Serbia's Milos Teodosic reportedly wants $3 million to make jump to NBA

Sunday September 14th, 2014

Serbian point guard Milos Teodosic, whose team squares off against the U.S. in the FIBA World Cup final on Sunday, will make the jump to the NBA only if he gets a deal of at least $3 million, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

The 27-year-old could play in the NBA if he wants, but he won't budge for anything less than a contract of $3 million annually, according to Stein.

The Grizzlies were reportedly the last team to show interest in him, as Stein reports that Memphis lobbied hard for him last summer but apparently both sides were unable to come to an agreement.
