The Final Dos-ic
After all that, you probably thought the Clips would have to be done. The amount of talent brought in was simply too much to fathom, and there had to be almost no money left to spend. The roster was essentially completed, anyway.
However, if you thought any of that, you’d be mistaken.
The Clippers then pulled off an incredible deal that brought in Milos Teodosic from overseas, signing him for two years at $12.3 million. If you don’t know much about his game, watch below. You’ll be amazed.
Now, let’s imagine all of those passes being delivered to the likes of DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin.
Teodosic is a EuroLeague MVP and champion, and in 2016 he was voted the world’s best player that wasn’t in the NBA by NBA coaches. He also led the Serbian National Team to the Gold Medal match in the 2016 Rio Olympics against Team USA, where he and his team lost by a mere three points, 94-91. And remember, he was going against the very best players that the NBA had to offer.
He’ll likely start over Beverley this season, which should be a welcome move for Clippers fans. Teodosic brings unbelievable court vision and great shooting , and will surely make the starters play their very best basketball.
So, yeah. We lost Chris Paul, Jamal Crawford, and Diamond Stone. But in return, we got what could be one of the best LA Clippers’ teams to ever grace the court. So, Doc Rivers is right. Don’t go thinking we’re Finals-bound just yet. Rather, in a few years, you better believe that we’ll be in the conversation.
