Can put the ball on the floor and excels at taking his man to the hoop and finishing strongly. Does a nice job poaching steals and keying transition as a passer. When teams back off him he can hit the open three. Very skilled for a player with his height. A solid passer.
Needs more consistency with his jumper, especially from the mid-range out. Could be more of a rebounder. A bit of a late bloomer. Needs to show the ability to successfully make the transition to the NBA game.
Skilled swingman with an emerging game.
Movements & Injuries
Signed by the Brooklyn Nets to a three-year contract.
Acquired from the Miami Heat.
Drafted by the Miami Heat in the 2nd round (31st overall) in 2011, then traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves for the rights to Norris Cole. Minnesota traded the draft rights to Bojan Bogdanovic to New Jersey for a second-round pick in 2013 and cash.
Nets coach Lionel Hollins told the New York Post he has no desire to change the starting lineup as of this point. | 10/18/2014 5:55 PM
Nets coach Lionel Hollins told the New York Post he has no desire to change the starting lineup as of this point.
That means 25-year-old Bojan Bogdanovic will start at small forward. We expect Joe Johnson to also receive minutes at the small forward position, but Bogdanovic is still a late-round flier pick if one is willing to take on the risk.
Report: Bajon Bogdanovic signs with Brooklyn | 07/07/2014 5:14 PM
Bojan Bogdanovic has reportedly agreed to a three-year deal with the Nets, with the a player option in the third year.

Brooklyn will give Bogdanovic the mini mid-level exception. Bogdanovic averaged 14.8 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 1.2 three-pointers on 46.8 percent shooting during his last season in Europe.
Bojan Bogdanovic expected to come to Brooklyn | 07/06/2014 1:56 PM
Media in Croatia, Bosnia, and Turkey have all been reporting that the Nets 2011 draft pick Bojan Bogdanovic has decided to leave Europe and join the Nets.
With Shaun Livingston gone to Golden State, Brooklyn can now offer Bogdanovic the mini mid-level exception, and he could sign sometime this week. Bojan has faced NBA competition twice during the NBA Europe games, scoring 11 points vs. Boston two years ago, and 19 points vs. OKC last year.
Nets may bring over Bojan Bogdanovic | 07/02/2014 10:10 AM
The Nets may sign 2011 draft pick Bojan Bogdanovic for the 2014-15 season.
New York Post
Bogdanovic's contract with Fenerbahce Ulker is expiring and Brooklyn might be ready to bring him over after watching him develop overseas for three seasons. His stats don't jump off the page and he shot below 30 percent from downtown last year, but he's a low-risk option on a rookie-scale contract.
Nets don't want to trade Bogdanovic | 12/13/2013 7:54 PM
The Nets have "zero intention" to trade Bojan Bogdanovic or a first-round pick for Kyle Lowry.
Howard Beck on Twitter
The Nets were perceived as frontrunners earlier in the day, but things have cooled off a bit as the day has moved along. They're going to have to give up something, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see them bend on either Bogdanovic or their 2020 first-round pick.
Bojan Bogdanovic scores 22 in victory | 09/16/2013 8:31 PM
Bojan Bogdanovic scored 22 points on 8-of-15 shooting with three rebounds in 36 minutes during Croatia's 92-88 victory over Greece on Monday.
He has played well throughout the tournament and now Croatia plays Ukraine in the quarterfinals on Thursday. Bogdanovic is not going to be with the Nets this year, but since he does intend to play with them at some point, it's nice to see he can put up numbers. He has range and could be on the radar next summer.
Bogdanovic to play for Nets at some point | 07/28/2013 3:39 PM
Bojan Bogdanovic said that he intends to play for the Nets at some point.
The Nets and Bogdanovic had their deal fall through after it looked like they were going to bring him to Brooklyn. His current deal with Fenerbahce Ulker in Turkey is just for one year, so that will open up the door for the swingman. The aging Nets would likely put him in their rotation next season.
Update: Nets will not buy out Bogdanovic | 07/10/2013 12:03 PM
Updating a previous report, the Nets will not buyout Bojan Bogdanovic's contract with his European team.
Nets GM Billy King suggested he has a "Plan B" and he'll have the mini-mid-level exception to lure another free agent to Brooklyn. The Nets have known interest in Andrei Kirilenko but he seems very unlikely to accept their maximum three-year, $10 million offer.
Nets GM admits 'concern' about Bojan buyout | 07/10/2013 11:25 AM
Nets GM Billy King admitted that there is "concern" about Bojan Bogdanovic's buyout from his contract in Europe.
Rod Boone on Twitter
The two sides are still working on a deal, but the Nets can only contribute a defined amount and King said he has a "Plan B" in case the buyout falls apart.
Bojan Bogdanovic hasn't agreed to play in NBA | 07/06/2013 3:03 PM
Updating a previous item, Bojan Bogdanovic said he has not agreed to play with the Brooklyn Nets next season.
He added that the chances are better than 50-50 and the talks are in the early stages. It was reported on Friday that Bogdanovic signed a three-year deal, but it sounds like it may have been a bit premature. The Nets used a portion of their mid-level exception on the reported deal and it would have been a great signing. If all goes well, the Nets should have him signed in the coming days.
Nets to bring Bojan Bogdanovic to the NBA | 07/05/2013 9:06 PM
Nets have reached agreement to bring Bojan Bogdanovic to the NBA this season on a three-year deal.
Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter
He was a 2011 draft pick and played in Euroleague last year, averaging 16 points per game on 48.9 percent shooting. The Nets will likely use him on the wing behind Paul Pierce and Joe Johnson along with Jason Terry. He made 1.6 triples per game and shot 40.9 percent from downtown, so he does have some upside if Johnson or Pierce needed to miss time.
Bojan Bogdanovic's buyout hasn't been changed | 05/28/2013 10:19 AM
Bojan Bogdanovic's buyout from his current team has not been reduced despite reports to the contrary, according to his agent Marc Cornstein.
The Brooklyn Game
Cornstein said the number "has not changed," and although he referred to it as a "manageable figure," it will not be reduced. The number is "potentially negotiable," so it sounds as if it has the chance to be reduced once the two sides enter into negotiations. Bogdanovic is expected to join the Nets prior to the 2013/14 season.
The Nets are "all but certain" to use their mini-mid-level exception to sign G/F Bojan Bogdanovic, according to Tim Bontemps of the NY Post.
Bogdanovic is currently playing in the Euroleague, where he's averaging 15.9 points while shooting 41 percent from downtown. It has been reported as "90 to 95 percent" likely that he'll jump to the NBA next season, where he'd be scrapping for wing minutes off the Nets' bench.
Report: 90-95 percent Bogdanovic joins NBA | 05/09/2013 4:32 PM
There is a 90 to 95 percent Bojan Bogdanovic plays for the Nets in 2013-14, a source with direct knowledge of the situation told SNY.tv on Thursday.
GM Billy King said earlier in the week that Bogdanovic is "someone we're looking to bring over." The Croatian-born swingman has one year left on his contract in Turkey but there is an NBA out clause that is certainly feasible for both Bogdanovic and the Nets. Bogdanovic averaged 15.9 points with Fenerbahce this season and would likely spell Gerald Wallace next season.
Bogdanovic may join Nets for 2013-14 season? | 05/05/2013 10:23 PM
The Nets may sign G/F Bojan Bogdanovic out of the Euroleague next season, according to GM Billy King.
ESPN New York
Bogdanovic signed a multi-year deal with Fenerbahce in Turkey in 2011, but that is no longer an impediment to his joining the NBA. He averaged 15.9 points while shooting 40.5 percent from downtown this year, but we don't expect him to have fantasy value if he joins Brooklyn for the 2013-14 season.
