Bogdanovic - "Poor Man's Manu"?

Bojan Bogdanovic played fairly well in an easy Euroleague win Friday, scoring 8 points on 2-for-5 shooting in 16 minutes as Fenerbahce beat Olympiacos, 86-70, before 15,000 fans in Istanbul. Thabo Sefolosha, who's still playing for Fener, played 30 minutes at the wing and scored six.

Friday's other "news" on Bogdanovic was John Hollinger's analysis in his Nets profile. Hollinger didn't discuss the two Nets picks who will play in New Jersey this season, but he lavished praise on Bogdanovic, calling him "something of a poor man's Manu Ginobili" and "a European player with great talent, but a bad contract" who was "time on his side". With Sefolosha headed back to OKC, Nets officials expect him to develop quicker.
