Adrian Wojnarowski reports the Nets are close to moving swingman Bojan Bogdanovic.
Teams pursuing Brooklyn’s Bojan Bogdanovic suggest they’re ramping up on offers, process moving closer to Nets choosing best available deal.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojVerticalNBA) February 21, 2017
On the weekend, Woj reported that the Wizards were interested in the 6'8" swingman ... and were willing to part with a first round pick to acquire a shooter.
With the trade deadline just two days away, this indicates that Bogdanovic is seen as one of Brooklyn's top assets, perhaps even more than Brook Lopez.
Bobby Marks mentions why Bogdanovic has so much value at the moment.
Although an expiring contract, restricted free agents like Bogdanovic have value to teams. The right to match offer sheets has appeal.— Bobby Marks (@BobbyMarks42) February 21, 2017
During his 2.5 year career in the NBA, Bogdanovic has averaged 11.2 points on 44 percent shooting. He's averaging a career best 14.2 points per game this season.
