Bojan Bogdanovic rests as Fenerbahce faces Turkish test

Fenerbahce, once considered a likely Final Four team in the Euroleague, ended its international play on Friday, losing to Besiktas in the Euroleague Round of 16, finishing with a dismal 2-12 record. The team had already lost its coach, fired as the team spiraled down. Now, it can focus on the Turkish League, where it's in fourth, but only two games out of first.

Bojan Bogdanovic had only eight points on 3-of-7 shooting in 25 minutes on Friday. It appeared that Fener was resting the Nets 2011 draft pick, knowing they'd need him to play meaningful games in the Turkish League, which resumes on Sunday. Still no word on Fener's willingness to re-negotiate his buyout or his willingness to come over next year. He has said he wants to play in the NBA, but that he might have to wait a year.

Ilkan Karaman, the other Euro-Net on the Fener roster, continued his good play of late. The 6'10" PF is not considered as good an NBA prospect as Bogdanovic. On Friday, he scored 10 points on 4-of-5 shooting, including 1-of-2 from three. He scored 8 points on 4-of-6 shooting in a Turkish League contest earlier in the week.
