One of the best forwards and most lethal perimeter shooters in all of Europe, Teletovic is coming off a rookie NBA season that turned into new territory for him. A lot was different across the Atlantic, where big minutes were rare and far between for one of Europe's top clutch performers. After such a season, Teletovic is eager more than ever to be back in his old role with the national team where he carries a heavy load on his shoulders. Dangerous when left open, or with a hand right in his face, Teletovic destroys opponents with a devastating range. He is far from a one-dimensional player however, as he is big and physical to dominate around the basket, and athletic to drive through the paint for a big dunk. Last summer in the Qualification Round he hurt opposing defences with an average of 24.3 points, and this time around brings experience of previous EuroBasket action, having played in the 2005 and 2011 tournaments. Arriving fresh and highly motivated, Teletovic is set to be the player Bosnia and Herzegovina expects and needs to take them to unprecedented heights.
