credit: nydailynews.com The Brooklyn Nets took a little bit of a gamble this off season signing an international player, Mirza Teletovic, that nobody quite knew how to project to the NBA. He was quite the player in Europe, but has yet to really find a steady role with the Nets. With international players, you always have to wonder if they will leave the NBA if things don’t work out right away. It makes sense; they are already comfortable with the European playing style, and can play a star role as opposed to riding the bench. However, Mirza Teletovic has no plans of leaving the Brooklyn Nets after this season. And it sounds like he’s determined to leave his imprint in the NBA. Via NY Daily News: Mirza Teletovic carved out quite a career in Europe as a top scorer and international star, waiting until he was 27 to jump to the NBA and fall out of the Nets’ rotation. Despite his position near the end of Brooklyn’s bench, the Bosnian said Wednesday he has no intention of returning overseas.  “No,” he said flatly about going back to Europe, where Teletovic was last season’s leading scorer of the Euroleague. “Never going to happen. “I’m going to prove some stuff.” This could be good news for the Nets if they can find a way to maximize Teletovic’s potential. Stretch big men are a hot commodity in this league, and he could ultimately prove to be a pretty nice compliment to center Brook Lopez. Additionally, Teletovic is under contract at a reasonable rate over the next couple of seasons. -Mark Evans, Assistant Manager/Editor of Content Follow us on Twitter The post Mirza Teletovic Staying With Nets appeared first on Pass The Pill - Kings of Hoops.
