New York Knicks Reportedly Show Interest in Mirza Teletovic

After leading the Euroleague in scoring this season, Mirza Teletovic may be taking his talents to North America.

According to Emiliano Carchia of Sportando, the Bosnian forward is drawing interest from the New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Phoenix Suns.

Teletovic, 26, is still under contract with Spain’s Caja Laboral for two more seasons, but his contract can be bought out, which would allow him to make the move to the NBA.

He’s considered a power forward, but he is one of the better three-point shooters in Europe, averaging 3.1 three-pointers per game on 43.1% shooting this season. Teletovic averaged 21.7 points and 6.0 rebounds during his season.

Where the Knicks run into trouble in an attempt to sign Teletovic is that the other three teams all have considerably much more cap space than the Knicks.

Luke Adams of Hoops Rumors reported earlier in the week that there was mutual interest between Teletovic and the Nets.
