Jon de la Presa, a Spanish hoops writer tweets Thursday that Europe's top scorer, Mirza Teletovic, may be interested in joining "Brooklyn." Teletovic, a 6'9" stretch forward plays for Caja Laboral in Spain. In Euroleague games this season, Teletovic averaged 21.7 ppg. He's 26 and Bosnian, born in Mostar, the same town that produced Zoran Planinic and Bojan Bogdanovic. The feeling, says a league source, is mutual.

Teletovic led Europe in minutes, points, field goals, three pointers made and attempted and was second in fouls drawn. He shot 43.6 percent from three with a career average of 40.2 percent. He averaged 6.0 rebounds. Teletovic, who's a free agent and thus has no buyout, is one of Europe's highest paid players, but makes less than $2 million.
