Bojan Bogdanovic: "Certainly, one day you will see me in Brooklyn"

In an interview at the opening of the Team Croatia training camp this week, Bojan Bogdanovic said that although he will play with Fenerbahce in the Euroleague this season, he still intends to play for the Nets ... although he didn't say when.

Speaking about Fenerbahce, Bogdanovic said, "This club is excellent with great expectations, but certainly you will see me one day in Brooklyn.''

Bogdanovic, who will turn 25 next April, is still coveted by the Nets. Earlier this month, he couldn't get Fener to reduce his 1.5 million euro ($2 million) buyout and turned down the mini-MLE from the Nets. Billy King then moved on to Plan B, which turned into Andrei Kirilenko and Alan Anderson, both of whom signed two-year deals with player options for 2014-15.

"I might have become a hot commodity (in Croatia)," said Bogdanovic, who would have been the first Croatian in the NBA in three years. "But now I decided to stay at Fenerbahce in Istanbul and I'm glad that this story finally ended."

With their stock of draft picks depleted by the Celtic trade, Bogdanovic, one of Europe's top scorers, becomes even more attractive to the Nets.

Fenerbahce has gone on a Nets-like spending spree this summer, first signing Zeljko Obradovic, Europe's top coach, who recruited Bogdanovic. In the past week, they've assembled an all-star team of European players, including Linas Kleiza, just amnestied by the Raptors, and are pursuing Hedo Turkoglu. Still, amidst the new signings, Bogdanovic has not inked an extension with Fener as had been rumored he would. He reportedly wants more reasonable buyouts. If Fener does not extend him, he will become a free agent next summer.
