Bojan Bogdanovic explodes for 31 in historic Euroleague game

Bojan Bogdanovic's contract with Fenerbahce of Istanbul gives him an "NBA out" this summer. Whether the Nets can find a way to pay him, one thing is certain: his value is going up. The 6'8" swingman with the sweet stroke and post game scored 31 Friday vs. Siena in a Euroleague match that also saw Bobby Brown, Siena's 6'2" guard, tie the Euroleague single game scoring record of 41. Siena won, 98-91.

Bogdanovic, taken at #31 in the 2011 Draft, scored 31 points in 33 minutes, hitting 10 of 14 shots, including 4-of-5 from downtown. He went to the line 10 times, hitting seven. He also grabbed four rebounds and handed out one assist. League sources have said they consider the 23-year-old a "lottery equivalent" this year, particularly since the 2013 Draft is seen as weak.

Bogdanovic continues to add to his 50/40/75 stats, that is 50 percent overall, 40 percent from three and 75 percent from the line, in the Euroleague and Turkish League. Ilkan Karaman, taken at #57 last year, didn't score in 10 minutes of action, but grabbed three boards.
