Just a few days after reports circulated surrounding interest in Mirza Teletovic, a 6-foot-9-inch power forward out of Bosnia, the agent of the recently bought-out big man has indicates that his client will likely sign with either the Brooklyn Nets or Cleveland Cavaliers for the 2012-13 season.

Teletovic,26, was the Euroleague’s top regular season scorer, averaging 21.7 points for Vitoria, hitting 3.1 three-point field goals per game (43.1 percent). A traditional volume-type player, the Bosnian’s big weekness to this point has been his defense as he has largely been a perimeter player, averaging only 6.0 rebounds per contest and occasionally being forced out of the paint by larger forwards.

A bit of an undersized front-court player, the 240-pount Teletovic would likely assume the “stretch-four” role in Cleveland, ocassionally slotting down to the small forward when not confronted with a dynamic player opposite him due to the potential for defensive struggles.
