The Brooklyn Nets and 2011 second round draft pick Bojan Bogdanovic have agreed to a three-year deal, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. The third year of the deal includes a player option. The terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.
Bogdanovic was taken with the 31st overall selection in 2011. He spent the last two years playing over in Turkey. At 6'7 and 220 pounds, he projects to play small forward in the NBA and will likely backup Paul Pierce in Brooklyn next season.
When he was drafted two years ago, most felt he would never make the transition to the NBA. Bogdanovic has since transformed his game, going from just an offensive-minded player to a guy who can contribute on both ends of the court.
A scouting report on Draft Express explains Bogdanovic likes to get out and run in transition while utilizing a strong crossover step and the ability to drive while dribbling with either hand. If Bogdanovic is able to adjust to the American game on the defensive end, he could be a valuable addition to the Nets' bench.
