Billy King told beat reporters at Saturday's Draft Combine that Bojan Bogdanovic is anxious to join the Nets, having watched a lot of the team's games on NBA League Pass, but he said there's not resolution yet of his contract issues with Fenerbahce of Istanbul

"We had a good meeting," he said of his talk with the Nets #31 pick in the 2011 Draft. "He’s anxious to play. In due time we’ll talk about his contract and see if we can get him out. But he’s anxious to come and play. He had NBA League Pass and watched our games, so he’s as anxious as he was the day we drafted him."

King didn't dismiss that Bogdanovic could join the team for this season, but didn't sound encouraged. So is next season a possibility?, he was asked "That’s the next step. We have to work on that part." Even if that's resolved, the Nets will have to negotiate a contract with Bogdanovic, who as a second rounder is not restricted by rookie salary scale.
