Billy King wasn't on hand Wednesday to watch Bojan Bogdanovic play in the Turkish League playoffs. He's on his way to Istanbul. But whoever the Nets had in the stands got a good look at what the 6'8" swingman can do. Bogdanovic shot 8--for-12, including 4-for-7 from deep, for 22 points in Fenerbahce's loss to Deron Williams old team, Besiktas.
The loss eliminated the disappointing Fener from the playoffs just as they were in the Euroleague playoffs last month. Many had thought the yellow and black was a legitimate contender for the Euroleague and Turkish league championships but injuries and a lack of chemistry hurt them. King will scout the Euroleague Final Four, starring Andrei Kirilenko, on Friday.
