Denver Nuggets are reportedly interested in signing international basketball’s most sought-after player Milos Teodosic when his contract with current club CSKA Moscow runs out in the summer.

San Antonio Spurs and Utah Jazz have also expressed great interest in the talented point guard, who has been with CSKA Moscow since 2011 but Denver would seem to be a better fit for Teodosic with a view for solid minutes and an easier settling period with his Olympic team-mate Nikola Jokic already established there.

Serbian media outlet Novosti, who broke the news have reported that Denver are already preparing a multi-year deal for Teodosic to keep him away from San Antonio, whose assistant Ettore Messina coached the CSKA guard between 2012 and 2014.

For loyal CSKA Moscow supporters, and EuroLeague fans in general, it would be a huge blow to see one of the most exciting products make what is expected to be the ‘predicted’ jump to the NBA when Teodosic’s contract with the Muscovites runs out on July 1, but ultimately for the player himself, who has played in the EuroLeague for ten years now, the move is not a certainty just yet.

Since winning his first EuroLeague title in seven attempts last May, Teodosic has picked up where he left off and has regularly wowed crowds with his accurate, sometimes flashy passing abilities, terrific, all-round court vision and deadly shooting.

The Serbian is currently fourth in the EuroLeague for points with an average of 16.4 a game along with a league-leading 7.4 assists but the 29-year-old has missed six games this season through injury and at times has looked a little off the pace upon his return to the line-up.
