Milos Teodosic's tenure with the Los Angeles Clippers may finish after just one season. The Los Angeles Clippers, in fact, are not planning to keep the Serbian point guard for the next season, a league source told Sportando. Teodosic has a player option, worth $6.3 mln, for the next season, that he can exercise until June 24, but his deal won't become fully guaranteed until July 15. If the Clippers will decide to waive him before July 15, they'd only have to pay him $2.1 mln. The Clippers are moving towards in the direction of parting ways with Teodosic, a league source told Sportando.
Teodosic missed 37 games last season, due to a foot injury, and his health is one of the main concerns behind Clippers' decision, a source told Sportando. The team would love to add a younger player in that position and fear that Teodosic's foot issue won't be fixed easily, sources told Sportando.
If Clippers will, in fact, waive Teodosic, there's a growing feeling around the league that he may consider a return in Europe, if the right offer will present itself, a source told Sportando. But interest from other NBA teams can't be ruled out at this point.
Teodosic averaged 9.5 points, 4.6 assists and 2.8 rebounds per game in his rookie season, shooting almost 42% from the field.
