Brooklyn Nets sign Bosnian Mirza Teletovic

The Nets have reached an agreement to sign Bosnian forward Mirza Teletovic. The details of the signing as being reported by Chad Ford is the Nets will use the non-taxpayer midlevel (three years, $15.675M) to sign him.

Teletovic is a sweet shooting stretch-four and if put into a lineup with Williams, Johnson, Wallace and Lopez, the Nets will have an interesting offensive mix with multiple guys able to stretch the floor and attack the basket.

A couple weeks ago we asked Sam Meyerkopf of Euroleague Adventures to provide info on Teletovic. Here is a brief description:

Mirza Teletovic has been a premier offensive player in Europe the past couple seasons. At 26 years old, he has played with Caja Laboral in the Euroleague and Spanish League for six years. This season represented the largest leap he’s taken in his game. Known for someone who could shoot his team in and out of games, Teletovic expanded his offense arsenal this season with a more defined post up game and a willingness to take people off the bounce. At the end of the Euroleague regular season he was leading the league in scoring at 21.7 points a game. He also finished his year in the Spanish League on the All-ACB First Team. With a more mature game and mindset, Teletovic showed us this season that his offensive game is ready for the NBA.
