The Clippers have agreed to terms with Serbian point guard, and European legend Milos Teodosic on a 2-year, $12.4 million dollar contract. Teodosic is well known in the European basketball circles as a generationally gifted passer, and last played for CSKA Moscow last season.
In L.A. Teodosic will be reunited with Patrick Beverley, with whom he played in Greece. Beverley had high praise for the Euro. He also said he had been using Teodosic’s name as an alias on road trips, so he can’t do that anymore.
Patrick Beverley on Teodosic: “He might be the best passer in the NBA right now.” PBev needs to change hotel alias: “I used Milos Teodosic!”

Teodosic won’t be able to replace Chris Paul’s production, but he’ll be an entertaining watch. Even though he looks like Vlade Divac, he passes like Magic Johnson. The 30-year old won’t be great on the defensive end, but he’ll be a regular on the NBA plays of the week.
