Mirza Teletovic made seven 3-pointers against the Kings on Saturday, finishing with 22 points, one assist and one block.
It was a catch-and-shoot fest in the first half with Teletovic swishing his first five attempts. He's going to be used in certain matchups, so the inconsistency will be too annoying for most fantasy owners. Nov 6 - 12:05 AM

Mirza Teletovic scored three points with one 3-pointer in 15 minutes against the Pacers on Thursday.

The Bucks don't really need him to knock down treys anymore with Tony Snell playing well and Malcolm Brogdon already establishing a nice rapport with the other rotation guys. Teletovic is a cut candidate in most leagues.
Nov 3 - 10:46 PM

Mirza Teletovic will come off the bench on Saturday with Tony Snell starting ahead of him.

The writing has been on the wall since about two days after the Tony Snell trade. Teletovic has plenty of defensive holes in his game and he wasn't hitting shots. His fantasy value takes a hit here.
Oct 29 - 6:30 PM

Mirza Teletovic started the first half during his Bucks' debut on Wednesday, but he finished with only six points on 3-of-12 shooting, three boards and one assist in 27 minutes.

The four-year veteran is coming off a career-best season during which he averaged 12.2 points, 2.3 triples and 3.8 rebounds in just 21.3 minutes per game. He was benched after halftime and it's anyone's guess where he'll begin Saturday's game, but his per-minute upside as a perimeter shooter makes him a worthwhile specialist in most 12-team leagues.
Oct 27 - 12:04 AM

Mirza Teletovic will start next to Matthew Dellavedova, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jabari Parker and Miles Plumlee against the Hornets.

The Bucks do not have Tony Snell (ankle) for this game, so they'll start the power forward Teletovic. He did get some starts in the preseason and the Bucks will need him to space the floor. If he has a strong run to start the year, he could stick. If you need treys, give Teletovic a look.
Oct 26 - 6:23 PM

Mirza Teletovic started on Wednesday and had 14 points on 4-of-12 shooting with three 3-pointers, one rebound, one assist, one steal and one block in 25 minutes.

The Bucks badly need Teletovic's perimeter shooting, and his prospects are even brighter with the possibility of minutes at both SF and PF. He's worth a look in the final rounds if you need some 3-pointers and scoring with solid FT shooting.
Oct 19 - 10:33 PM

Mirza Teletovic will start next to Giannis Antetokounmpo, Matthew Dellavedova, Jabari Parker and Miles Plumlee on Wednesday.

Tony Snell (ankle) still isn't ready to go, so the Bucks will give Mirza a longer look tonight. Teletovic should be getting minutes in the mid 20s in the second unit this season.
Oct 19 - 6:48 PM

Mirza Teletovic scored nine points in a start at power forward on Monday, adding three boards, two steals and two treys in 27 minutes.

He was 2-of-5 from the field and hit all three of his free throws. Starting Teletovic would make sense for the Bucks because of their struggles from deep least season, and he gives point forward Giannis Antetokounmpo some more driving lanes with his floor spacing. Regardless of whether or not he starts, Teletovic will have a significant role and is a nice late-round pick for owners in need of treys. The Bucks gave him $30 million for a reason.
Oct 17 - 10:10 PM

Mirza Teletovic scored seven points with two rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer during his start on Saturday.

This is a new wrinkle for Teletovic to start, so he will take some time to adjust. He attempted five treys in his 17 minutes, which is the primary reason why he'll get minutes next to guys like Jabari Parker and Giannis Antetokounmpo. He set the NBA record for most treys by a reserve last year and there's no doubt he'll be firing away in Milwaukee -- they were last in treys last year. If you whiff on treys, Mirza could help you out late.
Oct 8 - 11:44 PM

Matthew Dellavedova, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jabari Parker, Mirza Teletovic and Greg Monroe will start on Saturday.

This seems like a smart starting lineup. If Mirza starts, that would give the Bucks two good catch-and-shoot guys to help space for Giannis and Monroe. A strong preseason from Teletovic would make him a nice late-round specialist for treys.
Oct 8 - 8:26 PM

Mirza Teletovic scored 10 points with three rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 20 minutes on Monday.

The Bucks are going to mix up their starting units, but Mirza should play almost all of his minutes at the four. While several Bucks are expected to add more treys, they will need Teletovic to fire away. He's a sneaky 3-pointers specialist in fantasy.
Oct 3 - 10:49 PM

Mirza Teletovic said the Bucks need his shooting.

He's right. Even with Khris Middleton, the Bucks were dead last in the NBA for 3-pointers last season. Teletovic has played for coach Jason Kidd before, so he should have a smooth transition on his new team. The Bucks are going to have some wild lineup combos this year, so there should be a role for Mirza in the mid 20s for minutes. He's a sneaky late-round pick.
Aug 31 - 3:46 PM

Jason Kidd said that Mirza Teletovic is much more than just a 3-point shooter.

"He can shoot the three, we all know that," Kidd said. "But he can put the ball on the floor and get to the basket. He's a team guy. He's a little more athletic than you think, and we need that toughness. He's not afraid." Milwaukee attempted just 15.6 treys per game last season which was the lowest amount in the NBA, so Teletovic should have a nice role off the bench after averaging 12.2 points, 3.8 boards, 1.1 assists and 2.2 3-pointers with the Suns last season. If you need 3-pointers towards the end of your draft, Teletovic could be worth a look.
Jul 10 - 11:12 AM

Mirza Teletovic has agreed to a three-year, $30 million deal with the Bucks.

Teletovic played well for the Suns last season, averaging 12.2 points, 3.8 boards, 1.1 assists and 2.2 3-pointers on 42.7 percent shooting from the field. The stretch four could see around 20 minutes per game off the bench in Milwaukee, and he will continue to be a 3-point specialist in fantasy leagues.
Jul 1 - 3:02 PM

Mirza Teletovic, who will be an unrestricted free agent, is open to returning to the Suns.

"I love the people in Phoenix, the organization and the people around the Suns," Teletovic said. "Everybody wants the team to be better and I think I can help the team be where they want to get." Teletovic added that Earl Watson's hire was an important factor, but it will take a raise from this season's $5.5 million salary in order to retain him.
