"Not Going to NBA to Waste Time"

cskabasket.com

Mirza Teletovic, in an interview with the writer for a Slovenian basketball site, left no doubt as to why he decided to leave Europe, at considerable expense, for Brooklyn. "I'm not going to the NBA to waste my time, but to get the (championships)."

Teletovic is paying nearly $2 million of his own money to buy out his contract with Caja Laboral of Spain and was willing to take another $2 million a year pay cut so the Nets could pursue other players. He felt now is the time to make the leap.

"For two or three years I have delayed this decision," the 6'9" forward said. "Now the Brooklyn club is bringing me in. A lot of money has been invested in the composition of the team, I think it will be interesting."
