Milos Teodosic - Olympiacos With its 13th signing of the offseason, Olympiacos has contracted the skills of Milos Teodosic, one of the world's most promising young guards. Teodosic (195, 20) signed to join the Reds for five seasons after having spent his career so far with FMP Zeleznik and Borac Cacak in his native Serbia. Teodosic is coming off a busy summer. He debuted with the Serbian national team at EuroBasket 2007, averaging 9 points per game, while a few weeks ago he led his country's under-20 national team to the European title while earning MVP honors himself. In that tournament, Teodosic averaged 15.4 points, 5.4 assists and 2.4 rebounds, while he poured 22 points in the final against Spain, which Serbia won 87-78. Teodosic had already celebrated another couple of gold medals, as he was a leading member of the under-19 and under-17 Serbian national teams that conquered Europe in 2005 and 2003, respectively. Last season with FMP, Teodosic averaged 7.8 points, 2.9 assists and 1.2 steals in less than 20 minutes per game of ULEB Cup play. He also put up 8 points and 2.4 assists on average in 30 Adriatic League games. He and FMP also raised the Serbian Cup title together. Teodosic is set to share playmaking duties for Olympiacos with Roderick Blackney. Meanwhile, another Olympiacos guard, Renaldas Seibutis will have to undergo surgery in order to get over his recent back injury and will be sidelined for at least two months, the club said.
