Bojan Bogdanovic scored 16 points, grabbed four rebounds and handed out an assist as Fenerbahce beat Tofas in a Turkish Cup competition in Istanbul Tuesday, then seven points, five assists and four rebounds Wednesday as Fener gets ready for its next big test, against the Thunder Saturday. The game will be broadcast on NBA TV, starting at 3 p.m.

Neither Tuesday's warm-up nor Saturday's game was the big news out of Bogdanovic's camp this week.  Multiple reports confirm that the 6'8" swingman will not extend with Fener as expected but will become a free agent next July, leaving him open to join the Nets without a buyout.

Crobasket, the Croatian basketball site, reported, "Fener wanted to tie up the Croatian national team member  for several years, and although it is a financially better deal than his current deal, the native of Mostar disliked the buyout clause. His freedom would cost two million euros.:

Bogdanovic, who was the youngest member of the All-Eurobasket last month, has said he wants to join the Nets, but he is likely to get offers from other European teams, particularly F.C. Barcelona, the Spanish powerhouse.  And the Nets are likely to get more offers for him. One league source said teams were calling the Nets about Bogdanovic during Eurobasket games.
