Teodosic joins Clippers, so Beverley needs a new hotel name

When the LA Clippers agreed to a two-year, $12.3 million deal with Serbian guard Milos Teodosic, it created a bit of a complication for Patrick Beverley, who was acquired in a trade from the Houston Rockets earlier this summer.

However, it's not because Teodosic and Beverley functionally play the same position, or because they used to be teammates in Greece. It's because they have the same name. We'll let Beverley explain.

Yes, Beverley's secret check-in name for road games was that of the man he called "one of the best European Basketball players ever" as far back as 2010. With the two sharing a backcourt -- and a road hotel -- in 2017-18, Beverley will have to pick a new alias. Might we suggest he use the name of another of his 2009-10 Olympiacos teammates, Sofoklis Schortsanitis?
