Going to make my pitch here for Bogdan Bogdanovic. 6'6 28 year old shooting guard who averaged 15.1 points on 29 mins, 37.2% from 3, 44.0$ FG%. Also 3.4 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 1.0 steals. He is an RFA, but Kings already paid Buddy and will have to pay Fox next season. How much are the Kings willing to spend to bring back Bogdan? Divac is no longer their GM, so not sure what their priorities are in keeping Bogdan.
Guy is pretty clutch:
Guy also led Team Serbia in last year's FIBA world cup:
He also led the US-Serbia game with 28 points for the win.
We really need a guy who can create his own offense (so Pascal won't have to anymore), and Bogdan can do that. His 3 point shooting will also look very nice next to a guy like Giannis. I don't think Bogdan will cost nearly as much as Fred, so we save a bit of money here as well. Also possible we try to do a sign and trade with Norm going to the Kings (they may like Norm's championship experience, and Norm fits better behind Buddy than Bogdan does).
I'm a big fan of Bogdanovic, but the kings will pay him and looking to trade Buddy Hield, they have the same skills, but Bogdan better in Creation and also cheaper than Hield and Fred. I would love him, but I don't see it. But if there's a chance - I'm in.
Buddy has a pretty bad contract IMO; good luck trying to trade that. Rumor is Bogdan is looking for $15M plus. If we let FVV walk, we can pay that. First woe Bogdan, then work out a deal with the Kings in a sign and trade. I think Bogdan will thrive on our team (get him off the Kings for one).
