November 30, 2014 Updates

This season the 25-year-old rookie from Croatia is shooting 54.7 percent overall and 44.1 percent from 3-point range in Brooklyn, and just 26.4 percent overall and 19.2 percent from beyond the arc away from home. Bogdavoic and the Nets will hope a return home this week will turn his game around beginning Sunday at the Barclays Center. “Sounds like a rookie,” Nets coach Lionel Hollins said. “Sounds like a rookie. He’s more comfortable playing in Brooklyn, more comfortable playing in front of the home crowd, and when you go on the road it’s new. Every arena he walks into his new, and it’s just part of the growing process. He’ll get better.” New York Post

The rookie shot just 35 percent from the floor and 22.7 percent from 3-point range this preseason. But after waiting three years to get him into the NBA, the Nets are giving him every opportunity to succeed and coach Lionel Hollins fully understands how tough an adjustment Bogdanovic is being asked to make. “When you’re just coming to a foreign country and learning a different culture — I know he speaks English, but it’s still a different culture — and it’s tougher, city life in New York, the NBA versus Europe, the rules are different, it’s an adjustment and he’s gotten more comfortable as we’ve gone along,” Hollins said. “He’s progressing. It’s still a process, but I like what he’s done and I’m sure he’ll be a better shooter as we go along. He’s been a good shooter in Europe. But he’s a really good basketball player. I just want him to go out and be aggressive and make whatever play is there to make.” New York Post

Making the transition from Europe to the NBA has proven to be a difficult adjustment for some players. Bojan Bogdanovic fully understands that. Still, the rookie forward feels like he can come in and contribute right away for the Brooklyn Nets in 2014-15. “It’s not gonna be easy,” Bogdanovic told reporters Monday during his introductory news conference at the team’s practice facility. “I have to make some adjustments -- especially because there’s a lot of games, a lot more than in Europe. But I am ready, and I think I can help the team immediately. ESPN.com
