Teletovic, who played in EuroLeague with Baskonia from 2006 to 2012 before moving to the NBA, was also asked to comment on Nikola Mirotic’s stunning decision to return to Europe by signing with Barcelona. “There will be more and more players who will come back,” Teletovic mentioned. “I don’t understand how young people decide to go because you know that the first three years you will stay on the bench or in the G League.”
Albert Nahmad: Bucks, by swapping John Henson and Matt Dellavedova for George Hill and Jason Smith, will end up $5.2M below the tax line this season (assuming Mirza Teletovic relief) and clear $18M off their cap sheet (if they waive Hill, who has a $1M guarantee, by 7/1/19) for 2019-20.

Albert Nahmad: The Bucks can now officially apply to the NBA to have Mirza Teletovic’s $3.5M dead-money cap charges for 2018-19, 2019-20 and 2020-21 removed from their cap sheet via the long-term injury exclusion, due to the risks associated with his past pulmonary emboli. The Bucks are currently $5.2M below the luxury tax threshold for 2018-19. If they are awarded cap relief from Mirza Teletovic’s $3.5M dead-money cap charge via the long-term injury exclusion, it’ll push them $8.7M below. The Bucks currently have 16 players on standard NBA contracts, one more than the normal limit because Jodie Meeks is on the Suspended List through 11/24. After that, they’ll need to get back down to 15 players by either waiving or trading either him or someone else.
Antetokounmpo bought the River Hills mansion from fellow National Basketball Assocation player Mirza Teletovic, and his wife, Maja, according to state property records posted online Friday. Teletovic, a former Milwaukee Buck, retired from basketball in September because of health issues. He is now president of the Bosnian Basketball Federation. Antetokounmpo’s new place, with its purchase price of $1.8 million, sounds nice. “Beyond the sweeping tree lined driveway stands a nearly new 5 bedroom, 7.5 bath custom residence,” according to a listing at Realtor.com.

Jon Horst: We want to express our appreciation to Mirza in his retirement from the NBA and congratulate him on a wonderful playing career. We are happy that he is remaining in the game as president of the Bosnian Basketball Federation, where his knowledge of the sport and his leadership will enable him to have a great impact in his new role. All the best to Mirza and his family.

The Bucks and Teletovic came to the decision that it was best to part ways, with Milwaukee utilizing his roster spot on Jennings’ 10-day contract. “We’ve been working very much in connection with each other,” Horst said. “We had and will continue to have a great existing relationship with Mirza and his representation. We wish him the best and he knows he has the organization’s full support and the opportunity to be around the organization as much as he wants because of our relationship going forward. We love him, we love his family, we wish them well and we’re here to support him in any way we can.”

The Mirza Teletovic $10.5M 2018-19 salary will count against the cap until November 7. The early November date is when Teletovic last played in an NBA game and when Milwaukee can first apply to have his salary removed. The potential cap relief will help Milwaukee stay under the $121M luxury tax next season. The Bucks, not including Teletovic have $97M in salary and will have a big decision with restricted free agent Jabari Parker. Milwaukee would not have been under the cap this summer even if they received cap relief at the time of the waiver. However, with the Teletovic money still counting, Milwaukee could face hard cap restrictions if they elect to use the full $8.6M mid-level exception.

Matt Velazquez: Gery Woelfel told @1057FMTheFan: “My sources tell me Mirza Teletovic’s career is over.” Teletovic, who hasn’t published a tweet of his own since September, took the time to chime in with a response.

Mirza Teletovic underwent surgery to repair cartilage in his left knee before learning a short time later he would be sidelined indefinitely with pulmonary embolism in both lungs. According to Bucks officials, he was to rest for 10 days, which was until Dec. 24, before having a supervised rehabilitation. But two sources close to the Bucks claim Teletovic won’t be returning anytime soon. They believe the 6-foot-9 forward will be sidelined for at least three more months – or until late in the regular season. At that point, it could be difficult for Teletovic to be in game shape for the playoffs, if the highly erratic Bucks would make them.
The Bucks are probably going to be in the market to fill a need equally as important: a shooter – especially with Mirza Teletovic’s future up in the air. Teletovic is sidelined indefinitely with blood clots in both of his lungs. “They (the Bucks) are a pretty good team,’’ said a veteran NBA advanced scout, who saw the Bucks up close and personal in recent weeks. “They can be really good on defense with their length, and they attack the basket pretty well on offense with Giannis (Antetokounmpo) and they have some good mid-range shooters like (Kris) Middleton and (Tony) Snell. “They just don’t have outside shooters. I see that as their biggest weakness.’’

Milwaukee Bucks forward Mirza Teletovic will be sidelined as a result of pulmonary emboli in both lungs. Teletovic’s condition was discovered when consulting with Bucks team physicians after he experienced unusual fatigue earlier this week. Following a 10-day rest period, Teletovic will begin his supervised rehabilitation program and updates on his condition will be provided when appropriate.

What Walsh witnessed earlier that night was Mirza Teletovic, a forward with Brooklyn, struggling to breathe during a game and pleading for help. By the time they reached the hospital, Teletovic had calmed and the symptoms subsided. But Walsh wasn’t satisfied with the non-diagnosis. “My gut told me he’s not OK,” Walsh said. “I know the ER doctor is saying he’s OK, but something’s not right. So I said, ‘If they don’t want to do a CT, I’m going somewhere else to get one.'”
Walsh’s persistence resulted in that CT scan, which uncovered multiple blood clots in Teletovic’s lungs. Under those conditions, a plane ride to the next game could’ve hastened a pulmonary embolism. Instead, Teletovic was administered blood thinners, the clots dissolved, and he’s currently enjoying his sixth season in the NBA. “He could have gotten on the plane and he could have actually died,” former Nets coach Lionel Hollins said.
During the first week of the team’s training camp, Teletovic has been wearing protective glasses and he expects to wear them throughout the season. The 6-foot-9 sharpshooting forward, who wore contacts while playing in the past due to astigmatismin both eyes, is sporting eyewear following corrective Lasik surgery, which he underwent earlier this month — something he’s long planned on doing and just recently found the time.
