Mazzeo: Brooklyn Nets "gauging interest" in Bojan Bogdanovic? Not true, says league source

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Mike Mazzeo reports that the Nets may be looking to trade Bojan Bogdanovic, who after a great end to his rookie year has played poorly in both FIBA Europe and the NBA.

However, a league source familiar with the Nets thinking tells NetsDaily that there is "NO truth at all" to the report.

After winning Rookie of the Month in April, after averaging 14.4 points and shooting 49 percent from deep, Bogdanovic hasn't looked like the same player. He's averaging 6.5 points in 24 minutes, hitting only 26 percent of his three point shots.  Worse in recent games he's looked like he's lost confidence in his shot.

"Gauging interest" of course is a long way from actually making a trade. He is currently one of only seven players the Nets can trade before December 15. After that date, players signed during the off-season can be dealt.  Max players like Brook Lopez can't be traded until January 15.
