Sean Deveney of Sporting News and others are handicapping Eurobasket 2011 for those of us who don't pay enough attention to basketball over there. There are 50 NBA players on 24 European teams competing in the FIBA qualifying tournament for the London Olympics, and Deveney says Bojan Bogdanovic is someone to keep an eye on.
"The Nets may have gotten a second-round steal with Bogdanovic, a 22-year-old, 6-8 shooting guard who will play a featured role for a talented Croatian team," Deveney wrote. "Bogdanovic won’t be able to play for the Nets until 2012-13, but he could be an immediate contributor."
Meanwhile, ESPN announced plans to webcast every game starting August 31.
