Teodosic has been one of the best and most exciting talents at the point guard position in all of Europe for the past couple of years. He averaged 16.1 points and 6.8 assists per game while playing for Russian giant CSKA Moscow this past season, drawing plenty of eyes from NBA scouts.
A fantastic playmaker and level-headed leader on the floor, Teodosic shot 38.1 percent from beyond the arc while registering a 56.4 effective field goal percentage.
Teodosic and former NBA guard Nando De Colo, who led the way with 19.1 points per game, helped CSKA reach the Final Four of the Euroleague — a feat that didn’t go past the eyes of many international scouting personnel.
At 6-foot-5 and 196 pounds, Teodosic first opened the eyes of many at the world level while playing for the Serbian national team and coming within three points of sending an undefeated Team USA to overtime in their third game of group play.
The savvy floor general missed the potential game-tying shot, but left a lasting impression due to his highly-competitive motor and his flair and decision-making with the ball.
The Clippers now have a quality, experienced backup point guard that is seasoned in the sport and brings his own twist to the game. At 30 years old, the veteran point man is likely to share minutes with the recently-acquired Patrick Beverley, while Austin Rivers plays off the ball.
Teodosic is expected to compete for the starting point guard position, according to beat writer Bill Oram of SoCalNewsGroup.
