Bojan Bogdanovic is heading to All-Star Weekend in Toronto. The second year player out of Croatia was named to the World Team Roster for the 2016 Rising Stars challenge on Friday, February 12.

Bogdanovic is just one of four players in Nets' history to play in the game both as a rookie and sophomore. He joins Mason Plumlee, Brook Lopez and Kenyon Martin.

The expectations are minimal for any member of the Brooklyn Nets to be selected to participate in the NBA All-Star Game, along with the main events like the Three-point shootout and Slam Dunk Competition. At the very least of it, we can look forward to watching Bogie and Team World.

This is what the rosters will look like...

Team World

Clint Capela (Houston Rockets)

Mario Hezonja (Orlando Magic)

Nikola Jokic (Denver Nuggets)

Nikola Mirotic (Chicago Bulls)

Emmanuel Mudiay (Denver Nuggets)

Raul Neto (Utah Jazz)

Kristaps Porzingis (New York Knicks)

Dwight Powell (Dallas Mavericks)

Andrew Wiggins (Minnesota Timberwolves)


Team USA

Jordan Clarkson (Los Angeles Lakers)

Rodney Hood (Utah Jazz)

Zach LaVine (Minnesota Timberwolves)

Nerlens Noel (Philadelphia 76ers)

Jahlil Okafor (Philadelphia 76ers)

Jabari Parker (Milwaukee Bucks)

Elfrid Payton (Orlando Magic)

D'Angelo Russell (Los Angeles Lakers)

Marcus Smart (Boston Celtics)

Karl-Anthony Towns (Minnesota Timberwolves)

Bogdanovic has averaged 9.5 points and 3.4 rebounds on 42 percent shooting in 46 games this season. He's shown capabilities on certain nights, but his inconsistency continues to plague him from becoming a real weapon for the Nets.
