The Nets rescinded their qualifying offer to Mirza Teletovic on Thursday, making him an unrestricted free agent.

Teletovic, a stretch-four, should receive plenty of interest around the league, and it'll be interesting to see if Brooklyn is able to retain him.

Jul 9 - 4:59 PM

Nets general manager Billy King said the team is still in talks with Mirza Teletovic and is hopeful that it will work out.

Teletovic is a restricted free agent after being extended a $4.6 million qualifying offer from the Nets, so the mostly likely scenario has him landing back in Brooklyn. The 29-year-old has reportedly been generating quite a bit of interest from teams in Europe, so he'll also have that as a fall-back option. We'll provide updates as more information becomes available, but Teletovic profiles more as a deep league fantasy option no matter where he lands.

It would definitely be surprising to see Teletovic head back to Europe, but the Nets have said that they want to bring him back. The market will dictate whether or not Brooklyn can afford to keep him, but Teletovic should garner plenty of interest due to his ability to stretch the floor.

The Nets have extended a qualifying contract offer to Mirza Teletovic, making him a restricted free agent.

His role with the Nets will be dictated by whether or not Thaddeus Young can be retained, but if Young is back with in Brooklyn next season, Teletovic will have a limited role with the club and he won't be much more than a 3-point specialist in deep leagues.

Mirza Teletovic said at a press conference in Bosnia that he would like to remain with the Nets next season.

Teletovic will be a restricted free agent this offseason, and it'll be interesting to see what kind of salary he can command on the open market. He's a quality stretch-four, which is a valuable asset in today's NBA, but his 3-point shooting is really the only thing he brings to the stat sheet. He’s unlikely to be anything more than a 3-point specialist in deep leagues, regardless of where he winds up.
