The Clippers are expected to keep guard Milos Teodosic despite their crowded backcourt, according to an NBA official not authorized to speak publicly.
Teodosic exercised a $6.3-million option last month. Had the Clippers waived him before Sunday, only $2.1 million would have been guaranteed.
The Clippers’ roster stands at 17, two above the NBA maximum, with eight guards under contract. And restricted free-agent forward Montrezl Harrell still hasn’t signed a contract.
Teodosic, 31, played 45 games last season after coming over from Europe, averaging 9.5 points and 4.6 assists in 25.2 minutes. He shot 41.9% from the field, 37.9% on threes.
