NEW YORK (WFAN) – The Brooklyn Nets have reached an agreement in principle on a three-year deal with Bosnian forward Mirza Teletovic, The New York Times has reported.
Teletovic, 26, bought out his contract with his Spanish League team and expressed interest in playing in the NBA, specifically for the Cleveland Cavaliers or the Nets. He averaged 21.7 points in the ten Euroleague games he played in.
The deal is reportedly worth $15.675 million, and the Nets will use their full mid-level exception to sign the 6-foot-9, 250-pound Teletovic.
