At Least One Rival Team Filed Formal Complaint On Bogdan Bogdanovic Deal 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Nov 25, 2020 4:22 pm

At least one rival team filed a formal complaint to the NBA league office on Wednesday regarding the Milwaukee Bucks' reported sign-and-trade for Bogdan Bogdanovic, sources tell Eric Fischer of Bleacher Report.


The league informed both the Bucks and Sacramento Kings that afternoon that it would open an investigation into the alleged sign-and-trade already being agreed to between the parties.


Bogdanovic's camp insisted they never discussed the particulars of an agreement with Bucks officials and that they were only made aware of the negotiations. Bogdanovic even let Giannis Antetokounmpo and Thannis Antetokounmpo know he had never agreed to a contract with the Bucks.


The Bucks and Kings agreed to a framework of a sign-and-trade with Donte DiVincenzo, Ersan Ilyasova and D.J. Wilson going to Sacramento in exchange for Bogdanovic and Justin James. The Bucks would have then become free to negotiate a contract with Bogdanovic when free agency opened on Friday.


All the players included within the trade framework were notified.

It’s only a problem if done by a small market team

The deal didn’t happen, so move on. Both the Bucks and Kings lost in the end.

It's just bad timing for the Bucks. Commish Silver decided to crack down on the early trades being made before the start of trading season and the quick announcements. I think he wanted to level the trading field to give other teams a chance to respond. The teams said fine, but that Silver would have to enforce the rules and make teams take the rule on the books seriously. One or both of the teams should be fined and made an example of as news of an incomplete deal leaked.

That said, it was strange that the Bucks released Ilyasova before his contract was guaranteed the next day. So what if his contract became guaranteed? If they had a framework of a deal in place, then why didn't they just follow thru and negotiate with Bogi?
