Adrian Wojnarowski: The Wizards feel like if there’s a wing player that they can get out in the trade market… Lou Williams, with the Lakers, they have interest in; Bojan Bogdanovic, with the Nets… Washington has shown an inclination to give up a future first-round draft pick, potentially even in this draft to get out a veteran who may even turn out to be a rental for them.

“I had a busy summer,’’ Bogdanovic said. “I didn’t rest after the season — 20 or 15 days and I started practicing right away with my personal trainer to be in shape for pre-Olympic tournament. I had three or four weeks after the Olympic games, so I came here, got many treatments. “They’re trying to put me on the court slowly. This is the first day that I participated in a scrimmage. They know how to do it, and I’ll go day by day, slowly.”

At Wednesday’s press conference, Kenny Atkinson and Sean Marks talked about how much they respected what Bojan Bogdanovic did this summer … and how, with him saying he’s playing the best basketball of his life, they need steady him for the long haul ahead. “We recognize what’s he’s done and we respect it tremendously,” Atkinson said. “To be the leader of that team, the coaching staff has great respect for him and I think our players have great respect for him too.”
After all, he’s spent the summer defying doubters. His red-hot play led Croatia — which failed to qualify for the London Olympics — to a surprise berth in Rio and a shocking run to the quarterfinals. Can helping Brooklyn reach the NBA postseason be any harder? “I think we can,’’ Bogdanovic told the Post. “They can write what they want. … But we’re going to work hard to give it our best. When we get in a game, we have a chance to beat anybody. It’s going to be tough, but if we play like we practice, we have a chance.”
