After a pulmonary embolism, there is also fear of long-term damage to the heart. According to experts, Teletovic likely will undergo stress tests soon for that reason. Medical experts say even if his bloodwork is normal, Teletovic could be on blood thinners for six months to a year. Teletovic is a restricted free agent this summer, and the Knicks could have a lot of interest in him because of his shooting ability as a 6-foot-9 big man for the triangle. The Nets can match any offer. New York Post

Obviously with (Holiday) out, they need more point guard depth so, I kind of figured I had a pretty good chance (to get another 10-day contract). It's nice that they trust me enough to be around here a little bit longer. We got some injuries right now, so hopefully we can hold it down a little bit longer." New Orleans Times-Picayune
