Report: Teodosic unlikely to return to Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers are not expected to bring back point guard Milos Teodosic for the 2018-19 season, according to a report from Sportando.

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

If the Clippers decide to waive Teodosic before July 15, they’d only have to pay him $2.1 million. Los Angeles is leaning towards parting ways with Teodosic.

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.

Per the report, the Clippers are looking to get younger at the point guard position. Teodosic is 31-years-old and the Clippers aren’t confident he can play all 82 games.

The Clippers own the 12th and 13th pick in the 2018 NBA draft. Expect them to select a point guard with one of those picks.
