Clippers will bring back Teodosic

The Los Angeles Clippers like point guard Milos Teodosic and will bring him back for the 2018-19 season, according to a report from Brad Turner of the LA Times.

Teodosic signed a two-year, $12.3 million deal with the Clippers in 2017. He opted into his player option worth $6.3 million for next season.

In 45 games this past season, Teodosic averaged 9.5 points, 2.8 rebounds and 4.6 assists, shooting 41.9 percent from the field and 37.9 percent from three. He missed 37 games due to a lingering foot injury.

The Clippers likely won’t be contenders for the playoffs in a rugged Western Conference. The team drafted guards Shai GilgeousAlexander and Jerome Robinson in the 2018 NBA draft.
