Overall, he shot 40 percent for the regular season and playoffs, jumping his three point shooting from 38 percent up to 42.4 percent (25-for-59) in postseason.
Bogans is 31 years old with eight years of experience in the league. He has a reputation for being a strong perimeter defender. "Keith will give us defensive toughness and experience," said Billy King. "He will add depth and versatility to our perimeter." His contract, a vets' minimum deal, is guaranteed and will pay him around $600,000.
