Who knows if Bojan Bogdanovic will be a Net next season. It will take a lot of financial manuevering --and probably some sacrifice on Bogdanovic's part-- to make it happen, but as one league source said this week, the Nets are "not stressing about it." They know what they have and they can afford to wait. After all, the Spurs waited three years for Manu Ginobili and Tiago Splitter.
Any concern about Bogdanovic's health (sore achilles) were alleviated Saturday when after missing two weeks and not looking in rhythm for another, the 6'8" swingman scored 23 points in 27 minutes as Fenerbahce beat Antalya, 90-83 to stay in a strong second place as the Turkish Basketball League playoffs near. Bogdanovic was 5-of-7 from three, 4-of-7 inside the. Although he averages seven trips to the line, Bogdanovic spent much of his time on the perimeter.
Meanwhile, the other Euro-Net survived a scare in the game. Ilkan Karaman underwent an MRI after leaving the game with a hip injury. On Sunday, Fener announced that the injury is not serious and he is day-to-day. Karaman scored seven points in 13 minutes before going down.
