Teletovic In Multi-Year Deal With Nets?

A leading Spanish basketball blog reports Tuesday that Mirza Teletovic, the 6'9" Bosnian stretch forward, has a multi-year agreement in place with the Nets. The site, Encestando, did not disclose how much money Teletovic will earn in the NBA. He recently reached an agreement to buy out his Spanish League club, Caja Laboral, for $2.5 million.

"It’s over now, Mirza Teletovic's time on stage in the ACB," reports Javier Maestro. ACB is the acronym for the Spanish League. "The Bosnian player has already reached an agreement with the Brooklyn Nets to play in the NBA and the coming years. Barcelona tried a couple of weeks to prevent his departure, but ... it seems that its march to the American League was his choice."

The Nets along with the Cavaliers were identified as Teletovic's top choice last week, but Encestando adds, "Although Cleveland Cavaliers had also been interested in the Bosnian power forward, the Nets are his next destination." However, another respected European hoops blogger, Emiliano Carchia ‏of SportandoBasket, tweets that it is "not true" and Stefan Bondy quotes Teletovic's agent as saying no deal is in place with the Nets.

The Nets are still hoping to bring Bojan Bogdanovic over next season as well, suggesting he would be a lottery choice if he was in this year's draft. Teletovic and Bogdanovic are both natives of Mostar, Bosnia.
