Of late, there had also been talk the Chicago Bulls and Minnesota Timberwolves were interested in Teodosic. He will join a Clippers lineup that traded away point guard Chris Paul in the offseason to the Houston Rockets (which netted former Teodosic teammate Patrick Beverley in return).
Milos Teodosic will play again along with Patrick Beverley. They were teammates in Olympiacos years ago— Sportando (@Sportando) July 6, 2017
