Milos Teodosic Rumors
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.
Fenerbahce, who confirmed Zeljko Obradovic for two more seasons and is trying to keep Nemanja Bjelica, has as main goal for the summer to sign a first class point guard. Two are the players in Fenerbahce wishlist: Nick Calathes and Milos Teodosic.
FIBA Europe announced Player of the Year candidates. There are 10 players candidates for the award: Alessandro Gentile, Bogdan Bogdanovic, Boris Diaw, Dirk Nowitzki, Goran Dragic, Jonas Valanciunas, Milos Teodosic, Pau Gasol, Sergio Rodriguez, Tony Parker.
Eurohoops asked the Serbian star about the posibility of trying out the NBA and he answered smiling: “I don’t know. I signed a new contract this summer with CSKA Moscow and I will be 30 years old when it ends after three years. At this point, it may be too late to try something like this”.
Marc Stein: But Teodosic ultimately spurned NBA to stay in Europe, Bodiroga-style, signing three-year deal w/CSKA Moscow. Still has lots of fans in NBA

Agent of Milos Teodosic said that Milos Teodosic rejected the Memphis Grizzlies’ offer because he wants to win the Euroleague with CSKA Moscow, but he added that his client will obviously look to other options if CSKA decides that he does not fit into the plans of the team.
After failing to qualify for the Euroleague Final Four Barcelona is already thinking about the next season. According to various sources, current Euroleague title holders are showing serious interest in Milos Teodosic of Olympiacos. Serbian guard could strengthen Barca’s backcourt next season. His addition would be even more beneficial if Ricky Rubio finally decides to move to NBA.
Los Angeles Lakers forward Gasol, who skipped the worlds in Turkey, won the European basketball governing body’s award the past two years. Gasol got the most votes from an expert panel, but Teodosic won by a large margin in fan voting. Previous winners include Dirk Nowitzki in 2005 and Andrei Kirilenko in 2007.

Teodosic then stepped back as the other Serbian players spread out wide, dribbling the clock down as he stood 28 feet away from the basket. Garbajosa played off him, and with five seconds left, Teodosic let it fly. And when his straightaway 3-pointer went through the net with 3.1 seconds left, Serbia had a 92-89 victory that dethroned the defending world champions. “In the timeout, we decided we would only shoot a long 3-pointer. If we miss, it’s overtime,” said Serbian coach Dusan Ivkovic, whose team avenged a defeat against Spain in the gold medal-game of the 2009 EuroBasket tournament in Poland.
