Croatian sources report that Bojan Bogdanovic is expected to finalize his deal with the Nets Monday or Tuesday at the latest ... and team officials are assuring whoever's asking that the 6'8" swingman will suit up in a Brooklyn uniform next season. Bogdanovic will join with other Croatian national team members Monday at the team's training facility.
Bogdanovic said over the weekend that he has not yet agreed to a three-year deal with the Nets, but added the chances of joining the Nets are "a little better" than 50-50. The status of Bogdanovic's buyout from Fenerbahe in Turkey remain murky. The smaller the buyout, the less Bogdanovic will have to pay. The Nets can pay no more that $575,000 toward the buyout.
Meanwhile, Bogdanovic took time off from his vacation in his hometown of Mostar to visit Caritas facilities for people with disabilities, speaking with each client individually. Afterwards, reported the Caritas director, Bogdanovic provided a "generous" donation.
