In his NBA debut, Serbian guard Milos Teodosic proved that his overseas highlight passes were not a YouTube mirage. The 30-year-old made a name for himself in the Euroleague with CSKA Moscow as one of the best passers in all of basketball.
This past summer, Teodosic decided to jump to the NBA, signing a two-year, $12 million deal with the Los Angeles Clippers, effectively stepping into the void created when Chris Paul, was shipped to the Rockets.
Teodosic came off the bench and played just 20 minutes for the Clippers in their preseason opener, but that didn’t prevent him from leaving his stamp on the game. He had 8 assists in those 20 minutes, many of them leaving fans wondering how he did that.
Here is a collection of his highlights from his first preseason game against the Toronto Raptors.
Looks like Lob City will be open for business this season.
Though it was far from a perfect game for Teodosic, as he finished with 1 point on 0-of-5 shooting in his 20 minutes.
He might be worth a look if you have any interest in betting an NBA ROTY futures, as far as his second game he threw this ridiculous underhanded pass.

Granted this is all preseason, who knows what will happen when the games actually matter so I understand any skepticism. If you're questioning his potential, check out this highlight mix from his Euroleague days.
