have an NBA out. Scoring combo-guard Nando de Colo, who played 97 games for the Spurs while Marks and Langdon were in San Antonio’s front office, is a free agent. On Friday CSKA Moscow plays Lokomotiv Kuban, led by All-Euroleague first-teamer Malcolm Delaney, who wants to play in the NBA. Ex-Knick Sergio Rodriguez, who makes $2.6 million at Real Madrid, bears watching as well.
Like every summer the rumors about CSKA are raging. One of them is about Milos Teodosic and his departure from the team from Moscow. A lot has been heard and it has even been written that he’s a breath away from a deal with Fenerbahce. The truth is that so far nothing has happened and there is no indication at all that CSKA is going to cut off the Serbian guard and ask him to break their contract. Milos Teodosic has a contract with CSKA until the summer of 2017, there is no release clause from the side of the player, nor the side of the team, not even an NBA Out. So it seems, then, that despite the “easy” rumors, the 28 year old playmaker will continue with the club for a 5th season.
