Andres Nocioni, the Argentine star who played eight years in the NBA before joining Caja Laboral last season, offered high praise for his Spanish League teammate Mirza Teletovic Tuesday. Nocioni, who played small forward to Teletovic's power forward, told SportSport Bosnia he's seen "just a couple of shooters at the same level as Teletovic."

"I'm happy for Mirza since joining the NBA is the pinnacle in the career of every basketball player. However, I regret that we will no longer be teammates because he is a fantastic basketball player and person," Nocioni said, adding:

"Mirza will succeed with the Nets, because he definitely has the quality to play at the highest level. He's fast and terribly agile for his height, and can manage non-American NBA basketball players. He is also strong and has a good shot. "In my career I have only seen a couple of shooters who are on the same level as Teletovic." The Bosnian star leads his national team in the FIBA Eurobasket Qualifying Round Wednesday.
