Virtus Bologna lands a star in Teodosic

Six-time All-EuroLeague guard and 2010 EuroLeague MVP Milos Teodosic will make his return to European basketball after signing a three-year deal with Italian side Segafredo Virtus Bologna, the club announced late Saturday. In doing so, Teodosic (1.95 meters, 32 years old) wil compete in the 7DAYS EuroCup this season for the first time since 2006-07, when he played for FMP Belgrade. He last played for Los Angeles Clippers in the NBA, where he averaged 8.0 points and 4.0 assists over 60 games during the past two seasons.

Teodosic has been among the biggest stars in European basketball this century. He is ranked second on the EuroLeague's all-time charts in three-pointers made with 471. Teodosic is also fourth on the career charts in assists (1,126), seventh in scoring (2,807) and 10th in free throws made (570). He began his professional career with FMP in his native Serbia and played one season at Borac Cacak before heading abroad in 2007 to play for Olympiacos Piraeus. Teodosic spent four seasons with the Reds and helped the team reach two Final Fours before signing with CSKA Moscow, where he reached six Final Fours in as many seasons and won the 2016 EuroLeague crown. His six All-EuroLeague nods - including three first-team selections - are third-most in EuroLeague history. Teodosic’s trophy case includes two Russian League titles, six VTB United League triumphs and two Greek Cups. A long-time member of the Serbian national team, he has won silver medals at the Basketball World Cup (2014), Olympic Games (2016) and EuroBasket (2009).
