Report: Mirza Teletovic agrees to one-year, $5.5 million deal with Phoenix Suns
Earlier on Thursday, the Nets withdrew their qualifying offer for Bosnian forward Mirza Teletovic, making him an unrestricted free agent. Teletovic wasted no time in agreeing to a one-year, $5.5 million deal with the Suns, according to NBA.com’s David Aldridge:

It was always a long shot that the Nets would be able to keep Teletovic, given their luxury tax situation. But they’ll miss his size and shooting ability, which will be a nice fit in Phoenix.
