Bojan Bogdanovic - Still on Fire

New, comments

Whatever shooting woes Nets pick Bojan Bogdanovic had earlier in the season, they're over.

Bogdanovic scored 27 points in an overtime win in the Turkish League Saturday, shooting 9-for-13 overall and 4-for-7 from deep for Fenerbahce. Of the 27, 19 came in the fourth quarter and overtime. Since January 1, in the Turkish League and Euroleague combined, he's averaged 20.0 points and shot 20-for-32, or 62.5%, from deep.

The 6'8" swingman also had three assists in the win over Trabzonspor. It was his combination of size, athleticism and skills that pushed Nets international scout Danko Cvjeticanin to recommend him, in spite of European commitments.

In pre-draft discussions, Cvjeticanin reportedly told Billy King that Bogdanovic is "a combination of (Peja) Stojakovic and (Carlos) Delfino." King sent $1.5 million and the Nets 2013 second rounder to Minnesota for Bogdanovic's rights.
