Fenebahce Ulker had its own Media Day Tuesday, a day after their latest pre-season game, an 89-74 win over TED Ankara. The two Euro-Nets, Bojan Bogdanovic and Ilkan Karaman, played limited minutes in the "friendly". Bogdanovic had 17 points, two rebounds and an assist, Karaman two points and four rebounds.
Fener, who are among the leading contenders for the Euroleague crown, are 10 days away from their most important pre-season match-up, an October 5 game in Istanbul vs. the Celtics. It's the Celtics' first game of a European tour. Bogdanovic, in particular, will get a chance to show just how much he can play the NBA game. Tuesday, Billy King said the Nets could use their mini-MLE next summer on the 6'8" swingman, who the Nets believe has "lottery level talent."
