Five NBA Teams Vying for Teletovic

El Correo of Spain reports that five NBA teams, including the Nets, are interested in bringing Mirza Teletovic to the U.S.,

However, like Bojan Bogdanovic, he has a significant buyout and Caja Laboral, his Spanish team, might want as much as $2.5 million (2 million euros) in compensation.

"Mirza Teletovic's contract won't expire until June 2014, but he is on the top of the list of players that could be sold this summer," writes Carlos Perez Arriilucea of the 6'9" stretch forward. "His quality is beyond any doubt, being one of the top players in Europe in his position, but he could be an interesting player for the voracious NBA market. According to sources close to the player, up to five franchises have approached Mirza Teletovic for a possible signing."

Perez Arrilucea adds that Teletovic said Saturday that "for now" he plans to be in Vitoria, Spain, home of Caja, next season but an NBA team might change that situation.
