Mirza Teletovic scored 17 points on 6-of-8 shooting (5-of-6 from deep) with one rebound, three assists and one steal in 26 minutes off the bench on Wednesday against the Lakers.
This is good Mirza and it’s not really that great outside of the threes and points. If Tyson Chandler’s back injury proves to keep him out then Teletovic’s overall value proposition might move above the top-150 threshold, but as usual with him he’ll be an up-and-down asset operating within a small sample size. The Suns aren’t being very vocal about anything having to do with their frontcourt in the postgame coverage, which makes sense because it was Jon Leuer (22 & 14) who had the big night and they seemingly want nothing to do with him. To be clear from our earlier blurb, we’re calling Leuer a must-own player and hoping the Suns cooperate this time around.
