Bojan Bogdanovic scored 14 hollow points during Wednesday's season opener, making 5-of-9 FGs and 3-of-3 FTs with zero rebounds, assists, steals or blocks.
Bogdanovic earned the start at SF, as expected, and there's no reason to think he'll lose the gig. Indiana is very thin on the wings, with guys like Lance Stephenson and Damien Wilkins providing depth, although Bogdanovic could eventually face more competition from Glenn Robinson III (ankle). Even as the starter, though, he doesn't offer much beyond points and threes. Oct 18 - 11:12 PM

Bojan Bogdanovic scored five points with two rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday.

He was fairly quiet today, but the Pacers will need him for spacing in this offense. Plus, he should be all set for heavy minutes due to Glenn Robinson III (ankle) set to miss the next two months. While he could score in the teens, Bogdanovic doesn't do enough on the stat sheet to be targeted in standard leagues unless you're looking for a specialist.
Oct 4 - 10:47 PM

Bojan Bogdanovic netted a team-high 28 points during Sunday's loss to Russia to go with three 3-pointers, four rebounds, one assist, two steals and two turnovers in 34 minutes.

Bogdanovic got his points efficiently, going 10-of-16 from the field and 5-of-7 from the charity stripe, but the rest of the guys on Team Croatia seemingly couldn't buy a bucket. Scoring is rarely an issue for Bogdanovic, but the lack of diversity in his stat lines caps his upside.

Bojan Bogdanovic scored 23 points to lead Croatia to a 76-72 win over Montenegro on Monday.

He shot an efficient 6-of-10 from the field in 32 minutes with six rebounds, one assist and four 3-pointers, so he's now averaging 22.3 points and 2.7 triples through three games in Eurobasket. Bogdanovic is expected to start at SF for Indiana, and while he doesn't have the greatest upside, he'll provide enough points and triples to warrant ownership in standard leagues.
Sep 4 - 1:32 PM

Bojan Bogdanovic said he hopes he can be a starter with the Pacers next season.

"I hope that I will be the starter and that I’ll play important minutes," Bogdanovic said. "I don’t want to be in the NBA just to be here. I want to play and I think the Pacers are the right move and place for me." Head coach Nate McMillan said that Bogdanovic will have to earn his spot in the starting five over the course of training camp, but with Glenn Robinson being the only other small forward on the roster, the odds are in Bogdanovic's favor of securing a role in the starting five in Indiana.
Jul 12 - 12:30 PM

Bojan Bogdanovic has agreed to a two-year, $21 million deal with the Pacers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com.

The Pacers have some money to throw around and they'll add the newly unrestricted free agent -- the Wizards withdrew their qualifying offer just minutes ago. It's actually a good opportunity for Bogdanovic and he has a good chance to start on the wing next to Victor Oladipo. Bogdanovic gives the Pacers some much-needed spacing in their offense, but he won't be doing much else besides shooting.
Jul 7 - 2:48 PM

The Wizards have withdrawn their qualifying offer to restricted free agent Bojan Bogdanovic, according to David Aldridge of NBA.com.

There was some hope the Wizards could do a sign-and-trade deal involving Bogie, but that won't happen now. Bogdanovic has received some reported interest from the Kings, Nuggets and Hawks, so it's possible something happens there in the next couple days. The former Net would likely be coming off the bench next season.
Jul 7 - 2:34 PM

The Wizards are reportedly looking to execute a sign-and-trade deal involving Bojan Bogdanovic.

Washington will likely be matching Brooklyn's max-offer sheet for Otto Porter, so they just can't realistically retain Bogdanovic given that he's seeking a deal that would start at $16 million annually. The Wizards are reportedly seeking a traded player exception in the sign-and-trade deal, so it'll be interesting to see how this situation plays out. Thus far, the Kings, Nuggets and Hawks have all been linked to Bogdanovic.
Jul 5 - 11:15 AM

Restricted free agent Bojan Bogdanovic reportedly wants a three- or four-year contract worth roughly $16 million per season.

The sharp-shooting swingman is in his prime at 28 years old, and it makes sense for him to maximize his value, but that's a steep asking price. He's never averaged more than 13.7 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.4 assists or 0.4 steals per game, all of which came last season, so no matter his destination he's a dubious fantasy asset. The Kings, Nuggets and Hawks all reportedly have interest in him, but Washington can match any offer for their restricted FA.
Jul 3 - 2:18 AM

Restricted free agent Bojan Bogdanovic is receiving "serious interest" from the Kings, Nuggets, Hawks, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.

Before we get to the details on this, we have to say we're rooting for the Kings to get him so Bojan Bogdanovic and Bogdan Bogdanovic can be on the same team -- they are not related, by the way. Bogie is a restricted free agent, but it could be tough for the Wizards to bring him back, assuming they are in fact going to match on Otto Porter.
Jul 1 - 6:00 PM

The Wizards have reportedly extended a qualifying offer to Bojan Bogdanovic.

This means Bogdanovic will become a restricted free agent along with Otto Porter. The Wizards will prioritize re-signing Porter, so Bogdanovic will only be back in Washington if his price doesn't get out of hand. After his mid-season trade from Brooklyn, Bogdanovic averaged 12.7 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.7 triples.
Jun 26 - 10:07 PM

Candace Buckner of the Washington Post said the Wizards "may not prioritize" keeping Bojan Bogdanovic if he can "command a big payday elsewhere."

The Wizards gave up their 2017 first-round pick in order to acquire Bogdanovic, but their biggest priority is to re-sign Otto Porter first. Both players are restricted free agents, but Porter is expected to receive max contract offers which limits Washington's financial flexibility. Bogdanovic averaged 12.7 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.7 triples following his trade from the Nets and shouldn't have any problem landing a sizable contract this summer.
May 18 - 10:43 AM

Bojan Bogdanovic (illness) scored five points on 1-of-2 shooting with one rebound in 16 minutes in Monday's Game 7 loss to Boston.

Bogdanovic was the only bench player to score for Washington and everyone else was 0-of-3 from the field. The second unit has been Washington's biggest weakness all season, so expect that to be a priority this summer after they try to lock up Otto Porter to a new deal.
May 15 - 11:56 PM

Bojan Bogdanovic (illness) will play on Monday vs. the Celtics in Game 7.

According to coach Scott Brooks, everyone on the Wizards is available. Bogdanovic has been battling the flu for a few days and sat out of Saturday's practice, but expect him to see his normal role with minutes in the high teens or low 20s.
May 15 - 12:03 PM

Bojan Bogdanovic (illness) did not practice on Saturday.

It's just some rest after he had a bad case of the flu on Friday. Bogdanovic was still able to play 17 minutes in Game 6, so he should be in that neighborhood again for Monday.
